Work-at-Home Women on the Rise: The Barefoot Executive Provides Expert Education, Coaching and Advice Through Website and Free Tele-seminar Series

Work-at-Home Women on the Rise: The Barefoot Executive Provides Expert Education, Coaching and Advice Through Website and Free T

SPRINGTOWN, Texas, March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on statistics offered by the United States Department of Labor, the women's "work at home" movement is on the rise. In fact, the government's last major Current Population Survey shows that the number of self-employed women increased 63 percent from 1975 to 1990. Due to various reasons, this is a trend that's only grown stronger in more recent years, according to Carrie Wilkerson, founder/owner of The Barefoot Executive (http://www.barefoot-executive.com/), the definitive resource for work-at-home women.

"Today's working woman often wants more professional freedom, flexibility and fulfillment," Wilkerson says. "Since many jobs aren't providing this, women are now turning to self-employment or home-based careers. And with the rising costs of fuel, daycare and working outside the home, women are even more compelled to make this career change. As someone who has done this successfully - concurrently with being a mother of four - I've now created a reputable business, the mission of which is helping other women achieve their work-at-home dreams."

The Barefoot Executive educates, coaches and advises work-at-home women (and those who want to be) as they achieve both their personal and professional goals. The website houses a comprehensive library packed with relevant information and business tools. It also offers services like weekly e-zines, forums, classes, seminars and more. Of note, The Barefoot Executive is currently hosting its free "Barefoot Summit" (http://www.barefootsummit.com/), a virtual mega-event providing invaluable tips and resources related to planning for a home-based career.

"Barefoot Summit is an excellent launching pad for women who've wanted a home-based career but didn't know where to start," Wilkerson says. "Over 8,000 women are participating nationwide in the tele-seminars, and this amazing turnout is partly because it's free, which is so helpful to women facing high business start-up costs. But our impressive lineup of presenting experts is also drawing this huge online audience. It's very exciting, and a true testimony to the fact that many women are now choosing to work at home."

"The Barefoot Success Summit" runs through April 2008. To register for a complimentary pass to the entire event, go to: http://www.barefootsummit.com/.
