Lauren Novita sent in this great article about mom's working. The point of the article is that there is a huge pool of women who are super smart and can make a big impact in your business, and they're relatively cheap. You just need to be a little flexible.
I saw this work with my own, baby eyes. My mom started working with Elegant Clutter when my brother and I were super young. She found the perfect business for her, bought in at the ground floor and the rest is small business history.
I'm sure there are a lot of other really cool stories like this out there. Send them in.
