Juggling a home, a family and a business isn’t easy. You have tons of questions, lots of doubts, plenty of plans and a heart filled with hope and dreams. You don’t know who to trust, ask and turn to when tossing and turning in bed pondering over a business decision. You wonder if your non-business friends would understand the guilt that plagues you each time you cancel a play date.
Yes, it isn’t easy being a mompreneur.
What you need is a community that understands your concerns, helps you find answers to your questions and inspires you to pursue your dreams.
How a Community Can Boost Your Business
Great things happen when people come together. It is no different when a group of mom business owners hang out together, brainstorming ideas, making plans, giving gentle but constructive criticism and helping you succeed.
* Acts as your sounding board. Should you have doubts about your latest product or pricing your services, ask your community and you’ll get tons of answers.
* Understands your life. Being mom business owners, all of you face pretty much the same challenges and can, therefore, understand each other better. Feel bad about your cluttered house, vent it out with other moms. They’ll understand.
* Inspires you to follow your dreams. Sensibly. Nearly all mom business owners are driven by a sense of purpose, a passion to create a product that will help other mothers. Your community will help you follow those dreams without getting burnt in the process. You can learn from their experiences and create your own business plan.
