Studies indicate that about 15 percent of people who dare venture out and become entrepreneur succeed. On the other hand, 85 percent failed, lost their investment and ended up going back to their day jobs (if they could find one). If you’re considering venturing out and become a Mom-Entrepreneur, having real passion for what you do will give you better chances at succeeding. Here are some tips that you can apply while you’re working your way towards your business’ success.
Observe your community and look around for potential services or products that you can provide. Study your neighborhood family’s profiles and keep in mind that these days, convenience is the name of the game. Identify what type of services you can offer your community that will allow them to devote more time for family or be more productive with their endeavors.
After years of slaving on the corporate world, you sure have acquired special skills from your job which you can use for becoming a Mom-Entrepreneur. Enhance these skills and talents by attending seminars, trainings, reading books and through the internet.

There are several possible avenues for people who want to jump out of the corporate box and be a Mom-Entrepreneur. Some of them apply for a part time consultancy service or as a work-from-home specialist for call center or a business processing organization. So assuming you are internet savvy, you’ve got specific skills that a certain BPO requires and you’re proficient at verbal communications, you can easily take the shot at this type of home biz.
Apart from being an online specialist, you may also consider tutoring other kids aside from your child. Once you leave the corporate world, you’ll have more time to spend with your family and you can learn to teach your child new skills and a lot of information that he or she needs at school. You may also look at this from another angle. By developing your child’s skills and talents, you can apply for a scholarship and improve your child’s future all the while saving on their future educational expense. Your savings can now be invested to earn additional income.
