Being a career woman with a family can be busy in today's world.
From taking care of the children to doing laundry to walking the dog, it may seem like there are never enough hours in a day. A woman may feel like she needs an extra hand.
Women attended the 2008 Lakes Area Women's Expo Saturday at the Brainerd Area Civic Center may have found the answer to find more time from one of the more than 100 exhibits.
At exhibit booth No. 90, Extra Wife Enterprises "No Rings Attached" in Brainerd made an appearance. Susan Schroer, the owner of the business, said families are so busy now and are pressed for time. So last fall, Schroer opened a business where she helps families with cooking, cleaning, laundry and errands.

Schroer can do pretty much anything a family needs, including picking up the groceries, making a meal and having the table set, all before the family gets home.
"It is my job to relieve your stress," said Schroer. "I can help families with these tasks so they can spend more quality time together."
Schroer had a yellow sign at her booth that read, "Need a wife?" that caught the eyes of people at the expo.
Wally Barrett of Brainerd was one of them.
"I like that no rings attached," said Barrett with a laugh, who came to the expo with his wife, Sylvia. The couple enjoy coming to the expo to see what's new.
