The growing trend of moms becoming mompreneurs has been astounding. Amy Ballon and Danielle Botterell are two women that fall within this category. Like many women, they love their lives â€” no matter how crazy it can get.
According to TheStar.com, Amy and Danielle have recently collaborated on a book that demonstrates the real ups and downs of being a mompreneur, so other women can learn from their experience.
Media reports often highlight the joy of being oneâ€™s own boss, making money yet still being able to stay home with young kids, but the owners of Admiral Road Designs say thatâ€™s too simplistic.
â€œWe wanted to draw on our own experiences,â€ said Ballon, 39, in explaining why they have co-authored a new book Mom Inc. about how to start a business, outlining the challenges and benefits.
â€œWe think mompreneurship is about trade-offs and choices, and choosing the things you want most,â€ she said. â€œBut you still have to take the garbage out. You still have to file the GST.â€
They wanted the book to be real, get to the skinny, everything from how to get a bank loan to how to decide whether you need to hire help, from child care to employees.
