Listen to “MIH021:Why mompreneurs must support each other” on Spreaker.
In this podcast, the first one in 2015, I come back with exciting news about upcoming changes. I also share three main reasons why mompreneurs should support one another, and two honors I have received in the past three months.
HUGE shout-out to Neoshi Yaki for including me in her January 2015 issue of Million Moms In Action magazine as a featured mompreneur.
You know why I absolutely love being a mompreneur? Because we stick together. We support one another. We help each other succeed. That circle of sisterhood is a must-have for support, motivation, and encouragement. That’s why I just needed to take some time out today and properly thank Neoshi for her hard work and efforts in pulling together a resource for women entrepreneurs.
Mompreneurs must support one another. It’s mompreneurs like Neoshi Yaki whom I appreciate for promoting teamwork through support.
Building is better than tearing down.
Have you noticed the cliquey groups- moms who divide themselves among the have’s and have-nots? This pitiful attitude works against us, keeping us from building our futures. If we tear each other down, what do we have left? I need what you bring to the table. You need what I can offer. We need each other in this world, and in business, so let’s work on building each other up.
We’re stronger together.
I love this bible passage:
The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” 1 Corinthians 12:21
How ludicrous to imagine that we could simply do away with any part of our body because we don’t see an immediate use for it. Unfortunately, I’ve witnessed far too many girl clubs and female groups that operate in this backward mentality. In fact, I have oftentimes dismissed myself and gracefully bowed out from groups that I sense is going in an awkward direction.
Ladies, we need each other! As moms, we are stronger together. As wives, friends, and confidantes, we are stronger together. As daughters, nieces, aunts, and cousins, we are stronger together. And as businesswomen, we are stronger together. If we can learn to pool together our resources and assets, we can have a collection of strength that outlasts us.
The future depends on us.
As a mompreneur, you have kids- and you know what I’m talking about when I say that our kids are literally watching us. Oftentimes they follow in our footsteps when they’ve seen our successes, or they make decisions to never repeat the mistakes we did because they watched us fail a time or two.
When we model togetherness and teamwork, our daughters and sons come to see the value in what we are promoting. Who knows? Maybe one day we’ll be able to pass the baton of entrepreneurship to them and watch our kids soar in businesses they love. But it all starts with us.
Go ahead and subscribe to her magazine and mailing list, and download a copy of this month’s issue. I’m on page 11 if you’d like to take a look at my interview questions.
Here’s to the success of moms in business who know how to support one another! Thanks, Neoshi.
