"Mompreneurs" -
Moms Who Operate A Business From Their Home


More than one-third of all U.S. households include a current, aspiring, or past business owner. Included in this group is a growing number of "mompreneurs."

Mompreneurs -- nearly 10 million of them -- are women with children who for varied reasons have embraced the concept of being their own boss. They are jumping into the small business ring, some of them even setting aside the demands of a full time job so they can spend more time with their kids while setting up home-based businesses.
