Mom entrepreneurs are stressed out...duh!

Saturday, July 12, 2008 recently reported that mom entrepreneurs are stressed out. Duh?!

The article reports that a survey of more than 1,000 female business owners who are part of the Make Mine a Million $ Business program -- created by Count Me In for Women's Economic Independence and American Express OPEN -- found that 27 percent of moms have “a high level of stress related to balancing work and family demands, compared to just 18 percent of non-mothers.”

In addition, mothers with pre-school age kids, nearly 40 percent, said they had high levels of work-family anxiety.

This Friday, I have a phone interview with Nell Merlino, Co-Founder, President & CEO of Count Me In. The mission of Count Me In is to promote economic independence and the growth of women owned businesses. I will post a full report after my interview, which I think will be very informative.
