Mompreneur: Belittling or Empowering?


I’ve been involved in Twitter discussion about the word “Mompreneur” based on this article at The article posits that women-led businesses have a tough time getting capitalized, especially if their products or services target women or families. @85Broads widened the discussion to whether there is a stigma to “mompreneur“.

As a woman professional, I have watched the “mompreneur” debate from the sidelines for a few years now, along with the related “mommy blogger” debate.

I am a professional. I am also a mom. I take both of these roles seriously, and sometimes they overlap. One Saturday, I held a deal together by Blackberry from the Museum of Life and Science. I have a magnetic Thomas the Tank Engine set in my briefcase for those days where my kid has to come search titles.
