What’s a Mompreneur?
Some people hate this word some love it.I am definitely in the “totally obsessed with mompreneur’s “group.A mommy who is an entrepreneur is a mompreneur.Simple right?Not really.
The difference between a mompreneur and any other entrepreneur?
You are your own boss when you are an entrepreneur.But a mompreneur has all her schedule and business wrapped around the plans of her little one.
Children are a great source of joy and happiness.
All mommies have their child as their first priority and that’s where a mompreneur is different.
So how did a doctor fit into this?
After studying to be a doctor, I thought life was a dream just getting real.
But just like in the movies, just when you think you know it all.Life gives you a sudden twist and all the plans come crashing down.
After I got my postgraduate degree in ENT from Safdarjung hospital in New Delhi, we left for Kolkata.I had a million dreams and was not lacking self-confidence. But life had a rude shock waiting for me.
My pediatrician hubby soon landed a job, but poor me with my apathy towards night duties and night on call shifts, had a trying time getting my dream job.On top of that, we were really hoping to have a baby.
That was when I realized that whatever be your qualification until you control your income you have no control over your life.
A turning point.Definitely. Did I stop looking for a job.Oh no!
I got my job as a full-time doctor in a medical college after searching for 2 years and 3 months.Before that, it was a mix and match of consultations and part-time jobs.
What I loved about the part-time scenario was I was still earning (definitely not as well as full time)but had time enough for other stuff.
That’s when I started reading about blogging.I am a certified, voracious bookworm.I love reading!
E-book, printed books, cartoons, children’s books, newspaper,magazines.Give me anything.
I can’t go to the beauty parlor, or for a trip without at least one book and tab loaded with articles.Now I also have a Kindle as a backup.
Reading blogs are so much fun.I enjoyed reading all sorts of blog.It just has to be good.
Lots of inspiration but no action was definitely not the right course of action. So I jumped right in.
Learning from scratch about a new topic like blogging, tingled all my brain cells.I planned to start a business.
Totally scared, overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start.But I did start.
I am stumbling across Google, Facebook groups, twitter chats, and webinars.
Collecting free, paid and gifted nuggets of wisdom and trying to use them on my blog.One at a time.
