“If you want something done, ask a busy person.”- Benjamin Franklin
Enter the role of ‘mumpreneur.’ Whether an employee or entrepreneur, a mum knows how to multi-task, prioritise, and get the job done. No stretching out tasks to kill time because every moment counts when spending it away from the kids. You won’t have to worry about production.
She’s accustomed to loss-of-sleep, sickness and all the guts and glory of motherhood. She won’t be coming up with excuses not to work; she’s got enough whining at home. A mum is bullet-proof. Whether juggling multiple projects, managing accounts, clients, or just filing paperwork – a mum is a natural multi-tasker.
A mum will appreciate the break from the kid-zone and the creative ‘adult’ time. She’s grateful for the income and the chance to provide for her family. Her gratitude is the key to success. She’ll enjoy what she does, which means she will be great at it. It will also mean she’ll make you lots of money if she works with you. A mum doesn’t mess around.
She will be less likely to jump ship and she’ll be more committed for the sake of her kiddos and her future. A mum doesn’t quit.
