You Know You’re a Mompreneur When…

Wondering what a “mompreneur” is? Sure, it’s one of those trendy made-up buzz words that gets overused. But I think it accurately describes the mom who runs a business while raising a family. So, let’s have a little fun and determine what it means to be a mompreneuer!

You Know You’re a Mompreneur When…

    1. Your office has a drawer full of crayons (and you’ve been known to use them when the kids are asleep!).
    2. You routinely fold laundry on your lunch hour.
    3. Your single most important business tool is the mute button on your phone.
    4. Your corporate working friends think you play on Facebook all day and the stay-at-home moms in your neighborhood think you’re a social recluse.
    5. You make more money working on your own terms than you ever did in the Corporate environment – and you can’t believe how much fun you’re having doing it!
    6. Your husband has to put a lock on your computer after 10 pm just so gets to spend some time with you.
    7. You get more done before 3 pm than most people accomplish all week.
    8. The school bus driver is on your speed dial along with the UPS driver.
    9. Your idea of a Girls Getaway involves a seminar, conference or a cruise that you can write off for networking purposes.
    10. You wish Skype had never been invented because now your clients can see how you really look on “office days!”
    11. You consider Summer Camp a business expense.
    12. You have more brilliant ideas than you could possibly have time to implement – but that doesn’t stop you from talking about them!
    13. You’re the only mom at soccer practice listening to a teleseminar on your iPod.
    14. You don’t believe in slave labor, but you’ve been known to bribe your kids with ice cream if they seal envelopes or clean out your office storage closet.
    15. Your definition of relaxing is having only one conversation at a time.
    16. You have absolutely, positively no time to be sick!
    17. You can walk out of the grocery store with three new clients.
    18. You find business inspiration in the strangest of places – like reading Dr. Seuss or watching a Disney movie.
    19. You don’t ever want to ask anyone for permission for a day off from work. Ever.
    20. You love your business, your family and your life, and you treasure each day as a blessing!

Now it’s your turn! Fill in the blank: You know you’re a mompreneur when….
