And Thank you for visiting Inspiring Mompreneurs.
A little about me, Lauren Kinghorn
I work from home in our little corner of paradise, beautiful Cape Town, South Africa.
I’m happily married and blessed to have a lovely bonus daughter who’s now 17 and a lively son, who is 7-years-old.
I’ve had a few great jobs in my life, but found I always gravitated towards having my own business because I have the heart of an entrepreneur.
My biggest struggle has been moving from solopreneur to entrepreneur – hiring a team. Sound familiar?
In my 20’s
I ran a successful massage therapy practice for about 10 years…until I burnt out because I was working such long hours.
- how to listen to my clients.
- how to make people feel really good about themselves.
- that you’ll never make millions being paid by the hour (and it’s exhausting to try)
In my 30’s
I was into network marketing and sales (mostly nutritional supplements) and I did a bit of freelance journalism.
- how to leverage my time and money.
- there’s no such thing as a get rich quick scheme – if it looks too good to be true, it generally is.
- how to find great leaders and bring out their awesomeness
Now I’m 40 something
And I’m thriving as a Mom and a Digital Entrepreneur. I’ve created 3 niche websites and I’m busy with a 4th one at the moment.

I’ve finally found a solution to my solopreneur struggle. Instead of hiring a team of full-time staff, I send out tasks to freelancers, amazing Moms I trust, who also work from home.
One constant in my life is that I’ve always surrounded myself with lots of girlfriends.
I’m an out-and-out extrovert, super friendly and when I meet you, I turn the conversation to deeper stuff as soon as I can.
I want to know how I can help you, what I can contribute that will make your life better or happier or fuller.
And I bring that energy to this website and to the interviews I do with Mompreneurs.
What I do really well
- Make you and your brand SHINE.
- I see the positives in people and help them see it too.
- I’m great at promoting people, especially those with amazing causes.
- If you have a great mission and vision, I want to broadcast it.
- If you have a message for the world, I want to spread the word.
- If you’re Mommying while building your own business, I want to share your trials, your triumphs and your success secrets. You can see the 40+ interviews I’ve conducted here.
- And if I can help you by sharing some of the golden nuggets I’ve picked up along the way, fab.
- Because I know what a mammoth task it is to balance being a Mom and an Entrepreneur.
