How I start every morning #coffee #tarheels A photo posted by Raki Wright (@rakiwright) on
As a working mom building her own business during moonlight hours, I have a great perspective on why moms make great entrepreneurs – because I am one!
I am recharged during the time I spend away from my children, as it allows them space to develop and both of us can return home, excited to see each other and share all that has happened during our day. I love feeling a sense of accomplishment that I have contributed towards something, whether it be completing a great project at work, mastering that skill that I never thought I would ever learn, or saving a client’s day.
I learn skills at work that I can apply at home like budgeting, delegating, and teamwork. I also have experience, as a mom, that I can bring to work like being a leader, taking responsibility, multitasking, and learning the most efficient way to get something done with limited resources.
Being a working mom helps me to be a better employee and a better mom.
If I didn’t have to work, would I? Yes! I would be self employed, on my own terms. I have learned so much about myself and learned things that can help others. There are so many women who don’t have a choice, including me for now, but I know others could benefit from the trials and lessons that I’ve learned from.
