Let’s face it. Being an entrepreneur isn’t always easy. Throw in caring for one or more small humans who require 24/7 attention, and things get a whole lot more complicated. Strong, intelligent and highly capable women juggling building a business with their second job, one with gruelling hours, little positive reinforcement that’s impossible to quit.
But for many mums, the rewards of being your own boss far outweigh the challenges. Flexibility, practicality, independence and doing something you’re passionate about are just some of the reasons why research from personal care company Kimberly-Clark shows 70 percent of mums have considered making the switch from employed to employer.
With technology and innovation figuratively and literally at our fingertips, there’s never been a better time to turn an idea into a solution than now.
