Why Mompreneurs Inspire
Imagine a person juggling two full time roles simultaneously. Women do it without sacrificing one for the other. They excel in both the roles. Moms themselves inspire a whole lot in our community with their ability to raise a family. May be it comes naturally to them. Business too needs care ,emotional support and never ending ability to focus on details and solving problems. Networking is crucial for success and this skill in women especially moms is in abundance.
Can a woman be both a mother and an entrepreneur?
Apparently they can. Over the years, this growing-in-popularity slang term describes women who can run their own businesses while still maintaining their role as a full-time parent. The growth of the internet and e-commerce has played a big role in allowing mothers to become entrepreneurs, as it allowed women to sell products from home rather than relying on travelling to a storefront.
This type of work provides the flexibility moms often need to earn a living while completing usual family obligations like driving the kids to soccer practice or running to the grocery store. Usually moms work during the time when their children don’t require much attention, like when they’re in school or at theatre rehearsal.
Oftentimes if you think of a business woman, you usually think that they put their career first and don’t have kids — but it’s actually the best of both words. Mothers can make up their own hours while still going through the daily motions of life. In addition, sometimes mompreneur’s own children can serve as business inspiration to solve real-world problems most other mothers have as well.
"My favorite thing about being a mompreneur is all of the inspiration I gather from my children. After planning so many birthday parties and celebrations for them, the idea to create Partyology came from my desire to streamline the party-planning process without compromising that professional look we all want. Without being a mom, I wouldn't be where I am today, with an app that makes the lives of moms a little bit easier!"– Barbara Edelstein, co-founder,

Garima Satija, an HR professional, started a restaurant-reviewing website that offers dining deals too
The foodie in Garima Satija wriggled its way to sidetrack the HR professional she was for many years — and thus, PoshVine was born“I have always been a foodie, and whenever I used to go online to discover a great dining place, I invariably stumbled on online directories or websites which were complaint boards. I longed for a service that gives me intelligent recommendations, curates great fine dining experiences and gives me the control and flexibility to enjoy it,” says Garima Satija, a HR professional for many years, who started this personal dining concierge, with the mission to make the venture the best decision engine to avail of great dining and culinary experiences in our city. She adds, “Earlier, at work, whenever we planned for team lunches and dinners, I used to be the one planning all our dining occasions, including doling out opinion whenever colleagues planned to take their families out dining on special occasions!” says this driven, hard-working, focussed, entrepreneur whose passion for food made the choice quite a natural corollary.
