Leslie Truex truly knows how to combine comfort with making a living. For nearly two decades, she has been working at home, often in her pajamas, and helping others do the same. Before finding success working at home, she ran into many of the same problems other work-at-home wannabes encounter, but she persevered and eventually found success running a business from home.
What hasn't Leslie done? She has freelanced as a school program coordinator, adoption social worker, b2b sales woman and real estate agent. She has participated in direct sales and started a business through a biz op. In recent years, she has worked as a freelance writer for several Internet companies, as well as a freelance web designer. She has been running her own website, WorkAtHomeSuccess.com, and information product business since 1998. Today, her focus is on freelance writing, book authorship, and managing her own publishing companies.
She is the author of The Work-At-Home Success Bible, Digital Writer Success: Make a Living Blogging, Freelance Writing and Publishing Online, and several other books related to working at home and career design. She has been a guest expert in the topics of Home Business, Telecommuting, and How to Get What You Want in Life at About.com’s AllExperts since 2000.
She has spoken and conducted seminars at Virginia Festival of the Book, Piedmont Virginia Community College and Charlottesville/Albemarle Chamber of Commerce. She has appeared as a work-at-home expert on The Daily Buzz, CNN.com, Redbook, Women's World, Today's Parent and in a host of other media outlets.
Leslie has a BA in Psychology from Willamette University in Salem, Oregon and an MSW from California State University, Sacramento. Everything else she's learned through seminars, books, and trial and error.
I am the epitome of "if I can do it, you can do it," when it comes to starting and running a home business. I'm organizationally challenged, I flit from one idea to the next, and I like to sleep a lot. But when you can design a career that you enjoy that also fits with the life you want to lead, work becomes fun and easy, which is the secret to my success.
I originally started my home business ventures to be home with my children. Today they're in college and I could probably go back to a traditional job, but I don't want to. I love being able to do what I want, when I want and how I want. I pursue businesses that I enjoy, and when I don't enjoy them anymore, I replace them with something else, which I guess makes me a serial entrepreneur.
What I love best about home business is that it's easier and more affordable than ever to get started. My goal is to help you and anyone else looking for fun and flexibility in their careers to start a successful home business.
