“She’s got that whole earth goddess, warrior priestess, gonna save the world vibe (Unknown).”

She’s a mom.

She’s an entrepreneur.

Which means she’s legendary. A rare breed of the best of both worlds. Because let’s face it – mom’s make great entrepreneurs.

 

Rock the Cradle, Rule the World

The meaning of being a mother is virtually endless. “A mother is a protector, disciplinarian and friend. A mother is a selfless, loving human who must sacrifice many of their wants and needs for the wants and needs of their children. A mother works hard to make sure their child is equipped with the knowledge, skills and abilities to make it as a competent human being. Being a mother is perhaps the hardest, most rewarding job a woman will ever experience,” says LiveStrong.com contributor Susan Diranian.

Whether you’re the recipient, or giver, of this force you understand how instrumental a mother can be. The first five years of a child’s life is a time that’s fundamentally important. A mother tirelessly works to build a foundation that shapes their children’s future health, happiness, growth, development … and remarkably, they’re tackling the same process in pursuing life’s passions.

If you’re fortunate enough to intimately love, know, observe or connect with a mother – you can appreciate the depth of what it takes: “For the hand that rocks the cradle. Is the hand that rules the world (William Ross Wallace).

“As a mother and entrepreneur myself, I’m here to tell you this: Being a mother actually qualifies you more to become a successful entrepreneur. Raising your own startup is hard, and so is being a mom, and I believe that as mothers we acquire many of the skills that are essential as we become entrepreneurs,” says Yael Kochman, a mom and experienced entrepreneur leading her own startup, Roojoom.

 

Mom’s Make The Best Entrepreneurs

The meaning of being an entrepreneur is virtually endless.

Motherhood, like entrepreneurship, is a preeminent force for change in the world. As a woman, through observing my own mother, and those around me, it is unarguably intrinsic – how a woman fosters her child through stages of development; learning how to best support a child as she or he grows and develops.
