5 Ways To Make New Friends As A Busy Mompreneur
When we’re busy entrepreneurs, we can feel even more disconnected, because we’re some in some odd kind of place between the working moms and the stay at home moms.
I didn’t even stop to consider what we may (or may not) have in common, or if we would actually enjoy each other’s company.
It took me a long time to realize that it was more important to find the RIGHT friends, the kind and supportive friends, than to just HAVE friends.
Plenty of moms are willing to laugh with me about the latest fiasco I’ve encountered in my day. And there’s plenty of amazing people who will leave me feeling uplifted and happy when our (fun but rare) coffee dates end.
Except we aren’t always finding these amazing soon-to-be bestie moms, because we’re caving under the pressure to befriend Janie’s mom at school so our kids can hang out on Saturday.
Mompreneur Friend Finder Hack #1 – Local Facebook business & mom groups
The perk of this one- you can join women’s entrepreneur groups and post in there to find local moms nearby who are ALSO entrepreneurs!
Mompreneur Friend Finder Hack #2 – The library
As odd as this place might seem for mompreneur vibes- I’ve discovered that the moms who generally go to library story and craft times are usually fun, laid-back, and enjoy new ideas!
Mompreneur Friend Finder Hack #3 – The coffee shop
I like this spot for making friends because ladies who sit down inside of a coffee shop tend to be either- A- also busy, (like me!) and looking for a quick, quiet break OR B- also working on some sort of flex system, which makes them a great fit.
Mompreneur Friend Finder Hack #4 – (The obvious one) The local playground
Strike up a convo! Get chatting! (Also a great place for that angry birds pick-up line.)
Mompreneur Friend Finder Hack #5 – The bookstore
The perk of making mom friends at the bookstore is that you have an automatic conversation starter- what do they like to read? What book would they suggest? This helps you figure out fairly quickly if you have things in common.
Comment below with your fave mompreneur friend-finding hot spot too, if you’ve got one. Us moms need all the help meeting each other that we can get! ?
