Love a Mompreneur!

Have you heard that phrase yet? I keep seeing it pop up over and over again and I love it.

Mompreneur. A Mom. Running her own business is a Mompreneur.

Here is the deal. Mom's balance a LOT. No matter what. I am thankful I have a unique perspective as a mom who has been a full time working mom who worked outside the home 40+ hours a week AND as a Work at Home Mom. When Max was a baby I worked full time as an event coordinator and he went to daycare. The first 18 months we did pretty well, I love working. I loved Max. I loved his daycare. Eventually I stopped loving my job and God started changing my heart. My business at the time allowed me to jump back to a part time job and work part time from home. 4 years later I am still doing that. So like I said, we Mom's certainly know how to juggle. So mom's who juggle their own businesses on top of everything else, schools, kids, house cleaning, cooking, meal planning, doctors appointments, schedules, pets, travel, sick babies, church, friends, family, volunteering, well those Mom's rock.

What if this holiday season you supported another Mom and her business? Instead of browsing Wal-mart or Target or the mall (ugh who wants to go to the mall?) you looked around and supported a Mompreneur that you know? Your business MATTERS to us. You aren't just another customer to us, you are THE customer. Your business isn't a drop  in a giant bucket. Your business matters here.

Being a Mompreneur isn't easy but it's so worth it! So this year, look around and support your favorite Mompreneurs! I promise they appreciate you and your money isn't going into a corporate black hole. It's going to a family, christmas presents, new shoes, dinner on a table, piano lessons, dance shoes or a tank of gas. Go love a Mompreneur this year.
