Just because you are at home and away from the hustle and bustle of a physical office building is no longer a reason to not be able to create successful startup business. In fact, an increasing amount of businesses are all moving away from the idea that a physical office is the only place to run a business from and becoming Mompreneurs!
For stay at home Moms, being unable to head to an office every day is no longer a reason to keep a good business idea from becoming a reality. Just like any startup business, all you need is a good idea and a motivation to make it a reality.
It Doesn’t Have to be Huge
The scope of your operation doesn’t have to be huge. It can be as big or as small as you want it to be. In fact, you can plan for your startup to be a Forbes 500 hopeful, or as small as just enough to provide pocket money for a rainy day. A startup venture can be as grand as you want to make it.
It Takes Less Time Everyday Than You Would Think
Every parent’s situation with their kids is different. Sometimes you have several pockets of down time here and there throughout the day, and other times you barely have enough time to make yourself breakfast. Believe it or not, people in both situations can still launch a startup business. All you need are pockets of a few minutes here and there where you can access your email and work on your product or service.
These moments that you cover your startup business’s logistic work doesn’t have to be in one solid block of time every day, so don’t feel discouraged if you can only spend a few minutes here and there as compared to a full 8 hour workday devoted solely to your startup. Do what you can when you can, and those moments will all add up.
Where Do I Start?
You don’t really need a lot to kick off a “Mompreneur” Startup operation, but to start you do need to ensure the following four areas are covered and planned for:
Do you have an Attainable Business Idea?
Is your idea something sustainable enough for you to realistically provide for clients?
Do You Know of People Who Want This Need Filled?
Can you think of potential clients or customers that will come to you to fulfill this need that you are claiming you can fill?
Can You Sustain This Project Among Your Other Obligations?
Do you have enough time per week to fulfill this need for your clients or customers while juggling the family?
Have You Factored in Your Cost of Doing Business?
How soon will the cost of materials balance out with the sales profits from your clients and customers?
Once you have these factors decided on, you are ready to launch your startup! It may seem daunting, but the hardest step to take is the first one. With the areas we covered above thought out and planned for, there is no reason to continue being shy with your new startup idea. Get out there and become the “Mompreneur” you always knew you could be!
