Millennial mompreneurs are the new generation of entrepreneurial women who are changing the world. We are visionaries and aren’t settling for the status quo. We’re not going to sit around and wait for someone else to create the opportunities that we want, we’re creating them ourselves with our babies in tow.

Although we’re proving that it’s possible to be an amazing mother and have a successful empire, it’s not always easy or glamorous. There are a lot of challenges that we face while raising babies and businesses.

So, let’s dive into a few harsh realities of being a millennial mompreneur:

  1. It can get lonely.
    Mompreneurs are often the only women in their circle who own a business. It’s crucial that you surround yourself with people who understand what it means to be a mompreneur and who will support you during times of doubt and exhaustion (trust me, there will be plenty of both!). These people should also share the same interests as you so that they can help motivate and inspire you when things get tough!
  2. You experience mom guilt.
    You feel like you should be spending more time with your kids when you’re working. And when you’re spending time with your kids, you feel like you could be doing more in your business. The struggle is real.
  3. You neglect self-care.
    ‘When’s the last time I showered?’ You feel like you have no time for yourself, and it’s hard to remember that you are just as important as anyone else. We want to do it all and fail at saying no. You have to make yourself a priority. Remember, you can’t pour from an empty cup.
  4. You’ll have many sleepless nights.
    Thought the newborn stage was tough? Try being a mompreneur…. Especially if your kids are small or you’re homeschooling them. You have to be creative in how and when you work.
  5. You’re not always going to have it all together.
    There will be days when your baby or toddler doesn’t want to nap and you have an important Zoom meeting. You’ll forget to eat lunch. You’ll have 4 hours of sleep. You’re going to have bad days, it’s just inevitable. The reality is that life doesn’t always work out the way we expect it to, and that’s okay.

    There’s a constant battle between wanting to be a great mom and run a successful business. I’m here to tell you that it’s not easy— but it can be done! As difficult as it can be, it’s so rewarding to know that you’re building something that you can pass down to your babies one day.
