What makes real entrepreneur mums succeed?
The key qualities for becoming an entrepreneur mum and the mindset you need to make it all happen.
Are you a mum looking to seize the entrepreneurial spirit and build your own business? Don't let life's obligations stop you from achieving success. With balance, creativity and focus on what matters most; there is no limit to where small steps can go!
In this article, we will discuss some of the key qualities for becoming an entrepreneur mum and the mindset you need to make it all happen.
Who are the real entrepreneurs?
Real entrepreneur mums are creative, organised and focused. They know when to take risks and when to stay the course. Entrepreneur mums are great multi-taskers and can juggle responsibilities while ensuring quality of work and life.
They look at challenges as opportunities and can quickly adapt to changing circumstances. Entrepreneurs don't make excuses, but look for solutions. They are driven by passion and purpose to make a difference in their industry and community.
An Entrepreneur should be a strong advocate for productive working environments and productivity tools like time management and goal setting. They must have a clear vision of what they want to achieve and know how to translate their ideas into action.
Starting a business from the ground up can be intimidating, especially for Mums and Dads who must balance the demands of home, family and career. However, with strategic planning and realistic goal setting, entrepreneur mums can make their dreams come true!
Setting goals is essential to success; an entrepreneur should identify their primary objective, then break it down into smaller achievable goals. Realistic goals help to keep the focus on what’s essential and take away some of the pain of the unknown.
However, it’s important to remember that starting a business takes commitment and hard work. Entrepreneur parents should create a schedule for themselves and stick to it. Writing down tasks on a daily basis will help to stay motivated and organised, taking small steps in the right direction.
Who is the first lady entrepreneur?
Madame C.J. Walker, known as the first female entrepreneur, is an excellent example of a "self-made woman". Sarah Breedlove was born into poverty and became one of the most successful African American businesswomen of her time.
Walker was born into poverty and became one of the most successful African American businesswomen of her time. She was orphaned at the age of 7.
After Walker herself suffered from a scalp ailment that caused her to lose most of her hair, she created Madam Walker's Wonderful Hair Grower - a scalp conditioning and healing formula - in 1905.
Madam Walker's Wonderful Hair Grower was so popular that, only a year after it launched, Walker opened a factory and beauty school in Pittsburgh, United states. By 1910 her company had already raked in several million dollars (in modern equivalent).
In 1917, Walker founded and held the Madam C.J. Walker Hair Culturists Union of America convention in Philadelphia - one of the first national meetings for business women at that time.
Walker was also a philanthropist. She regularly made donations to charities and churches, as well as African American causes. Walker believed that the only way to uplift African Americans was through economic independence and access to education.
Madam C.J. Walker is a true inspiration for today’s entrepreneurs. Her hard work, determination and generosity should encourage any aspiring business owner to never give up and always push for success.
In the words of Madame C.J. Walker: “I am a woman who came from the cotton fields of the South. From there I was promoted to the washtub. From there I was promoted to the cook kitchen. And from there I promoted myself into the business of manufacturing hair goods and preparations.”
Madame C.J Walker is a shining example of what can be achieved when you have ambition, determination and the courage to succeed. We can all learn from her example and use her legacy to inspire our own entrepreneurial dreams.
With the right attitude and dedication, anyone can go from being a small business owner to becoming a successful entrepreneur. All it takes is an idea and the determination to make it happen.
So, don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and make your dreams come true! With a bit of hard work and dedication, you never know what you might achieve!
Are entrepreneurs naturally born?
Entrepreneurship is not simply an inherited trait; it's something that people achieve through their own experiences and learning. Anyone has the potential to become a successful entrepreneur with the right decisions along their journey.
Successful entrepreneurs are typically characterised by their willingness to take risks, think big and stay focused on their goals. However, these traits can be acquired, not inherited.
Entrepreneurs learn through experience and develop the skills needed to be successful. Many entrepreneurs start out with similar traits, but it is through taking risks, learning from failures and honing their skills that they become successful.
Moreover, entrepreneurship requires a certain mindset; the ability to look at a challenge and see an opportunity. This mindset is not something that comes naturally to everyone, but with hard work and dedication anyone can learn it.
