This podcast was extremely helpful. Keep up the great work.
I am not a mom yet however, it is probably not that far off in my future. I am working to get a home based business up and running before life changes in that direction.
What do you recommend for someone who only has about $200 a month to spend on marketing/getting the word out and making her webpage more SEO friendly.
