Being a mom and successful in business, be that your own business or working in general, is fast becoming more possible for many. There is the introduction of childcare options and less of a stigma attached to leaving the children. So it’s now more possible than ever to achieve your dreams. So what makes a successful mompreneur? I thought I would explore some of the main attributes every mompreneur should have in spades:
Belief in your ability
Any person who wants to be successful in the workplace, be that as a freelancer, employed or setting up your own business needs belief. Most importantly belief in your ability. Many entrepreneurs will automatically possess this attribute. Whereas others will need a little persuasion. But having belief that you can succeed in what you put your mind to is so vital. If you need a little inspiration no how belief can get you far then you might want to read up on Richard Brasser who is a CEO. You can check out the interview here.
Passion to succeed
While you need to have belief you also need passion. Passion in what you are doing every single day. As a mom it’s hard enough with the mom guilt to leave your children everyday. You always feel like you are slacking in one department of your life. So having passion for what you do will help you get up each day and carry on doing what you are doing.
Faith that anything is possible
Having faith is something people can lose quite easily. It’s one of those things that you can have minute and lose it in an instant. If you struggle with faith an excellent way to be more in tune with your thoughts is to have a vision board. It will enable you to visualize your success and continue to keep the faith that what you want to achieve will happen.
Ability in your chosen field
Of course, it’s all well in good telling yourself anything is possible. But we don’t live in fairy land. We need to have ability in what we are doing. Thankfully, the things we tend to have passion and faith in is often a skill we have, or knowledge of a particular business area. So the ability to succeed should never be a problem for a mompreneur. Your biggest down fall is losing the faith and passion. So ensure you keep your ability up to scratch.
A digital knowledge to push your business forward
Finally, we are living in a digital age and most things are done through the internet. Be that advertising your service or business or just showcasing your skills and attributes. Having a decent knowledge of social media is important to ensure your business or service takes off. It’s not just about posting it’s about advertising in the best possible way to ensure you get a good reach. You may also want to consider a decent website to keep things on track. Many websites have a blog option which is another way of showcasing your skills.
Finally, don’t forget you rock at what you do!
