The Mompreneur’s Survival Guide: Juggling Business and Baby Wipes

I’ve experienced imposter syndrome and so has pretty much every Mompreneur going after what she wants.

Laughter is the best medicine, especially when paired with a strong cup of coffee and a healthy dose of mom guilt.

Calling all Mompreneurs for your Mompreneur’s survival guide! You’re the CEO of your household, the master of multitasking, and the queen of spit-up stains. But let’s face it, being a mompreneur comes with its fair share of challenges, mishaps, and hilarious moments.

So, grab your coffee (reheated for the fifth time), take a break from that spreadsheet (if the baby allows), and let’s share a laugh or ten about the joys of MomLife mixed with the chaos of entrepreneurship.

The Mompreneur’s Morning Ritual:

Forget about sunrise yoga and green smoothies. As a mompreneur, your morning routine involves a frantic search for lost pacifiers, negotiating with a toddler over breakfast choices (spoiler alert: it’s always Cheerios), and trying to respond to urgent emails while simultaneously wiping a tiny human’s bottom. Who needs caffeine when you’ve got adrenaline pumping through your veins?

Business Meetings, Mom Style:

Ever tried to seal a business deal while your toddler decides it’s the perfect time to stage a dramatic meltdown in the background? Welcome to the world of mompreneurship, where conference calls often turn into impromptu storytelling sessions featuring your little one’s latest adventures with the family pet.

The Power of Mom Guilt:

You know you’re a mompreneur when you feel guilty for both working too much and not spending enough time with your kids—all within the same five-minute timespan. Who needs a personal trainer when you’ve got mom guilt keeping you on your toes?

The ‘Mom Brain’ Chronicles:

Ah, the infamous mom brain strikes again! From forgetting your client’s name mid-conversation to accidentally packing your kid’s lunch in your briefcase, mom brain is the ultimate equalizer in the world of entrepreneurship. Embrace the chaos, mama’s—it’s all part of the journey.

The Art of Stealthy Snacking:

As a mompreneur, you’ve mastered the fine art of stealthy snacking. Whether you’re hiding in the pantry, sneaking chocolate chips between Zoom calls, or negotiating peace treaties with your toddler over a bag of veggie straws, one thing’s for sure: snacks are a mompreneur’s best friend.

The ‘Mom Uniform’ Dilemma:

Who needs power suits and pencil skirts when you’ve got the classic mom uniform of yoga pants and a stained T-shirt? It’s called fashion, darling—look it up.

The Perils of Home Office Interruptions:

Forget about water cooler gossip—mompreneurs have their own brand of office interruptions to contend with. From impromptu puppet shows to emergency diaper changes, your home office is a revolving door of adorable chaos.

The Myth of Work-Life Balance:

Work-life balance? Ha! As a mompreneur, you’ve come to terms with the fact that balance is just a myth perpetuated by well-rested people without kids. The balance, as founder Susan claims, is acutally in the chaos! Embrace the chaos, embrace the mess, and remember: you’re doing the best you can—try not to sweat the small stuff.

The ‘Mompreneur Tax Deduction’:

If only you could claim ‘toddler wrangling’ and ‘diaper changing’ as legitimate business expenses on your tax return. Sadly, the IRS isn’t quite as understanding as your fellow mompreneurs.

The Joy of Celebrating Small Victories:

From landing a new client to successfully bribing your toddler into taking a nap, as a mompreneur, you know that every victory—no matter how small—is worth celebrating.

So, raise a sippy cup to yourself, fellow mompreneur, and keep rocking that messy bun and can-do attitude, especially now that you read this survival guide!

Remember, laughter is the best medicine. Especially when paired with a strong cup of coffee and a healthy dose of mom guilt. Now, go forth and conquer, one spit-up stain at a time!

Lastly, send the guilt fairy to go visit a man!
