What I Love About Being a Mompreneur (That I Didn’t Use To)

Being a mompreneur has its fair share of challenges. Juggling between work and family life can be tough, especially when you’re working (and momming) from home. But despite the challenges, there are some things about being a mompreneur that I love now that I didn’t use to.

Today, I want to share with you some of the things that I now love about being a mompreneur (that I originally didn’t).

What I Love About Being a Mompreneur (That I Didn’t Use To)

LACK OF TIME

Sounds crazy, right? But as a mompreneur, I’ve learned to manage my time so much better. I have a much clearer understanding of what’s important to me, and what I can’t compromise on — and that’s everything for a pressure prompted person like me!

I’ve learned to let go of the little things that used to consume my day, like endless scrolling on social media. Now, I dedicate my time to growing my business, investing in myself, and spending quality time with my family. It’s not always easy, but having less (more focused) work time has helped me better prioritize in so many ways.

DISTRACTIONS

Distractions can be a huge challenge when you’re working from home. From the laundry basket that keeps calling your name to the new Netflix releases calling out to be binged.

But being a mompreneur has taught me how to deal with distractions, and turn them into advantages. Every time I’m pulled away from my work, I use the opportunity to take a break, spend some time with my kiddo, and come back to work, feeling refreshed and creative.

MULTITASKING

We’re often told that multitasking is bad for us — and it certainly can be. But as a mompreneur, it’s a simple reality. Multitasking allows me to manage my time in a more efficient way by doing two things at once, without sacrificing quality.

For instance, I can finish some simple work tasks while my son plays in his playroom. Or I can record a reel while he plays at the park. I can take a call from a client while we’re on a walk. It’s not always easy to balance everything, but the ability to multitask has been a great asset as a mompreneur.

What also helps is that so many of my clients also value a work-life balance. It doesn’t bother them when my son pops in on our Zoom calls, or they hear him saying hello when we’re driving in the car.

FLEXIBILITY

I’ve been working from home for over twelve years, so I’ve known the value of the flexibility that it brings. Being a mompreneur has changed the way that looks a bit. For instance, I can’t always take the day off when my son is sick.

I’ve learned, however, to ebb and flow better. To let go of expectations and simply be more laid back with our schedule. Learning how to get ahead with work and let go of a bit of control have been major (life-changing) lessons I’ve learned.

PERSONAL GROWTH

Finally, being a mompreneur has allowed me to grow personally. I recently shared with my Mom that the thing I was least prepared for in parenting is the amount of re-parenting you end up doing. You learn where your triggers are and how to handle them in a healthier way.

I’ve learned to navigate uncertainty, overcome challenges, and face my fears head-on. The journey has been challenging — and will continue to be — but the rewards have been worth it.

Through it all, I’ve become more resilient, resourceful, and confident in my abilities…because there’s something empowering about running a business while raising a family, and the lessons I’ve learned along the way will stay with me forever.


Being a mompreneur isn’t always easy, but it’s certainly rewarding. I love the freedom to choose my own hours, the chance to grow in unexpected ways, and the support of a community of like-minded women. Being a mompreneur is a journey of self-discovery, and I’m grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned so far.

I hope this post has encouraged you to embrace the journey of motherhood and mompreneurship. Being a mompreneur is challenging, but it’s also a wonderful adventure that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world.
