A peak inside the book, from Jill…
“I would have to go back to work full-time. I tried to put on a brave face, but I was devastated. My perfect world was crumbling, and I was angry- angry with God, angry with Allen, angry even with myself for being angry. …
One day as I was pouring my working-woman woes out to Allen, he asked me something that got thinking. “Jill,” he said, “why have you given up? Maybe working full time is a temporary situation, and you’re spending all your time focused on how angry you are instead of how you can alter the situation.”
I began praying about what Allen had said, asking the Lord what His plan for my life was. After a few weeks of earnest praying about my situation, I was able to begin letting go of the bitterness that had invaded my heart. I told God that I was ready to accept whatever His plans for me were, even if that meant working full time.” pgs. 12-13
This book will help you identify the pros and cons of working from home, you’ll get a peak at what a Virtual Assistant does, Medical Transcription, Freelance Writing, Inventing, Multilevel Marketing and Direct Sales. You’ll get lists of what you may need at start-up: business supplies, necessities and essentials, even work-at-home fashion tips and so much more.
