Raising a Child Has Inspired
Kids inspire women to launch own careers
By: Neil Hodgson
Raising a child has inspired thousands of women to launch their own business – and given them the skills to succeed – according to a study of ‘Mum Magnates’ by Yell.com.
More than 40% of mothers surveyed said they got the idea to start their own business while pregnant, and 92% said they attributed their success to skills gained through motherhood.
Psychologist Dr Geoffrey Beattie said: “Pregnancy can elevate the mood for long periods of time. When people are in an elevated mood state, they are prepared to consider riskier types of initiatives.”
