"the" book is finally here...


i've been checking my mailbox everyday with hopes that i will receive my copy of Country Living's latest book on mom's starting their own businesses....and it finally is here!




i was fascinated that there is such a 'calling' if you will, for moms to try to do it all...whether married and juggling that along with kids, they were all spurned on to take on such a difficult undertaking, opening their own business... you can follow each women's path of trials, tribulations and triumphs as they are trying to find the perfect dance to balance all the hats that they are wearing... if you or anyone that you love is thinking of doing just that, it's a must read....you will gather good advice, avoid some mistakes perhaps and in the end keep your sense of humor through one of the biggest undertakings that you may take on...for those of you who would like a good read of 'brave' moms out there who are shaking things up a bit, you will enjoy watching the different ways women have done this and i'm sure get lots of laughs along the way comparing it to your own life as a mom...




for those closest to me you will see the perfect description of me....jumping off the cliff to see what happens, and that pretty much sums up one of the common denominators among all the featured women, bravery is needed; and if you don't feel brave, PRETEND!

I guess you will want to put a twitter icon to your blog. I just bookmarked this blog, however I must make it by hand. Just my 2 cents.

thanks anonymous! there is a twitter, but it's under each blog update, not as easy, but i think that was the only place that it was offered for me to place it... i'll double check though...diane
