Prachi Chopra- Founder INSIA

Balancing Motherhood & Entrepreneurship is a challenge, an adventure I go through everyday. I was already a mom to 9 yr old & 1.5 yr old kids when I started my start-up. I took up office which is 5 mins walking from my place so I could run in & out for my kids & family when required. As a mom, I do almost everything for my kids right from getting them ready for school dropping them, picking them up to getting their homework done.

For this, my time management skills come in place. I get up early, plan my day in advance to the dot and make sure I adhere to that plan. At night when they go off to sleep, I try finishing my office work ahead so I get some more time to finish some unforeseen tasks. By the end of the day, I really feel like a satisfied superwoman. Train your staff well so they can function well in your absence. Define their roles well. In this tech savvy world business can be handled from just about anywhere so don’t stress.

Kanikka Tiwari, Founder – Amairaa forever beautiful

I am a proud mommy to three kids, two sons aged 4.5yrs and 3yrs and my daughter who has just turned 9 months!

So motherhood has never been an end for my personal or professional growth, in fact it’s been a start to many firsts for me! I believe one can achieve all that one wants if you put your heart and soul positively into it! I try to keep myself motivated at all times no matter what come may!! Create a happy support system around yourself whether it’s family, well wishers, friends or even full time helpers! I go for girls night/breakfast atleast once a month to unwind myself.

You don’t have to do everything on your own!!  Delegate household chores and concentrate your time on more important things, that ways you will not exhaust yourself on trivial matters!

Anshul Kharbanda- Owner- Magic Strings By Anshul Kharbanda

I am a mother of 7 years daughter. When my daughter was 4.5 yrs old i thought of starting my own brand in customised products. As living in a joint family it was a good option for me ” working from home”. RECOGNIZE THE PRIORITIES -Do first which is more important. For eg -if you can leave the work for 1 or 2 hours bcoz you have to give time to your family/ kids, than why not. On the same hand if you give work priority first than go ahead but dnt forget to give time to family/ kids afterwards.

Anjali Kushwaha- Amway Business Consultant

I had masters degree in computer applications. Me and my hubby we both were working when we came to know I am pregnant. We both were excited for our first baby and I decided that I will quit my job and will enjoy my motherhood. I never felt that I had taken any wrong decision. So I had taken a break from my career but it doesn’t mean I was not serious about career. I was looking for some opportunities. I wanted to do something along my baby. I met some people who were building their business in their spare time so I also joined my hand with them and now I am also working with them as a team..  

Praggatti Rao- Director at Educonceptsindia Initiatives

Motherhood and work balance comes easily if we choose to BELIEVE that If many others can do it well so can I, Believe it’s doable and connect with people to model and find out what is working for them Practically, Feel ok to delegate and share the workload , use cohesiveness in the family to assign tasks to other family members it’s fine to not feel guilty of me time as it brings out your best, keeping firm time lines to be available for work and family works too.

Yashodhra Patil- Director, KIDZOPEDIA

Being a working mother has its own set of hurdles to jump over from scheduling nightmares to extreme tiredness and working mother guilt and to be continuously on phone on weekends/odd hours coordinating with multiple vendors is the biggest challenge. So I created boundaries so that I can get my time off from the regular routine and be with my family.

Sushma Tiwari- Founder, MirrorsnImages 

As a working mom the challenges of life for sure increases. Balancing becomes tough many a times. But I feel if we plan our day before hand things can be worked out in a much easier way. We as females have really out grown a lot in very less time span which is challenging, as the society and family is still taking time to digest that our involvement in the house can be a little less, so expected support is quite less. Ultimately I feel that we are strong enough to manage everything as we are regularly pushing ourselves for the betterment of our family and society as well.

Vineeta Bhatia- Trainer, Speaker and Image Consultant

Being a working mother is never so easy. Sometimes you get feelings of guilt and stress, as you realize that your attention is getting divided between work and family. But don’t let these feelings stop you, make them your strength instead. The key to have a balance between work and motherhood is to keep yourself Organised, Focused on your goals and most important Acceptance.

I am a mother of two beautiful children aged 11 and 4 and am working in Hospitality line for last 11 years. Streamline, streamline, streamline — less really can be more. Admit when you need help —mothers are masters at hiding their struggles but they are not superhumans. Create clear margins in the workplace — and always “walk your talk”

Manisha Kumar- Entrepreneur

Being a mother of 2.5 years old twins and a full time working mother it’s really important to balance out your family especially kids, work, home and your business else you end up getting stressed and non-performance at all aspects. Time management is basically key for me. I have divided my time for all my activities for eg. Work has dedicated hours which I put in, then daily chores of home, daily activities with kids, my consultations and business. Of course your spouse also plays a vital role in supporting at all levels.
