It's no secret to all who know me how I make my living as a momtrepreneur. But those of you just crossing my path may be interested in using my story to your benefit.
How do you become a momtrepreneur?
Writing worked out extremely well for me. However, if writing is not your thing, figure out what works for you. The key to being a successful momtrepreneur is figuring out what you are good at that you can do while spending as much time with your kids as possible.
For some, it may mean working from home. For others it may mean working a part time job that allows them to be available at all times the kids are not in school or otherwise occupied.
The current definition of it for me is combining my family life and my career to make both awesome. I homeschool my kids and write for a living from the convenience of my own home. Much of my writing is centered around what I learn and do in my family life.
My family life is wonderful because of the flexibility and knowledge I gain in my writing career. If you're a parent who can write, I highly recommend it. If writing is not your thing, I definitely don't. It's hard work when you know what you're doing -- and even harder if you don't.
When you read my articles, blog posts, book, and more, perhaps writing seems easy. I do enjoy my work, but I wouldn't say it's easy 100% of the time. Sometimes the words do just flow. But if you're looking for a get rich quick scheme or an easy way out, this is not it.
There are days I can write seemingly nonstop and there are other days where I can't even get out a paragraph. There's money to be had, but like any other legitimate opportunity, it takes hard work and dedication.
Look inside your heart and find out what your personal momtrepreneur (or dadtrepreneur) definition is.
If it happens to be writing, I highly recommend getting started with Write W.A.V.E. Media to get some samples out there. If you do, be sure to ask me for help if you need it. I'm the founder, one of the owners, and also a Community Manager.
