Starting a Home for Mommy MBA

Times are hard. And according to some, it may actually get harder because of globalization. Gone are the days that when one country experiences financial problem, it affects only its own citizenry. The financial crisis happening in other nations affect us – the Philippines and the Filipino people. But despite all of these, we as a nation are still able to survive and in our own way thrive. Being tagged as a developing country and not being able to experience the many benefits of other industrialized nations, we have become resilient. Yes, like a Bamboo tree, a Filipino can sway with whatever global crisis there is and still come out unbroken. Thus, the most famous Filipino spirit at work.
This Filipino spirit is at the forefront of every Filipino family. Filipino families have been known for their unique kind of bonding. We value family first and foremost. We derive strength from each other so that no matter what comes our way, we still forge ahead.
Mommies nowadays often have to work alongside the fathers or Dads of the family. This came as a result of Filipino families’ way of adapting to the challenges posed by a more difficult economy. In order to augment the family income and be able to provide for the family, both parents need to work. But for some, this may not be an option. Either by choice or by situation, there are Mommies who cannot work outside of the home. Some may have a number of children that force them to stay behind and take care of the little ones. A helper may not be enough to take care of the children and so they become stay-at-home Moms. Then there are those Mommies who just choose to be a stay-at-home. I am very blessed to have fallen under the last category.
As a stay-at-home Mom myself, I know for a fact that being such is no easy walk in the park. It’s actually more hard work. This way, I would really like to salute these women! They wake up early and sleep late, sometimes very late specially when they still have babies to take care of. Attending to all the nitty-gritty of household work and budgeting can often times be a herculean task in itself. But still, there are those who want to do more. These are the women who have mastered the art of balancing their Mommy acts together. They hope and pray that they could help out the family even further by having their own business.
The How-to’s and various Do’s and Don’ts will be discussed even further in my next article. For now, bask in the knowledge that you, my dear Mommy, can actually be an entrepreneur!
