I have been reading one of my womens’ magazines – a publication I’ve subscribed to since the early 1990s.  Every month offers a selection of articles, mostly confined to fashion, cookery, health and well being and gardening.  I have noticed however that the last year has incorporaed more and more articles on self improvement and getting going on running a business or similar.  In a couple of old copies of the magazine from different years, there is nothing remotely connected with running businesses or getting to the top of a work tree and hitting glass ceilings.  The emphasis in those days was keeping a household organised and making sure hot stodgey nosh hit the table when everyone got home.

How different things are these days – if there is no room in the house for running a business, then an office in the garden is definitely worth considering -there are some fantastic sites online who can give info on the subject.
