Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What exactly IS a Mompreneur?
A: Well, I suppose it depends who you ask! Our definition of a Mompreneur is “a multi-tasking woman who can balance both the stresses of running a business as an entrepreneur, and the time-consuming duties of motherhood, all at the same time”! Whether it’s a Mompreneur who has a bricks-and-mortar business (physical location) or an an online or direct marketing business… we truly feel that any woman who juggles their own business and family at the same time is a mompreneur at heart!
Q: Do I have to be a mom/mompreneur to exhibit in an event presented by or offered by Mompreneurs?
A: While our events are intended to expose mompreneurs specifically to their communities, we do offer many opportunities for business owners from all walks of life to participate in our shows and events… yes, that even includes men and women who are not moms!! Your best bet is to get in contact directly with the event co-ordinator for the specific event you are interested in, to see how your business can fit in!
Q: How can I start a Mompreneur® group in my community?
A: Just ask! Your first step is to email [email protected] directly to see if your community is being developed already, or if it is available. Then it’s a matter of sending you information and seeing if it’s a good fit for both you and HQ – nice and easy! You can also find more information on-site through our Mompreneurs® Licensing & Brand Ambassador Opportunities page.
