Sarah Edwards, who had previously worked for the federal Head Start program, began working at home after being advised by a doctor to change her lifestyle while suffering a stress-related illness.
She attended the University of Kansas, earning a Master of Social Work degree.
Paul Edwards, an attorney, began working at home after becoming disillusioned with the commute to his office.
They then began researching the burgeoning work-at-home movement.
They moved to writing books including Working from Home, Making Money With Your Computer at Home, and The Best Home Businesses You Can Buy. They also appeared in magazines, radio, and television.
Paul and Sarah Edwards, gurus of the trend, were among the first to recognize the benefits of working from home.
Sarah resolved to open a home office after a stress-related kidney infection landed her in the hospital.
“I was trying to be a supermom,” said Edwards, who at the time was working with a regional Head Start program. “I loved my career and I loved my family, but the doctor said I had to change my lifestyle.”
After getting a master’s degree in social work, she opened a psychotherapy practice in her living room. Her husband, Paul, followed suit a few years later.
Fed up with office politics, he started his own political consulting firm and set up an office in downtown Kansas City.
But each day he would leave the house later and later, until he finally realized he could work just as well from a spare bedroom and save substantially on his overhead.
“It took several years for our relatives to take us seriously,” Sarah Edwards said. Being taken seriously is no longer a problem for them.
They gradually began spending less time on their original businesses and more time acting as consultants to the growing legion of home businesses.
In the Edwardses’ current home, a stylish condominium, just over 20% of the space is given over to their business– including a downstairs bedroom converted to an office, a former hot tub room now filled with filing cabinets, and a loft that is home to both their desks.
