Look around and tell me, how many MomPreneurs started their first business after they had their children? How many MomPreneurs feel passionate about what they do? How many MomPreneurs have succeeded and live fulfilling lives? Why is that?
1 – Flexibility
Having your own business means creating your own schedule, this translates into having the flexibility to take a day off when your children are sick; or a doctor’s appointment; or when they have a school event; or a ballet class. You name it.
2 – Working Hours
Having your own business allows you to work the number of hours that are available to your personal circumstances.
When your children are younger you may just have 3 or 4 hours per day, and not even 5 days per week. As your kids grow, and you find yourself with more time to invest in your business, you can adjust your strategy.
3 – Finance
You may not have the time or the resources to work for another company, but that doesn’t mean that you can not help to the family finances by adding some extra income.
Having your own business offers a great financial support.
4 – Time to Enjoy Your Children
There is nothing like seeing your children grow up, and you can see them grow by the second. Moms want to be there and want to enjoy and capture those memories.
Having your own business means organizing your own schedule so you can spend more time with your children.
5 – Search for Personal Fulfillment
This is a big one; at least this was MY big one. Becoming a mother is a wonderful experience. Feeling the touch of you baby’s skin cannot be compared to anything. But you find yourself with a lot of time to think, and to revisit a lot of the choices you’ve made in your life. You find that you are not the person you used to be anymore. Your identity has evolved. Your needs have evolved. You need to feed your soul.
Having your own business allows you to customize your work environment; it allows you grow on a different level.
Thank you for your time.
