The Edwardses are recognized as pioneers in the “working from home” field. With the emergence of eBooks, they have shifted their focus from print to digital books and media. As a result of their donation, the library now boasts well-stocked shelves with resources for those using the Center.
The books donated cover such topics as business planning, marketing, finance, and how to start specific businesses. Included among the books are those authored by the Edwardses, whose work includes Working From Home, the first commercially published book about how to work from home, The Best Home Businesses for People 50+, Finding Your Perfect Work, Getting Business to Come To You, Home-Based Business for Dummies, Secrets of Self-Employment, and their most recent, Middle Class Lifeboat.
“The SBDC is most grateful for the Edwardses’ donation of such a valuable and wonderful library to our Business Resource Center,” said Bret O’Connor, director of the SBDC in Long Beach. “The donation will enable us to provide the resources our clients need.”
