Motherhood is arguably one of the most important, challenging and rewarding responsibilities on the planet. Bringing a child into the world - loving, guiding, teaching, and shaping one’s offspring into an empathetic, conscientious, respectful, and hardworking mature being – can surely become a mother’s legacy. And yet, some moms want to do more. They yearn to have it all. They are harvesting an idea, they boast an innate business savvy, and they possess a strong desire to bring their clever concept to life. They want to be both mother and entrepreneur.
According to www.themompreneur.com, a mompreneur is defined as:
“a multi-tasking woman who can balance both the stresses of running a business as an entrepreneur, and the time-consuming duties of motherhood, all at the same time! Whether it’s a mompreneur who has a bricks-and-mortar business (physical location) or an an online or direct marketing business… we truly feel that any woman who juggles their own business and family at the same time is a mompreneur at heart!”
There are many mothers out there who fit this bill. They proudly wear their assorted hats, including that of entrepreneur. And the amazingly supportive resource, known simply as ‘Mompreneur,’ is a welcoming community of thousands of moms/entrepreneurs who share their stories, their shoulders, and their many business tips and tools.
And they celebrate their successes.
