From changing their children’s diapers to designing an effective business plan, these mompreneurs are teaching the world how it’s done and nothing is impossible if one has sheer dedication and passion towards transforming their entrepreneurial dreams into reality.
Starting a business is not at all a small feat, especially when you are a mother. The process requires a lot of money along with time and energy for establishing a successful business. A mother who decides to follow her entrepreneurial dream has to balance the equally demanding role of a parent and a business owner both, which is not an easy task.
The growing popularity of entrepreneurship in India is somehow causing the mothers to invade the Indian business industry with unique and different business ideas. From changing their children’s diapers to designing an effective business plan, these mompreneurs are teaching the world how it’s done and nothing is impossible if one has sheer dedication and passion towards transforming their entrepreneurial dreams into reality.
ShilpaHak, owner of Earthy Tones says, “Mompreneurs believe being a leader by staying authentic as a person. Business and brand startup is something of a career change, which is at the same time very challenging as well as promising. It requires hard work as shepreneurs and mompreneurs in business sectors are going to make new and tough decisions.”
But, what are the reasons why mompreneurs are believed to achieve great success within the Indian business ecosystem? Mentioned below are some reasons for the same.
Enhanced Learning Quotient
Mothers are believed to develop an enhanced and strong learning quotient than anyone else. Every single day is new learning for them as mothers tend to unlearn what they already knew, looking at the same thing from new and different angles. This is one major reason why mompreneurs are believed to achieve great success while running and handling businesses of their own.
ArunaRao, who is a CTO at Kotak Mahindra Bank, is one great example of a mother who is doing successively well at the workplace.
Mompreneurs Strongly Believe in their Ideas
Mothers, who are willing to enter the entrepreneurial world with their own business, prioritise their money, time, and effort quite superbly and effectively. They understand the importance and value of all the above-mentioned components deeply, which eventually help them in believing that what they are pursuing has a future.
“Other entrepreneurs can sacrifice sleep and their health, and put all their focus into the business. With kids, you can't do that. Determine what you can do at this stage of your life. As your kids and your business grow, your life and work won't have to be sacrificed," says Zeenat Ehsan, co-founder, Bohemia Italian Restaurant.
Mompreneurs are Tanked up with Fire and Business Ideas
Pregnancy is usually a time when women are asked to relax. While many women spend a lot of their time relaxing, aspiring mompreneurs utilise this time by re-evaluating life, thinking fresh and creative; planning begins to happen right during the maternity period.
This phase helps women in clearing their concept towards their startup along with other components like community building and socio-economic goal driven agendas.
