When you think success you may think high-powered, suit-and-tie-wearing entrepreneur. However, there is one type of entrepreneur who often gets overlooked despite having incredible smarts and an uncanny ability to take on more tasks than most workers can handle.
Mompreneurs represent a talented and motivated workforce. Think about it, how many people have the commitment, the discipline and the stamina to run a household and a business at the same time? Mompreneurs are resourceful multi-taskers who have a lot to teach new entrepreneurs about the capacity so many of us have to get things done.
They also represent the buying power of a very influential demographic. Studies show that women make most of the buying decisions in the household. Mompreneurs have the influence, the audience and the network to bring attention to brands that want to reach that important decision-making audience.
Perhaps one of the best things about mompreneurs is that they have all of this talent and experience and yet they are willing to share that knowledge. While many entrepreneurs guard their success secrets like coveted treasure and hide their mistakes, mompreneurs are more than happy to explain how they’ve achieved so much, what they’ve learned, tips on how to replicate their success and what mistakes they’ve made along the way.
In celebration of the resilient spirit, the drive and the unity of mompreneurs here are my suggestions on the Top 50 Mompreneurs to follow (and learn from) in 2014:
