Are you a self-employed woman, or would you like to be a businesswoman, perhaps running a company out of your home? If so, I’d like to recommend a very good book to you. The book is; “101 Best Home-Based Businesses for Women – Everything You Need to Know about Getting Started on the Road to Success” by Priscilla Y. Huff, 1995.
In this book the author does not use a lot of hype although the title suggests so. The information in this book is actually quite down to earth, and I really couldn’t find anything wrong about what she was saying as I read it. If you are a woman looking to start a business, or if you already own a small home-based business, perhaps, you are selling something on the Internet, then I can very much recommend this book to you.
