If anyone knows what it means to work full-time, it’s a mom. Child-rearing women are the perfect fit for the mompreneur club
If anyone knows what it means to work full-time, it’s a mom.
Child-rearing women are the perfect fit for the mompreneur club since they already possess the basic skills needed to kick butt in the business world.
Time-management, creativity and working well under pressure are all essential skills for both motherhood and business. In the past, women were either full-time stay-at-home moms or they worked outside the home, not both. But now, stay-at-home moms are finding ways to pursue their passions: motherhood and entrepreneurship! This is a combined (and whopping!) 80+ hours a week dedicated to caring for the little ones and for a business.
So how can you manage it all? There are some moms who have learned the art of being successful. By successful, we mean moms who are truly enjoying rocking their little ones while rocking their business goals too. Yes, success is an art, and some mompreneurs have mastered this art by finding the perfect balance between juggling diaper bags and laptop cases.
In order to raise awareness and to celebrate women who are both mothers and entrepreneurs and to celebrate March – International Women’s Month and International Women’s Day, Women of Wearables are bringing together five incredible women who will share stories about their entrepreneurial journeys and how to balance motherhood and running a business.
Speakers include Colleen Wong, founder and CEO of TechSixtyFour, Lisa Seagroatt, founder and CEO of HR Fit For Purpose, Pragya Agarwal, social and creative entrepreneur, writer and a TEDx speaker and Zeleka Nadine Sutherland, founder and CEO of Zeleka Nadine Events. Moderated by – Marija Butkovic, founder and CEO of Women of Wearables.
