Mompreneur is a new name created to describe a multi-tasking mother who can balance both the stresses of running a home-based business as an entrepreneur, and the time-consuming duties of motherhood at the same time.
Being a mompreneur makes you a great mom:-
As a mompreneur raising a child, you set an example for your child. You have an opportunity to inspire your child to go after their goals, both personal and professional. You get to teach them by example about the importance of following your passion, being self sufficient, and that with hard work, patience and determination, anything is possible.
“I want my daughter to know that motherhood and entrepreneurship do not have to stand at odds to one another. Being a mompreneur is a blessing – I am able to do something I am passionate about, while also having a fruitful relationship with my child and family.”
The truth is that starting a business is very difficult, with new challenges every day. Add to that being a wife and mother of two kids and trying to balance everything and do a good job at all of those things, it is nearly impossible.
You will forget doing stuff, mess up things, miss your schedules but being a mompreneur, while there are so many challenges, it is still so much fun!
It will definitely bring your family closer together and give you common goals.
“As a mom of two, I knew I wanted to be around to be a part of my children’s lives and not traveling for work and doing the daily 9 to 5 grind… I love being able to create my own work schedule so I can be there for my children when they need me. I’m able to work when they are in school and again in the evenings after bedtime. I also love seeing something that started with a typed business plan flourish into a real, living thing that I am so proud of.”
You can set an example to your children that you can create your world; you can be successful, a CEO—you can be anything you want to be—with grit, hard work and determination. Being a mompreneur is a blessing.
As a mompreneur, I am learning how to be more flexible and to accept interruptions without getting flustered. Being the boss, my schedule is flexible – I can choose when to work. I can drop the kids at school, participate in activities and be available for them. The trade off is that when I have deliverables, I stay up until the wee hours finishing my work or communicating with my team located in other parts of the world.
