Nannypreneur Series Offers Advice and Inspiration for Aspiring and Current Nanny Moguls
By Jennifer Kuhn
Fewer things require more ambition than working full time raising (someone else’s) children and launching or managing an entrepreneurial endeavor. Let’s face it: spending eight or more hours with a houseful of youngsters can leave a person feeling utterly exhausted, physically drained, and ready to mentally check out (hello, Netflix, my old friend…). Over the years we’ve met and befriended so many full-time nannies with a bustling side hustle. Often referred to as “nannypreneurs,” they work hard to build a name for themselves in businesses in a variety of fields. And get this! Many of these business pursuits have nothing to do with #NannyLife.
This summer, Nanny Magazine will foster that spirit of innovation and entrepreneurialism, providing support and inspiration for nanny-owned business efforts, and celebrating the business successes of our fellow nanny community entrepreneurs. Stay on the lookout for our article series (5 parts!) to support fine-tuning business acumen the aspiring (or practicing) creative nanny mogul. Here’s what to expect:
