The responsibilities of mothers have evolved overtime to include a whole lot more aside the everyday motherhood duties at home.
Mothers are currently managing very sucessful businesses aside the motherhood duties of taking care of the home and children.
A sucessful mompreneur is one who is able to balance between all these activities at home and work and can still walk in the heels confidently not looking all stressed out.
It isnt an easy task it requires a lot of help from family especially the husband, prioritization of activities and making use of every little time.
For a Mompreneur time is very precious and is of great essence.
The Qualities of a Mompreneur can be drawn from the story of the virtuous wife in the Prov. 31:10 -31 verse:
As it says
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her
I discovered some qualities that will make a mom successful both with her house hold duties and managing a business in this verse .
1. Focus and positivity
2. Wisdom from God and should be a critical thinker.
3. It is essential to also have a skill aside the education which is also important.
These skills have nurtured some mothers into business owners, fashion designers, Make up artists, Event planners and many more.
What skills are you planning on acquiring as a mother to be, or as a practicing mother now. There are lots of opportunities for us in Ghana and a wide untapped market for business.
Starting a business on your own as a mother helps you to also dedicate a lot of time to family duties, in any case we work to ensure the family is well taken care of.
Ask yourself how often do yu get to spend quality time with your kids as a #mompreneur or working mother. It is essential and important.
Be part of the children’s life as they grow.
That is one great quality of a successful Mompreneur
