About the Author: Mary M. Byers successfully juggles both a freelance corporate writing and speaking business and her responsibilities as a wife and mother of two school-aged children. She is the author of The Mother Load: How to Meet Your Own Needs While Caring for Your Family and How to Say No . . . And Live to Tell about It.

My Review: When I got this book, I thought it would have nothing to say to me. I was wrong.

Just thinking about women who spend their days at home with their children and working, convicted me about how much time I waste during the day. I was encouraged to think again about keeping the house and raising my kids as a job. I know it is my calling in this season of my life.

That being said, I found the book incredibly interesting and well-written. Working at home isn't as easy as it sounds, and this book provides lots of helpful, specific advice. If I were working at home, I'm sure that it would be an excellent resource and source of encouragement. If you know a work-at-home mom (at-home CEO, I mean) this book would be a wonderful gift. In fact, as soon as I finish this review, I'm passing my copy along to a mom I know who could use some encouragement.
