Hello! Welcome! And Thank you for visiting Inspiring Mompreneurs.

Lauren Kinghorn, Founder of Inspiring Mompreneurs with Benjamin (left) and Skyler (centre).

This is Us. I’m the one on the Right. 🙂

A little about me, Lauren Kinghorn aka…

Mom Blogger in the Mother City

I work from home in our little corner of paradise, Cape Town, South Africa.

I’m happily married and blessed to have a lovely bonus daughter, Skyler, who’s now 13 and a lively son, Benjamin, who just turned 4.

Fun fact about us:

Skyler and I share a birthday. (13th March if you’d like to send gifts). 😉Inspiring Mompreneurs Testimonial Casey Bunn

I’ve had a few great jobs in my life, but found I always gravitated towards having my own business.

In my 20’s

I ran a successful massage therapy practice until I burnt out.

I learned

  • 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 cosmetics) with a bit of freelance journalism.

I learned

      • 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 people and bring out their awesomeness

Now I’m 40 something

I’ve taken to Mommying and blogging.I’ll tell you what I’ve learned when I’m 50.  Deal?

One thing that’s been with me throughout my life, is that I’ve always surrounded myself with lots of girlfriends.

LOTS!

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 really know you.

I see strangers as friends I haven’t met yet.

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, your success secrets.
            • And if I can help you along the way by sharing some of mine, all the better.
            • Because I know what a mammoth task it is to balance being a Mom and an Entrepreneur.

    Hi,

    I was searching out something on Google when I encountered your post “Keeping The Work-Life Balance in Check as a Business Owner” and this actually landed me on your website inspiringmompreneurs.com. I read with great enthusiasm from which I also got enlightened on specific tips you discussed in it. I also took time to check through some other interesting articles among many on your blog. I was impressed and I had loved to be part of the great work. Really, such great articles are hard to come by.

    Hey Lauren! Just wanna say that I really like your site! It’s very informative while inspiring at the same time! My girlfriend hates going to work everyday and I can tell it’s starting to take a toll on her after all these years.
    How exactly do you make money from blogging on the internet? Maybe I’ll show this to her

      Thanks Gabe. Great question.  My primary form of monetization is affiliate programs though I am considering creating my own info products as well. So far most of the money I’ve made has been on Fiverr. I’ve also made a bit from a couple of side hustles: website testing for Userlytics and missions as a Field Agent. This is the first month I’m testing advertising on my site. May publish my first income report next month.

    From one mother to another, I can understand why you joined Wealthy Affiliates. It’s a really good environment. I speak for myself. I see you have a lovely family. However, I am very cautious of writing about myself on my site. Having a four year old like yourself, I would too.

      Hi Linda, I understand your hesitance. What information do you feel I should not have divulged?

    Hi Lauren!

    Nice to meet you!
    You have a beautiful family!
    I am a mother to 3 boys. Ages 9,5 and nearly 3!
    Being a working mum is hard because you miss out on so much of your kids growing up. I think working online is a brilliant idea to stay at home more!
    I love the 40 day challenge too!
    I look forward to reading more of your posts!
    Regards
    Hailey
