So what comes to mind when you read the word “mamapreneuer?” It rings like a super-mom idiom to me. But let me enlighten you. It’s not, really. A mamapreneuer is a mom who works from home for various reasons that range from the ability to stay home with her baby/children to convenience to you name it. Not all moms want to return to work outside of the home after having her first child. Being a mamapreneuer is an opportunity to be creative, available to the family, and able to nurture your own children in your own way. Moms who work outside the home are amazing as well. We highly respect and support them. A mamapreneuer is just a different spin on work and home-life that is gaining in popularity like hotcakes.
Here are some inspiring quotes from mamapreneuers that are all running successful businesses right from their home~
