Why Mothers Make Better Business women
Men and women have equal rights in Modern society. There was a time, when within some societies or regions, people use to think that women had only responsibility of taking care of domestic matters, but the time has changed now and awareness in society accelerated. The world has understood the truth, that should have been understood a long time ago, that women have the right to contribute equally in the every single aspect of society.
I took this decision to start my own enterprise when I became the mother of a child. And soon I realize that there is no as such difference between managing a business, it’s more likely I’m taking care of my family. It in fact helped me a lot when I started taking care of family stuff like I did my business. I started creating visions and mission statements, settled my goal and strategized everything just like my business. We started some team building activities, on a larger scale, business helped me out a lot for being a better mum.
Though sometimes I put my motherhood ahead in circumstances and take less care about business matters, it’s all just a part of growing. I have met some women who put this terrific idea back of being businesswomen because they are afraid that if they do so, they could not keep it in balance and will be missing a chance of being good parents. I put my family first, in order to keep thing in balance but it doesn’t mean that it affects business. There is a great author Julie Kirk who wrote a book called The ParentPrenuer Edge, a thorough guidance about establishing a successful business. The book provides far valid reasons of how being mother makes for a good businesswoman.
