Secrets to Thriving as a Mom and Entrepreneur

Secrets to Thriving as a Mom and Entrepreneur

If you want something done, you should give it to a busy mom. I’m typically not one to subscribe to clichés, but that statement is absolutely accurate.

Many women question themselves, unsure that they have what it takes to handle being a mom and running a business. I can tell you from personal experience that the answer is yes!

As a mother of four girls, I began my entrepreneurial journey in the nonprofit and event management sectors. I juggled the responsibilities of growing and running a business, which brought with it major functions such as black-tie events, golf tournaments, boat rendezvous, and holiday parties, with the typical “mom” stuff: dance practice, soccer games, trick-or-treating, book reports, and birthday parties.

I’m now an entrepreneur in a different field, and my daughters are grown. I’ve faced hardship, but I’ve gained strength from the support of my family and friends. 

Being a mom is the hardest job in the world. Try being a mom and an entrepreneur, and your job suddenly requires you to be superwoman. It’s not easy, but with the right attitude and the proper guidance and support, it’s definitely worth the ride. 

Here’s some of my advice for other entrepreneur moms starting this glorious journey:
