The role of a mother in today’s society is ever shifting. It has continuously evolved into something different and perhaps, even greater than its previous meaning as us women strive to remove ourselves from the boxes we have been placed in. Over the years, there has been an emergence of the term “The Entrepreneur Mom” or “The Mompreneur” which describes a woman who is actively balancing the role of mother and entrepreneur. It is the idea that one can hustle and still have an active motherly presence in the lives of their children. It’s me.
While it can be hard to break down the singular image that society tends to have of mothers, being a mompreneur does come with its own share of difficulties. Oftentimes, mothers may feel as if they are under a microscope as they face constant criticism from others about how they carry out their traditionally expected roles.
In this episode, we discuss the topic of the “Entrepreneur Mom” and share our experiences while examining common themes that working moms often struggle with. Namely, being efficient in one’s time management and understanding the importance of removing one’s self-guilt. A mother that hustles will constantly find herself balancing between her family, children and work which leads her to often neglect the vital need for self-care. Or at least I do.
