 'WORK-AT-HOME GURUS' PAUL & SARAH EDWARDS
 OFFER TIPS ON HOME OFFICE START UP
 LOS ANGELES, March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever thought about making the transition to working from home? With the current economy claiming another 2,200 jobs everyday, it just might be an alternative worth serious consideration for middle managers who have often dreamed of being their own bosses.
 Paul and Sarah Edwards, husband and wife home business consultants and co-authors of "The Making It On Your Own Library," offer timely tips on everything from self-marketing techniques to setting up a productive home office. The Edwardses recommend, "Let the latest technology be your 'staff in a box.' Look for a 'staff' such as Microsoft's Solution Series software, which are easy to learn and use." Some other tips from the gurus:
 -- Develop and maintain a list of potential client contacts for direct mail efforts. Works for Windows offers new users the power to set up a database, write letters and keep a spreadsheet and charts to track follow-up and results.
 -- Create awareness of business and update contacts of new services by producing a newsletter, brochures and letterhead with Publisher, a full-featured, entry-level desktop publishing program.
 -- Adopt a method of financial organization that saves valuable time with an easy-to-use financial package such as Microsoft Money, designed to give an error-free snapshot of one's finances.
 -- Above all, take yourself seriously and others will too.
 Paul and Sarah Edwards began operating their businesses from 1974. Their first best selling book, "Working From Home," was released in 1976 by Jeremy P. Tarcher Inc., Los Angeles. Other books include: "Making It On Your Own," "The Best Home Businesses For The '90s" and "Getting Business To Come To You.
