Book Review: Minding Your Own Business - A Common Sense Guide to Home Management and Industry

One of the things on my list of 10 Things To Do In February is to read Minding Your Own Business by Raymond and Dorothy Moore. And this week I finished it.

 I enjoyed reading it again and found myself inspired and encouraged as I absorbed the Moore's ideas and advice on managing the home and a home business (or two). It was helpful to read the stories included of other families who have successfully woven a family business into the fabric of their day to day lives.

This book has two parts and sixteen chapters.

Part One: How to Manage Your Home
1. One Man's Family
2. How to Coach Young Financiers
3. Values: How Much Are You Worth?
4. The Wasteful Generation
5. Recycling: Happily Making New Out of Old
6. They Who Serve: The Twice Blessed
7. Organization: Just a Little Bit at a Time

Part Two: Home Industries
8: The Miracle of Work: How Hands Build the Head and the Heart
9. The C-I Magic: Why Cottage Industries Are Special
10. How Others Do It
11. A Few Home Businesses
12. Finding Money for Your Industry
13. When the Handicapped Become Assets
14. Preparing for Employment: Home Industries and Apprenticeships
15. Something for Single Parents, Too
16. Considering the Law's Demands

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in home management and/or home industry. Even if you don't agree with everything in the book there is a lot of great food for thought.
