Become a successful super woman
Being a mompreneur (mom entrepreneur) is one of the most challenging jobs in the world
Being a mompreneur (mom entrepreneur) is one of the most challenging jobs in the world. It requires balancing two very demanding roles: a mom and an entrepreneur.
Being a mompreneur might require more effort than being a career woman, but it gives you more flexibility and control over your schedule. As you can earn while taking care of your family, the fruits of your labor will be sweeter too.
Here are a few tips to be a successful mompreneur aka superwoman:
Focus on what you know and love
A smart business idea blended with something that you love and know is the best formula for a successful venture. It is easier to offer products or services that have provided solutions for you, based on your personal experience.
Many successful mompreneur have started a business selling baby-related items, such as breastfeeding aids and baby care supplies. Apart from your expertise in that field, you get to interact with and help fellow moms and moms-to-be.
Good planning and time management skills
Being a mompreneur requires that you function at maximum efficiency, as you cannot afford wasted time and effort. Having a structured daily schedule will help you keep track of all your tasks and to allot your time based on the importance of each one. Be realistic when planning your day though. It is advisable to set aside a free one hour per day. That one hour will help you catch up on your lag and allow you some breathing space.
Allow time for yourself
No matter how busy you are, do not forget to find time for yourself. Do not feel guilty about taking a break once in a while- it will not make you a bad mom. On the contrary, having some "me" time to recharge, refresh and feel more beautiful will make you better as a mom and an entrepreneur. Take time to have a relaxing bath, to go out or to be pampered at the parlor or spa- you deserve it!
Even Superwoman needs a team to help her, or else, she will burn out. Your family is your number one source of support. If you have a team working with you, that will also help you divide the stress in your business. You might also want to connect with other mompreneur or fellow moms. Keep in touch with your friends who have their own kids to share your experiences and concerns with. There are also many online mom groups or community parent organizations you can take part in.
