I’m a Military Spouse who created the First All-Inclusive Self-Care Subscription Coaching platform specifically for MOMS! My Coaching platform will also include a feature to create curated tribes for mothers without them having to do anything but fill out a form- like “Mommy Matchmaking”. This tribe creation feature will connect Moms with like-minded women with similar interests and lifestyles based on the information provided on their survey form. I saw a need to create a company based on positive socialization amongst Moms that wouldn’t drain or waste their already limited time. Online dating has produced a lot of fruitful marriages, so “arranged” friendships amongst Mothers is something I am confident will be positive as well. I want to take as much “figuring it out” out of Motherhood as possible, and create a more “done-for-you” concierge Motherhood experience.
How do you balance entrepreneurship with motherhood?
WHEW! You have to celebrate even the smallest of wins because you don’t have the same disposable time or energy you once had before motherhood. Some days as a mom can be very taxing and exhausting, while some days you find yourself with a little more energy. Capitalizing on nap time, bed time, evenings, and portions of your weekend (if you have help) can go a long way. I practice the “one a day” concept. Every single day I ensure to complete at least ONE business task to intentionally sustain it or traject it forward.
What 3 steps helped you to become successful as a Mompreneur?
Any advice for moms who are considering a pivot into entrepreneurship right now:
Try to find what you’re good at and what you’re passionate about and journal how those two things intersect, a business foundation built on strength and passion is healthy. Control where your messaging is coming from by having positive people around you, listening to podcasts, and closing out negative “noise” on social media. Scale your finances, sometimes our visions are bigger than our pockets. Remember we still have little people depending on us so again small wins and gradual growth should be celebrated. When there’s an obstacle there is an opportunity!
“Down” time is a time to perfect your craft, gain new skills, and evaluate how you can do what you do UNLIKE everyone else (aka “the herd”). We all have weaknesses and whatever yours is, hire it out, or take small steps in accomplishing those “weakness”-related tasks via education to eventually DIY. Educate yourself on what you are not proficient in to translate it to another strength if you cannot hire it out. Your business is just like your babies once you birth it it’s not going to walk right away. There’s going to be long days and nights, learning curves, “trips to the ER” in your business but eventually it won’t be as bad and you’ll look onward to new challenges to overcome.
