New US homeworking magazine for women

As reported on PR Newswire, Peensylvania-based Cutting Edge Media is to launch a new magazine, From Home, aimed at women homeworkers. According to Bridey Orth, editor-in-chief, of the new title: "From Home is a resource for women who want to blend their work and personal lives with a home business. The magazine will provide tools and strategies for starting a business, as well as real-life stories from successful women who are already working at home." First issue out in February 2007 and will have an initial print run of 50,000 bimonthly. Susan Miller, print media consultant for Cutting Edge Media, said: "Nearly 80 percent of home businesses and direct sales positions are held by women, but up to this point, there has been no publication that caters specifically to that group. From Home will reach out to stay-at-home moms, professionals, retirees and students - entrepreneurial women from nearly every background in the country." Cutting Edge already have experience in this field as they publish Home Business Connection magazine, mailed out to 200,000 people every month.

Look out in the UK for the launch of Enterprise Nation's magazine for homeworkers in January 2007 - I'll be posting on this important launch regularly over the coming weeks.
