Mompreneur Side-Hustle Business Ideas For Moms!

Mompreneur Side-Hustle Business Ideas For Moms!

So it’s almost 2020. Maybe you’ve decided that you’re going to get off the fence and contribute to your world and your household income in a new kind of way. Maybe you need to contribute for financial reasons, maybe you have different reasons. But one thing is for certain… Mompreneurship can be big business.

I am SOO passionate about yesterday’s Global News parenting lifestyle segment!

The kids are back in school very soon. Ever dream of a side-hustle or making money working from home? Can’t think of what to do? Yesterday morning, I shared Mompreneur Side-Hustle Business Ideas for Moms.

Moms, female entrepreneurs, independence, purpose, dream chasing, making your own money. Everything I love.

When The Dress Doesn't Fit

When The Dress Doesn’t Fit

It would not zip up.

It had, not two weeks ago, zipped just fine—with extra room, in fact. But now, forty-five minutes before we were supposed to be sitting in the wedding chapel pew, the beautiful silk cocktail dress would not zip. The wedding was at 5:30 on Saturday evening. It was black-tie (technically “optional,” but not practically so). The bride’s family was from New York City, and the wedding was in an upscale part of Connecticut. I had packed only one formal dress to wear. This dress. This dress that was supposed to fit, but didn’t.

“Let me see,” my husband said as I started pacing in the tiny Air B&B Bedroom that looked like an explosion of somebody’s great aunt’s entire nick-knack collection. We’re talking cat figurines, cat clocks, a cat doorstop, and some angels (of course there were angels—with older women of the great-aunt variety, where there are always cats and angels). There were also weird glass bowls, and teacups, and not enough room on either side of the bed to fit both suitcases. There were proper inns, of course, but those cost three times as much, and we have other things to pay for, like diapers.

How Momma Got Her Groove Back (And You Can Too)

How Momma Got Her Groove Back (And You Can Too)

“What’s up with Mom? She’s acting different these days. She is slower to respond to our requests for ridiculous things that we could easily get ourselves. She is on her phone a lot, too. She seems to be busier and quicker to ‘shush’ us. But strangely, she also seems happier. She seems excited about whatever it is she is doing on her computer and phone all day. She seems a little prouder of herself.”

Well, guess what guys? Mom went back to work. No, it’s not a 9-5 office job, and that’s why she still gets to spend the majority of her day taking care of you, but she is working, and she is working really freaking hard.

I think that after being a SAHM for three years, the whole family got very used to and fond of the idea that Mommy doesn’t work. Nope. Not like those people who really work. Those people who go to the office every day and make a difference with what they are doing. Nope. That’s not Mom. Mom just stays home with us and makes sure we are doing okay. How easy is that, right?
