Hey there! Welcome back to another episode of the show. In this episode, we’re talking all about things you need as a mom entrepreneur. 

To be honest, you don’t need a ton of things as a mom entrepreneur, or as an entrepreneur in general. I think we can all start our businesses pretty bare bones and then add on later but I wanted to share the bare minimum things you need to thrive as a mom entrepreneur. 

In this episode, I didn’t want to sit down and talk about the tools you need because I think those are based upon personal preference, budget, etc. but I wanted to touch on the practical things you need to have as a mom entrepreneur. 

  • A plan //

First up, you need a plan. It doesn’t need to be a fully hashed out plan but you need something to go off of. Think about what you want your offers to be, how often you want to work, where you want to show up, etc. 

  • Flexibility //

As a mom with a business, flexibility is an absolute must. Even if you have some sort of childcare for your kids, things can come up. I know when my son first started daycare back in the summer of 2021 there was a 6 month period that was totally unpredictable for me in business because he seemed to always be getting sick and I’d have to keep him home from school for days at a time. 

  • Determination //

When you’ve got littles, it can be really easy to put yourself and your career ambitions on the back burner but I want to encourage you to keep pushing forward even when it feels hard. You can totally be a mom and have a business at the same time. It’s 100% possible. 

  • Patience //

Another key thing you need as a mom entrepreneur is patience. There are going to be some days where the last thing you want to do is work on your business because you are just so spent from the day but you need to be patient with yourself. I know there were plenty of days where my son would only take a 30 minute nap and I just felt hopeless because I had so much work I needed to do but just remember that it’s just a season. 

Next week, we’re going to be talking about why moms in business need to take maternity leave so if you’re currently expecting or plan to get pregnant soon then you won’t want to miss this episode.
