SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, February 19, 2001: It is no surprise that the state of Utah, where 70% of the population is Mormon, also bolsters the highest percent of women nation-wide who have home-based businesses. From crafts to stamps and more, the enterprising women are finding creative outlets and independence while supporting the Mormon value system of large families and stay-at-home mothering. With the built-in network already in place, marketing of home-based products is done with ease. Supported by their peers and the community at large many Mormon women are earning respectable incomes. Stampin Up, a Utah company selling rubber stamps and stationery, was started by two sisters and in 1999 produced a whopping US$100 million in gross revenues.
