Are you a Mompreneur? A business owner trying to balance the role and motherhood and the role of entrepreneur. Raising a family while building a business is no easy task and requires a special combination of endurance, patience, planning and business skills. Here 5 are books that every mompreneur should read to help her pursue her dreams and goals while momming.
- The Mom Selfcare Planner. This may not be what you would expect to find at the top of a list for Momprenuers but selfcare is paramount to maintaining raising a family while running a business. As the saying goes, “If momma’s not happy, nobody’s happy.” So creating a plan of intentional selfcare will keep mom happy and her family and business will reap the benefits.
- Drop the Ball: Achieving More by Doing Less. Yes you read that right… In order to do more, you have to let some things go. This is so difficult for so many moms. Moms tend to be doers even if that means we have to do it all ourselves. But the truth is we can’t do it all by ourselves and we have to learn to let go and drop the ball on somethings.
- The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM). With kids, bedtime time can zap whatever energy you had left from the day right out of you. Many of us wakeup at 1am only to find that we fell asleep in our kids bed fully clothed. So that leaves the mornings to help us set the tone for a successful day.
- The 12 Week Year: Get More Done in 12 Weeks than Others Do in 12 Months. Moms’ to-do lists are long enough as it is and running a business just doubles and sometimes triples that list. It can all be quite overwhelming. The key is to ensure that you have a productive and practical plan in place and focusing in on 12 weeks a time makes all of it seem that much more possible and makes you feel that much less stressed.
- I Know How She Does It: How Successful Women Make the Most of Their Time. How many times have you looked at another mom and wondered how does she get it all done? This book shows how successful women who are also moms manage it all from working, to exercising to spending time with their family. You get a peak at actual schedules and hear the stories behind the schedules.
