In honor of Mother’s Day, SHE celebrates mompreneurs. You are creative forces of nature, changing the landscape of business, art, and commerce—all the while still caring for your families. You are, mamas, the very definition of inspiring.
SHE founder Suzette Hibble says “I particularly love to photograph mompreneurs because I am one. It’s not always easy to be both a mother and an entrepreneur. But photography has given me the opportunity to step beyond my role as a mom and follow my passion. My business gives me a sense of deeper purpose, contribution, connection to my community and acknowledgment from that community.
The other piece I find incredibly meaningful is witnessing how my daughter experiences it all: she sees me as a both ‘Mom’ and business woman, creating balance while I do both jobs. This has opened up many conversations about practical considerations, like being self sufficient and successful, and–most importantly–about following our dreams. If I teach my daughter that women really do have the strength to take on any role we choose—or many roles at once if that’s what fulfills us, then I personally have succeeded beyond my wildest dreams.”
Mompreneurs around the globe echo this sentiment. Sheri Atwood, founder and CEO of SupportPay tells Business News Daily that “I can show my daughter that absolutely anything is possible. As a single mom in my mid-30s, starting a tech company wasn’t going to be easy, but despite the odds I have shown my daughter and other women that with hard work, passion and tenacity, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.” Stephanie Winans, COO of Bundoo, writes that her mompreneurs role sends a message of “Yes, you can” to her daughters. “If you can’t ‘have it all’ under someone else’s rules, create your own rules and pave your own way.”
Living the life of a mompreneurs may be a challenge, but it’s clearly a rewarding and inspiring one—not only for these moms, but for their children because of the amazing example their mamas set. On Mother’s Day, SHE honors and celebrates these women for their creativity, energy, bravery and strength.
