Infographic: How Mompreneurs Balance Business & Family

New Mother’s Day Survey Sheds Light on Reality of Today’s “Mompreneur”

Mom entrepreneurs typically start their businesses after their child hits school age, overwhelmingly serve as the household’s primary caregiver, regularly put in a “second shift” after kids go to bed, and are more likely to sacrifice working out and socializing with friends over missed family time. They are also significantly less likely to raise outside funding for their venture than male parent entrepreneurs, but often have the support of a network of fellow entrepreneurs.

These are just a few of the topline findings revealed in a recent survey by online graphic design marketplace 99designs that polled more than 1,290 male and female business owners with at least one child under 18 from US, Europe and Australia about various aspects of their business and personal lives.
