Redbook Magazine Features HireMyMom

Hot Mama - Netpreneur Lesley Spencer Pyle is the kind of business idea that's so timely and practical that, naturally, it took a mom to think it up. The site, which connects companies looking to outsource projects with work-from-home moms who are eager for part-time work, was launched last May by Lesley Spencer Pyle, a mother of four in Spring, TX.

"I got pregnant right after I started my first job doing PR for a golf school," says Pyle. "I hated being away from my baby, but my employer wasn't open to flextime, so I quit." Since her family was dependent on Pyle's income, she began scrambling for freelance work.

"I knew there were other moms out there in the same position - I thought we could really learn from each other," Pyle says. In 1995, she founded the online community Home-Based Working Moms ( which has evolved into a mini-empire, including a home-based business directory, a start-your-own-business kit, and a newsletter. Pyle loved connecting with moms online and figured employers might want to access this vast pool of talent. Enter For a small fee, moms who do everything from graphic design to sales can get listings for hundreds of long- and short-term projects that can be completed from the comfort of their kitchen table - uh, we mean home office.
