From Mom to Mompreneur The 10 Essential Traits My Kids Taught Me about Running a Business

Everything I know about being a Mompreneur I learned from raising my Kids As a business owner I am sure you have experienced times when you felt overwhelmed, flustered, frustrated, desperate, confused and out of your league. Some of you may have wanted to give up. You may have thought that you were in over your head. This was not the reason you got into business. You pictured freedom to choose how you spent your time, being your own boss and having time for yourself, but this is not the reality. I am going to show you that you can have all those things if you just look back at what you learned from being a parent. I have been thinking about how I learned to run a business, where I drew the wisdom from, what experiences helped me along the way and what drives me to continue even when things don´t seem to be working out. Every time I get the same answer; I learned it from being a...

Are you a Slave to your Blackberry or Smart Phone?

Are you a Slave to your Blackberry or Smart Phone?

Entrepreneurs today are becoming slaves to their Blackberries, smartphones and their computers. We have all seen it, people that are constantly checking to see if they have missed an important email, message or update. It can be disrupting not only to your workday, productivity and projects but also to your family. The compulsion to communicate constantly is a huge problem with the advancement of technology. Emails stream in, messages pile up and task begin to overwhelm even the most organized entrepreneurs. We can now check our messages on the ski hill, at the restaurant and at the gym. We find ourselves distracted while driving when we hear the familiar sound of the notification from our phones. It is becoming ridiculous. When most of us were growing up people ran businesses and households without the constant interruption of technology. Most of these messages and notifications are useless and only waist your time.

OMS the What is it, How do you get it and how do you fix it. The mompreneurs worst nightmare.

OMS is a serious condition that afflicts many mompreneurs worldwide. It is non-discriminate of race, social status and culture.  It can hit early in the life of their business or not until later on when their business is well established  devastating the mompreneur and putting a wrench in the growth of her business  by creating  havoc in her personal life. OMS can affect every aspect of the mompreneurs life and if not treated can grow to even more serious problems like mental breakdown, the breakdown of a marriage and social isolation from friends and family and serious health problems. This is a syndrome that I discovered through my extensive research during my career as a work life balance coach for mompreneurs.  Healing OMS can only be done by getting help from a professional or systematic structured action from the mompreneur. Once healed of her OMS the mompreneur can again have a balanced and happy life. OMS or Overworked Mompreneur Syndrome happens when mompreneurs have too much on their plate...
