New Word: Pregomommypreneur 

Definition: An entrepreneur who is a mommy and pregnant.

Definition: An entrepreneur who is a mommy and pregnant.

Usage: Scarcely had I estimated the trials of a pregomommypreneur when life threw a curve ball at me.
Pregopreneur is a word my husband threw at me to describe my state of being as a pregnant entrepreneur. I reminded him, that he is forgetting that I also have a toddler, so really I am a Pregomommypreneur.
The newly coined word is used in jest to catch the challenges of being an entrepreneur (enough by itself), having a child, and being pregnant.

The year 2010 has been an interesting year to say the least. My toddler has decided that she is two and half going on thirteen. Everything results in an argument. She wants to do everything by herself, including choosing clothes, brushing her teeth, having a bath – everything!

Nature Certified is growing, and we are continually exploring new avenues to show case our products. This holiday season, we ran a retail store to promote our brand in a local mall. It was a great opportunity to present the product to the community. However, if you’ve never ran a retail store (as I hadn’t), you will quickly learn that it is one of the most personally challenging experiences. When the whole world takes a holiday, that is the time for you to run full steam. There are no holidays, you work long hours, and it is always about having your best foot forward. It is also tremendously exciting and an excellent way to observe the customer interact with your products. It is like having a dedicated focus group.
We also continued to work on getting into other retail stores, and growing the brand.

Now combine that with being seven months pregnant, and you have a prefect storm.  I try not to think that my little baby boy came in one month early because of that. We rang in the New Year with the cries of a small but healthy baby.

Each day I try to be the best mother and entrepreneur that I can be. I know being a mother is the most important thing to me. At the same time being an entrepreneur defines who I am. I thrive on it, and I do not judge myself for my ambition.

Can a mommypreneur be it all?  I think it’s possible, or at least worth a try!

PS. I am also staking claims to the terms momtive or mommycutive - for a mother who is a corporate executive; mommypreneur - A mother who is an entrepreneur. The challenges are quite similar. Stay tuned for more on this topic.
