There’s a myth that having a family and running a company are incompatible, but here are 3 reasons why kids can be a business advantage.
As a mother of two (with a third on the way), who started both a company and family at the same time, I’m always eager to dispel the myth that having a family will set back your business. This is constantly a topic of focus in the media regarding women-owned businesses (as if men don’t have kids too), which make up only 35% of the total entrepreneurial population. Who knows how big that percentage might get if women felt like starting a family was an asset, instead of a conflict, with launching a business?
