Being able to have it all often feels like a massive dream for us all. Yet, in reality, it can be quite hard to achieve. Maybe you spend a lot of years working for other people? Maybe you have dreams of launching your own business when your children are small?
It can be hard to do this when you’ve got other priorities. But when the timing is right, it can be perfect.
When you’re able to be in a position to create your own empire and have a family – it’s a great feeling. Yet, it’s also one of those things where you can feel a little alone. You’re often working solo and you have the house and your family to take care of too. It can be hard. But it will always be worth it.
So, wouldn’t it be nice to do all of that AND feel connected? Although you don’t always have colleagues as a Mompreneur, you can do it in a roundabout way.
When you decide to connect with other businesswomen and mothers just like you, it can change your life. Nothing’s better than raising each other up and supporting each other on this journey. Here’s how you can do it.
1. Share Experiences
To start with, it’s just nice to be able to just share your experiences together. Working for yourself and running a business can be tough. It’s not something that you necessarily want to have to do alone. When you have friends that get it, it’s nice to talk about things with people that understand.
2. Create a Business Group
Next up, you may find that it’s a really great idea for you to think about creating some kind of business group together. It’s nice to be able to get your brains together, share ideas, grow together, and really make sure that you’re taking everything you’re doing to the next level.
It’s really not always that easy to elevate alone – it can be so hard. But when you’re in a group growing together, you may find it’s much easier.
3. Support Each Other Socially
Now, as a solo business owner, it’s likely that you’re going to be relying on social media quite heavily to be able to promote what you do. And it’s really great if you have the reach. But that isn’t always the case. And so, it’s nice for you to be able to support each other on social media.
Whether that’s sharing each other’s work on Instagram stories or sharing accounts on Twitter – whatever suits your niche. It’s important to promote what you all do.
4. Be Open & Honest
It’s really easy to live in a rose-tinted world. We all do it from time to time. But pretending that things are perfect when they aren’t only ever harms you. When you want to raise each other up, it’s nice for you to just be honest with each other about your experiences so you can help each other too.
5. Celebrate Each Other’s Achievement
When you work alone and something great happens, you often want to share it with others and be able to celebrate. So when you have a group of mompreneurs that you can communicate with, it’s nice to be able to celebrate each other’s achievements as if they are your own.
6. Be a Family
Another thing that you might find is really important, is the idea of acting like a family. When you’re a mompreneur, it’s so important to have a support network around you.
And when you don’t always have colleagues, it’s nice to be able to turn to people that are like you and have them for support.
This is so important when it comes to celebrating different milestones. Whether you’re throwing a birthday party or need tips for hosting a great gender reveal party you should be able to count on each other. It’s also nice to be able to do these things for each other two as if you’re a little family.
7. Buy From Each Other
Finally, another option that you have is to make sure that you’re supporting each other by buying from each other. If you need to hire an expert or you’re looking to purchase a product, why not look to shop local and buy from another mompreneur instead?
You don’t always have to opt for big brands. By actually purchasing from and recommending other female business owners and experts, you’re doing everything you can to really lift each other up.
