About the author:
Karen Fusco, a mom with 2 grown daughters, owns Creative Solutions, where she is a Systems Consultant who designs and writes custom software, and Creative Properties to manage her real estate holdings. She is also a Busy Mom Expert.
Pat Brill, a mom with a grown son and daughter, owns Prime Bookkeeping, where she provides small businesses with bookkeeping and human resources services and she founded The Women's Group.
Karen and Pat launched the second half of their working lives in 2005 becoming Internet Entrepreneurs. As Baby Boomers, they're on a path of enlightenment and growth for themselves, and are looking to give back - not only to other savvy Boomers, but to their children's generation also. Karen's detail and design flair along with Pat's strong business background and writing skills make a great combination that has allowed them to partner successfully in many projects.
Together they founded Boomers in Motion, LLC, the parent company for all of their internet ventures. In 2007, they co-authored and published their first e-book, "Busy Moms: The Heart and Soul of a Home" (www.busymombook.com), a wonderful idea-filled collection that helps women take care of themselves in all their varied roles: busy mom, spouse, worker, sister, daughter, friend and partner.
Karen and Pat have been active members of the very successful Women's Group since 1997 and have seen it grow into a cohesive unit that has a life of its own. And for the greater women's community, they started a newsletter that has grown into their blog, www.WomensGroupBusyBites.com, where they come together with women from around the world to discuss women's groups and women's issues.
