As we approach the last week of February we are saying goodbye to our monthly valentines theme for February but before we do I have a belated small valentines day gift from me to you.
A Mumpreneur – A woman who sets up and runs her own business in addition to caring for her young child or children.
Running a business, I think is hard enough for anybody, but throw in raising a family and looking after a home on top of that is on another level hard.
As a 'mumpreneur' I have been through many highs and lows, with lots of different challenges to face, I have very often come home feeling on top of the world but equally come home in tears wondering if I should instead find a job.
We very often start a business we desire with lots of hard work, commitment, passion and with the idea in mind we are doing the best for our children whilst being at home. It gives us instant flexibility and as a mum of young children there is no greater gift. Being a mum boss, working from home it means we don't have to worry about school pick-ups, school holidays, sick days and the rest.
Instead what we do feel (and not realising what we are letting ourselves in for) is an overwhelming amount of guilt, stress, financial pressures, excessive work hours, and tiresome days. All of these can sometimes create a build-up of resentment aimed at our businesses.
I am going to share with you a few of my own experiences and best advice I can give as a fellow mumpreneur. By no means am I implying I have all the answers as I am pretty sure I have many more bumps in the road to overcome myself.
Before my final goodbyes for this month… I thought I would leave you with a hint of what is to come for March 2017, We will of course be celebrating mothers day in style with some information and advice regarding maternity allowance.
