A warm and special thank you to those women who submitted their video entry for the 2013 Mom Entrepreneur of the Year contest. Although we could not accept all videos received into our final top 10, even though we really wanted to, please know that each and every one of you is such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your amazing journey with us.
If you are interested in learning how you can enter our 2014 Mom Entrepreneur of the Year contest, please read the details below.
What is a mom entrepreneur?
A mom entrepreneur is a woman of many, many hats. She gracefully juggles the needs of her business with the needs of her family. You can usually find her on a conference call while making a nutritious dinner for her family, or tucking her kiddos into bed, then heading back to her home office to finalize a proposal. She splits her time between client meetings and projects, and enjoys the freedom and flexibility of taking her children to a picnic in the park during the day.
A mom entrepreneur is a special kind of woman. She is a natural-born multi-tasker. She’s patient, works extremely well under pressure, handles her workload with ease and somehow manages to get it all done, and do it successfully, with children and a household to look after.
If this sounds like you, we want to know! Tell us about your business and why you love being a mom entrepreneur. Be original. Be creative. For instance, tell us about your typical day. What motivates and inspires you? How did you get to this point in your life right now? What obstacles have you overcome? How do you give back to your local community? Who are your proudest supporters?
