How to Run A Business From Home When You Have Small Children – Review by Alan Dapré
A lovely review from the lovely Alan Dapré, children’s author, screenwriter and playright, on my new eBook How to Run a Business From Home When You Have Small Children:
“Life for parents is always hectic and demanding and requires considerable patience, humour and organisation. Celina Lucas has written a compact book crammed with insight and helpful advice for parents. She shares her own experiences and laces them with practical thoughts on how to run a business from home.
It is easy to identify with the key topics under scrutiny. The section on being more organised struck a chord but plenty of tips and suggestions are offered up on a range of work start-up issues. This book aims to get you thinking more practically about your own situation and how best to run a home based business. Celina provides links to more detailed facts and advice, such as a free 7 day eCourse.
‘How to Run a Work from Home Business When You Have Small Children’ is geared mainly for mothers who are looking to get back into a viable working routine; it strives to encourage a proper balance between the need to support one’s children, yet earn money. As a stay at home Dad I was able to see the similarities with my life, and specific advice for Dads would definitely be welcome in any future edition.
It was refreshing to read statements such as ‘When you don’t have childcare . Accept that you’re not going to get much done.’ This book is not about going on a guilt trip, but getting a business going. It is a supportive, compact and honest assessment of what can be done with a young family.
Best of all, the points are made clearly and concisely so by the end you should feel motivated and keen to try something new.
A refreshing read to refresh your career.”
