Fortune Small Business Makeover features a Flexible Executive
By Patricia B. Gray July 16, 2009

 DOUGLASVILLE, GA. (Fortune Small Business) -- As cadets at West Point, Jonathan Hartley and Allan Sicat spent four years studying the art of war and learning how to lead troops into battle. More than a decade later they're using that training to sell blue gingham baby blankets and pink polka-dot crib sheets.  Well, business is combat -- even at Carousel Designs, tucked into this sweetly rural outpost west of Atlanta. In 2007 Hartley bought his parents' nursery-supply company, invested about $1 million from the sale of an earlier business and asked Sicat to help him transform the small operation into a national online retailer of premium and custom baby bedding. Hartley's parents, who are retired, started the company in 1988.

What had if you could hire the brainpower of a senior-level, former Fortune 500 executive at a fraction of the cost of a permanent hire or a consulting firm? That's the idea behind temporary executives hired to tackle problems rather than fill positions. Such an alternative work arrangement helps companies that need expertise but can't afford the high overhead of a full-time leader. It also can be professionally satisfying for executives who want a flexible career that enables them to use their expertise. And agencies that bring the two together meet a need in the marketplace and reap financial rewards. Read More>>

How Stay-At Home Moms are Filling an Executive Niche
By Sue Shellenberger April 30, 2008

Lots of employers would like to be able to hire cheap, temporary teams of seasoned pros with experience managing $2 billion investment portfolios, running ad campaigns or earning Ph.D.s in neuroscience.

But few know the secret to finding temps of that caliber: Look on playgrounds and at PTA meetings.

The decision among some highly educated women to stay home with children is sparking a countertrend: The rise of the mommy "SWAT team." The acronym, for "smart women with available time," is one mother's label for all-mom teams assembled quickly through networking and staffing firms to handle crash projects. Employers get lots of voltage, cheap, while the women get a skills update and a taste of the professional challenges they miss.
