Many have asked me what is the Mumpreneur Movement about?
I always respond with it was created to support women to do life, motherhood and business differently.
It sounds pretty doesn’t it, but what does it really mean?
For me it means that I was so sick and tired of seeing fluffy content focused on this that didn’t really matter, content that eluded that I wasn’t pretty, fit and wrinkle-free enough, that I must be failing because my business wasn’t automated, making millions of dollars; of have hundreds and thousands of followers.
I also felt that there was such a disconnect between what a mum really is and how it’s portrayed in today’s society, especially on social media.
Just take a scroll on Instagram you can see thousands of influencer mums looking stylish and put together as do their children. Their house looks immaculate and they seem to have a perfect life.
Though it’s not real, yes some of it is but we don’t get to see behind the scenes, you know the real stuff like trying to juggle being a mum and being a boss whilst never having enough energy to make love to your partner (or with yourself, I don’t’ judge). That you can’t always take a perfect selfie, and yes it’s normal for kids to argue and fight amongst themselves as it is for us to mess up.
WE AREN’T PERFECT!
Life, motherhood and business are messy, chaotic and can feel like you are on a rollercoaster that never ends.
Sometimes it all seems hard and you hold on for dear life and try and control everything and everyone which only makes things work (like being on the rollercoaster the only thing you can control is yourself).
Then sometimes it all seems easy and fun which is when you let go of the safety bars and surrender to wherever you are being taken.
It is this duality, the challenges and experiences, the ups and downs that we have that make us stronger, wiser; more resilient as well as making us more grateful.
So I created the MM as I wanted you, women around the world to know that you aren’t alone and never will be. I am here for you, my beautiful community. As is each woman who is journeying with us.
I am here to support you, educate you and empower you through the best way I know how – The Mumpreneur Movement Magazine that shares real-life stories & expert advice from authentic women (& from a man or two) who understand you and where you are at.
This is who the Mumpreneur Movement is and I am so proud of the contributors who show up for each issue and share authentically, openly and loving for all of us to gain from.
Together we can thrive if we are willing to support each other.
So much love,
