What’s Your Purpose for Being a Mompreneur?

What’s your purpose in being a mompreneur? It’s important to take a step back and remember what’s driving you to do what you do, what gives meaning to how you spend your time. With a clear sense of purpose, you’re much more likely to enjoy your work and build a business that thrives.

But do you remember what drove you to start your business?

Since you’re a mompreneur, I know it involved more than just a desire to make money. Let’s face it: running a start-up company is usually not a big money-making endeavor for the first few years. It’s easy to think that if your goal is to make money, you could more easily do that (on a consistent basis, no less) working for someone else.

Most of the mom entrepreneurs I talk with tell me it’s not about the money (although we have nothing against making lots of money). Instead, we decide to start a business based on our passion, our talents, our expertise and our purpose.

Part of my purpose as the Mom Biz Coach is to help other women solve a problem I struggled with myself: how to do work I love without compromising my commitment to my family.

Tune in to the podcast below to hear more about purpose and how it fits with and ultimately shapes successful mompreneur businesses.

  1. thanks Lara – I love this little reminder of what got me started. It was the passion for my “idea”…although, I had a few little thoughts of going in a different direction, I am happy that I pursued my original idea (although it is hard). YOU helped me find that decision — thanks!!
    I plan to listen to podcast today, but this was a great way to start my day. Rachel

  2. Totally agree…it’s about doing what you love and what you’re great at and then getting paid because you’ve added value to someone else. Great post Lara.
