Allie Harrod is ready for a new career, but the challenges she faces seem to be rising as fast as her credit card balance: none of her pre-baby clothes fit, her mother-in-law has decided to move in, and to top it off her husband only leaves the couch to go help his beautiful--and single--coworker with her home repairs. What's a working mother to do?What will she give up to have it all?

Allie Harrod is ready for a new career. She doesn't want to go back to full time work and risk missing her baby's first smile. But she does want to contribute to the family income, and a home-based business seems like the perfect solution.
