The 2014 Top 100 Leading Moms in Business ranking highlights some of the dominant trends, motivations and attributes among moms in business. They include:
A great eye for providing attractive discounts, coupons, savings and value, all especially important to consumer moms of the recession era.
A likelihood to come up with innovative products and solutions to address the challenging maze of motherhood. It’s an environment that demands resourcefulness.
Conscience-driven business, where “doing well” is just fine, but the real rush comes from doing good.
The attraction of being your own boss looms large for moms wanting to take control they just can’t find in a day job.
Sustainable solutions and responsible business practices are increasingly paramount.
Making the most of social media for business benefit is seemingly a birthright for the socially adept moms.
