There’s a new word out there, it’s called ‘mompreneurs’. Oxford Dictionaries defines it as a woman who sets up and runs her own business in addition to caring for her young child or children. You can see an example of a mompreneur in Proverbs 31. This woman does it all. Just what are some traits of a successful mompreneur?
- They’re great multitaskers. This should come as no shock. How many times as a mom have you helped with homework, given advice on a tough problem, and broken up an argument all while fixing supper? Running a business and running a home simultaneously should be a piece of cake for them. They know how to strike a balance.
- They know what people need and how to give it to them. They’re used to identifying problems and finding solutions at home. As a result, their ideas for business opportunities are generally sound ones.
- They’re passionate. They believe in what they do. Many times their business sprang from a need that they identified in their own sphere. They saw that something was missing and they found a way to fill that need. They want to help others.
