So, I have a very strong reaction when I hear that amazing, smart, loving moms feel guilty for focusing their energy on something other than their children 24/7. Mompreneurs citing “mom guilt” as a thing they deal with regularly is the main reason my coaching practice focuses on developing mompreneurs holistically. You can have major professional success and love your business...but, without knowing how to cope with the onset of mom guilt, you will waste time and energy on feelings that are unproductive and ultimately damaging to yourself and your relationships.
Think of a time when you felt as if you weren’t fully present, completely aware and engaged with your children and family when you later thought you should be… and the mom guilt began to set in. How much energy is spent regularly feeling guilty?
