In the past, being a mom and a woman in business would be considered mutually exclusive jobs. It is no longer the case, as women are rapidly becoming the primary engine of growth in entrepreneurship in many parts of the world.
How can women manage to pour energy into both and expect to be successful and happy? In a piece for her blog, co-owner of Think Global Institute and mother of a 9-month-old, Amy Scerra has 5 ways to accomplish this.
Amy acknowledges upfront that she hasn’t experienced the deep end of the pool yet, where balancing the demands of running a growing business collides with middle school talent shows, sports, or scouting trips.
There is a long way to go yet for that, but already the challenges of juggling parenthood and career have taught her there are “crucial aspects to enjoying life” while doing both.
She reminds you about important but often neglected things to make sure of like getting enough sleep, and asking for help for when you need it, which she believes are important keys to staying fresh, balanced, and happy in the life you have chosen as a mother and busy entrepreneur.
Her blog is short and sweet, but very insightful in terms of what is really important in life and the mindset of happiness and gratitude for what entrepreneurship has afforded you, and for the help, you have received along the way.
I have run a business now for 17 years. The business I chose allowed me to stay involved with the kids as they grew up while enjoying a fulfilling professional life. Since it is primarily on weekends, a juggling act has never been too much of a factor.
I never had a nanny because I didn’t need or want one. My business gave me the flexibility I needed to stay a mom and support my family
If that way of life appeals to you, I offer “The Ultimate Course” that most of the leg work and offers a blueprint for starting and operating a business like mine.
The Princess Tea Party business is fun, flexible, and lucrative. Now, with nearly 20 years of experience, I am helping other women achieve the same joy and satisfaction I have experienced by offering my “Business in a Box.” It is the exact road map I followed to start and operate a successful business made easy for those interested in the business for themselves. No prior business experience is necessary, and no franchise fees. Learn More Here
