From Mom to Mompreneur: How Your Skills Can Help You Start a Business
- You Know How to Handle Bad Days
Every mom has bad days to deal with. You’re exhausted, the kids won’t listen and everything seems to be going wrong. You know this doesn’t make you a bad mom, just like you know that things will likely be better tomorrow. This resiliency will help you in the world of business. Operating a company can be like riding a roller coaster, and unless you know how to remain determined during the tough times, you will likely fail.
- You Have Awesome Negotiation Skills
Moms have high standards and great negotiation skills. You don’t settle for less when it comes to the well-being of your kids, and you won’t accept a bad offer when it comes to business dealings. When running a business, there are many expenses, and being able to negotiate the best deals will prove crucial for success. Luckily, after you’ve held your ground in an argument with a whiny six-year-old, there isn’t much you can’t do!
- You Know How to Get Creative
Being a mompreneur means being creative. Even if you aren’t an artistic person, you’ll still need to think outside the box to ensure your business stands out from the rest. Moms can create ideas and systems that work for their unique families. You probably do this without even realizing it, and you’ll be amazed at how your creative skills benefit you in business.
