The Challenges of Being a Supermom in The 21st Century

To all fellow mothers,

I appreciate all the hard work that you have done for family; and most moms are trying to be a supermom in this 21st century.  Supermom means moms who can manage home, bring up children well and have a fulfilling career.

I would say that it is not easy to manage home, family and a career at the same time, but we have choices in life.

Having a career is good and healthy. However, working full time outside home can be demanding and commuting can add longer working hours. I believe that there is an option of working from home. I see the growing trend of entrepreneurship. Mothers set up their home-based business based on their passion. Yes, we can create our solo career from home by using the Internet, technology and social media. We are living in the new economy, where the use of ICT (Information and Communications Technology) can open up to possibilities. Beware of unscrupulous business opportunities  which entice to reward big money without working.  It is crucial to align your career with your passion, personality and talents.

Personal growth  and emotional balance are vital too.
