How many of you Moms in business have come across the Mompreneur stigma of not being taken seriously in the business world? The stigma that the reason why you started your business was because you were bored. The stigma that your business is not a substantial one and that it's just considered a hobby.

Does being a Mompreneur and caring for your children make you less of a business owner?

In my book it does not. I believe that being a Mom in business means that you have TWO jobs! Job #1 being a Mom and Job #2 an entrepreneur. I read an interesting article by Nataly Kogan: 'The "Mommy Stigma": Well Alive In The Business World'. In this article she talks about leaving a corporate career to start her own business to create an online network for Moms called Work It, Mom! When she went out to lunch with a friend who was supportive in her career change of pursuing entrepreneurship, he suddenly was dissatisfied when he learned she was starting a "mommy thing". This supports the stigma of a business not being treated with the same respect as another "non- mommy thing".

Lets look at this from another angle. Does being a Mompreneur mean that you are neglecting your children?

Recently I have heard both sides. I have come across women who don't believe in starting a business because their place is in the home and that's it. These Moms believe that having a business means you are taking away your attention and focus from your children. This is the view of the anti-Mompreneur.

So which view is right?

I want to hear your thoughts?? Comment below and let me know your views on this subject or if you have experienced the Mompreneur Stigma yourself.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
