Motherhood and Entrepreneurship: A Rollercoaster Ride with 5 Kids
Posted on January 30, 2023
Being a mom is hard enough but add running a small business to the mix and you’ve got yourself a wild ride. As a mom of five kids, I can tell you first-hand that juggling motherhood and entrepreneurship is no easy feat. But, with a little bit of humor, a lot of coffee, and a whole lot of love, it can be done.
First things first, let’s talk about the chaos. When you’re a small business owner, you’re always on the go, answering emails, making calls, and trying to keep everything running smoothly. And then you’ve got five kids who have a never-ending list of needs and wants. It’s a constant tug-of-war between “Mom, can you help me with my homework?” and “Mom, can you sign this?” But, the truth is, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Being a mom and an entrepreneur has taught me some valuable lessons that I wouldn’t have learned otherwise. Like time management. When you’ve got a baby on your hip and a deadline to meet, you learn how to get stuff done. Fast. And then there’s multitasking. I can fold laundry and answer emails like a boss. It’s a superpower I never knew I needed.
But the real magic happens when I bring my kids into the mix. They’ve taught me so much about life and business. They’ve taught me to be creative, to think outside the box, and to never give up. They’ve taught me the value of hard work, and most importantly, they’ve taught me the importance of having fun.
And that’s what this whole motherhood and entrepreneurship thing is all about. It’s about finding the balance, about making time for the things that matter, and about never losing sight of what’s important. It’s about making memories, and most importantly, it’s about having fun.
So, if you’re a mom and an entrepreneur, keep going. It’s not easy, but it’s so worth it. And if you’re thinking about starting a business, do it. The ride is wild, but the rewards are worth it. Just remember to laugh, to love, and to always make time for the things that matter.
And always, always make time for a good cup of coffee. Trust me, you’ll need it.
