Item description for The Home Office Parent: Raising Kids and Profits Under One Roof by Jennifer Kalita...

While working from home and raising your children at the same time seemed like a good idea initially, you've found the reality of the two roles nearly impossible to manage. You may have even given up on the idea that you can do both well and, at this point, would settle for handling one or the other effectively. But what if you could be the best home office parent on the block? To help you live a life in business and in balance, this home office parenting how-to guide tackles those issues that no entrepreneur or telecommuter thoroughly confronts before diving in, and empowers you with the success strategies critical to restoring your sanity and your profit margin.

Kids may not come with an instruction manual, but now home office parenting does! Successful Mompreneur Jennifer Kalita hits one out of the park with this humorous, thoughtful, soulful manual for anyone who wants practical, immediate strategies for how to realistically integrate a business into your home and your life as a parent. Funny and insightful, The Home Office Parent is more than just a playbook for the joyful co-mingling of laptops and lollipops, it is a business tool that shares the secrets to success for entrepreneurs who refuse to trade in their lives for their work. If you have a home office or kids or both, this book is a must-read! Finally, someone tells us how to sustain happy kids and happy clients - the REAL bottom line!

Seal the Deal: The Essential Mindsets for Growing Your Professional Services Business
A Must-Read For Any Home-Based Parent   Jul 19, 2007
Jennifer Kalita truly delivers in her easy-to-read, insightful, informative and funny book. If you work at home with your kids under foot, Jennifer will show you the way to keep your sanity (and your clients). This quick-read gives you tangible strategies to implement right away... and will also make you laugh at loud. It's as if she sat in my home for a week and wrote the book especially for me. I know you'll feel the same way, too.
The perfect guide for parents who work from home  May 29, 2007
Most books written by home office parents aren't FOR home office parents. Sure, you catch a glimpse of their struggles as they wipe away peanut butter puke from their keyboard while typing the next line. You get a vague sense of their concurrent chaos, but you never get the full-blown picture or a recipe for how they overcome their condition to move beyond survival to sustainable success. Lucky for us, Jennifer Kalita does.

This brilliant writer provides home office parents with a practical guide to home office parenthood. Her tone is real, her advice true. I found myself acknowledged within the first pages of her book. Being a home-based businesswoman with small children, I was on the writer's side from the moment I cracked the cover. Her witty, smart writing reeled me in and I was hers the moment she claimed home office parenting is a synergistic lifestyle assembled with tears, temporary insanity, mind-numbing tedium and a full-blown case of mutual respect. It is the basis of the entire operation.

My favorite lines include:

"Check your superman/superwoman complex at the door, and accept this truth [that you cannot be a perfect parent and perfect business person simultaneously]."

"You need to watch a movie and eat a bag of pretzels sometimes..." As simple as it sounds, we all need to hear this every now and then.

For anyone who wants to shout out "Just because I'm home doesn't mean I'm available," will find themselves in this book. Even better, they will find a way to improve their best practices to return to the joy borne of their decision to work from home in the first place. I highly recommend this book to anyone who's ever thought working from home would be a cakewalk.
