This book is for the bummed out, burned out, and stressed out professional, stay–at–home parent, or retiring boomer who dreams of a home–based job or business, but doesn t know how to make that dream a reality.
Unlike the many "change–your–life" books that promise much and deliver little Undress4Success provides expert, practical advice about: 1) what home–based jobs are available, what talents they require, what they pay, who s hiring, and how to land one; 2) how to use the Web to search for work–at–home jobs and business opportunities without being scammed; 3) how to turn professional talents into a freelance business; and 4) how to convince an employer to adopt a telecommuting program.
Based on interviews with dozens of employers, home–based employees, successful freelancers, and leading telework researchers, this book shows readers the way home.

Kate and Tom are the ′guiding hands′ for self–reliant control of your future success from home!

We were delighted when Kate and Tom proposed Undress For Success and more even thrilled by the manuscript they delivered. If you want to work from home as an employee (telecommuter), freelancer, or home business owner and are as tired as we were of the many work at home books that are long on hype and short on help, this book is for you.
