Book Description

August 2005
- Have you ever wanted to go into consulting or build your own business working on contract (vs. full-time)?
- As a newlywed, are you wondering what you are going to do about your career once you have children?
- Are you a new mom torn between going back to work and staying home full time?
- Are you a former career woman turned stay-at-home mom, whose kids are now in school, looking for a way to rejoin the workforce?
- Or, are you a working mom who longs to leave the corporate world to do something more flexible so you can spend more time with your children?
- Are you retirement age looking to transition into part-time employment, rather than just quitting work "cold turkey"? - Or, have you simply ever wanted to quit your job to start your own business?
- Do you have professional skills, including computer expertise, that you would like to turn into part-time work?

No matter what stage you are in life, if you have been thinking about joining the ranks of the self-employed, this is the book for you!

Guys - don't let the title fool you. This bestselling book is packed with tips, advice, and "how-to" information on starting your own business, regardless of your gender. This is a business book and the advice applies to everyone, plus it makes a great gift for your wife, daughter, daughter-in-law, or any female in your life!

Women in particular face a unique dilemma once having children - whether or not to stay home or continue working. This is the first book of its kind to offer flexible business options for professional, technical, or career-oriented types who want to use their existing skills to go into consulting, public speaking, training, writing, coaching, or other areas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very insightful & thought provoking book! Sept. 25 2005
By Danielle S. Cotey - Published on Amazon.com
"As a new mom, I am in a situation where I am evaluating part-time work as an option. Full-Time Woman, Part-Time Career opened my eyes to some alternatives to a full-time job and gave me several ideas how to pursue this lifestyle. I especially enjoyed Chapter 3, the case study of Cynthia Long, a professional Project Manager. Reading about her made me think this would be a good fit for me, given my existing skills."

By Michelle Dunn - Published on Amazon.com
I had the pleasure of reading Karen's book Full-time Woman Part-Time Career and would highly recommend that any woman who is thinking about starting a business in any field pick up this book. Karen helps you to understand what you need to know and do to create a flexible business that fits your life and family. Everyone's life and family are different so your plan needs to be different in order for you to be a success. This book specifically covers women with small children, or who want to start a business before they have their children in order to be home for the children they will have. Just like a business plan or marketing plan, this is a book that will help you create a stay at home and work for yourself plan that can almost guarantee your success! This is a book you will refer back to again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Resource for Real Life! Aug. 20 2008
By Alicia N. Rodman - Published on Amazon.com
This is a powerful book. I use it daily as a resource. I recently attended the author's "Start Your Own Part-Time Business" workshop, with the intention of opening my own business. I am now further along that path, and everything we did in the workshop helped me get to where I am now. I keep going back to Karen's book and I use the workshop materials all of the time.
