The <a href=”http://www.independent.ie/lifestyle/parenting/the-rise-of-the-mumtrepreneurs-1468169.html” target=”_blank”>Irish Independent</a> has reported on the rise of the mumpreneur this week, and have found out something that won’t be news to anyone combining work with kids. They report “Without fail, the mumtrepreneurs told the same harrowing tale of late nights, early mornings and constant pressure. ” Ring any bells?
It is not all gloom here though, as we all know the late nights and slog can be compensated for. There’s no need to ask the boss for an afternoon off for the school play, and us businessmums can always drop work to collect a sick child, even if it means a bit more pressure the next day. I know the pros outweigh the cons for me – how about you?
