Running Your Own Business As Well As Being A Full-Time Mum
The superheroes have cornered the market on multi-tasking. A newspaper photographer by day becomes a flying strongman by night. A millionaire playboy moonlights as a crime-fighting rodent. And they still find time to squabble with each other.
Multitasking gets a bad rap these days, as the kryptonite to mindfulness, but for working moms it’s their lifeblood.
Batman v SuperMum? Place your bets, folks. My money’s on the real heroes. I have watched my best friend make Pad Thai one-handed, the other occupied with a squirming baby, while remaining fully immersed in our conversation. She’s a stay home mom, a student, an artist, a maker, and an entrepreneur. I try to imagine my own capacity for motherhood: how could I possibly add another thing to my already-hectic life? I don’t have time to shower most days, and the home-cooked-to-takeout ratio leans heavily on the latter.
But moms everywhere are making it happen, simultaneously nurturing small businesses and small humans – both 24/7 jobs. And they’re killing it. (There’s hope for me still.)
Since I can’t speak from experience, I enlisted the help of Kerry Wilson – serial entrepreneur, speaker, podcast host, community rouser, and mom. She’s the brains behind Founding Mums (her third business venture), a collective of online resources and offline meet-ups that help mom-slash-entrepreneurs connect to build better businesses together.
“I started it because I was running unrelated businesses and merely wanted to find other women building businesses and raising babies at the same time — because how were they doing it? Apparently I’m not the only one wondering these things.”
