Martha Woodard (cq), at her home office in Laredo, Texas, US, Thursday, Dec. 10, 2009. Martha and her husband John Woodard were forced to move their office from the apartment complex they own and manage, to their home in order to rent out the original space to make more money. Because of the slumping economy, John is looking into getting another job to make ends meet. Martha, a native Spanish speaker from Mexico, is learning English, in part, to help take over managing their apartment business and be able to answer phone calls in English. ..PHOTOS/ MATT NAGER,
