Homeschooling while holding a job?

This is not an official GE post, but more of a request for a column I'm writing for USA Today on homeschooling. I would love to talk with a parent who homeschooled a child while holding a job (working from home/self-employed is OK, as long as it was a "real" reasonable money-making enterprise). Please let me know if you'd be willing to be interviewed. Thanks!

Hi, I'm Annie. Not sure if I'm quite what you are looking for. My husband and I run our small computer company from home, and I homeschool our two oldest sons (7 and 5). We basically provide all the tech support small professional offices need without the cost of hiring a full time tech staff. My husband goes to the various offices to the computer work. I handle the business side of things from home. If you want to see more about the homeschooling side of things, look at www.learnateveryturn.com. If we are what you are looking for, feel free to contact me.

Annie- I would love to talk to you. Blogger doesn't record your email for me, and it isn't readily available from your website (I guessed at one possible address). Can you please email me directly at lvanderkam at yahoo dot com? Thanks so much.

My husband and I are homeschooling a 10yo while both working full time. It's actually been much easier than I anticipated. Feel free to contact me if you want. mmulder at triad.rr.com .

Just started homeschooling, while trying to negotiate with the school to get my 13 y.o. son tutored/reimbursement for online CTY courses (or similar).

I'm a freelance copywriter and sole support for the family. It's not easy, and I'd REALLY appreciate a support group of single parents doing schooling on their own.

Once you've made contact with others, would it be possible for you to ask to share their email...as I'd like to form a group.
