There are mom’s out their busting their buns running their own businesses and raising their children at the same time. It is such a large part of our culture these days that their is a term for it: mompreneur. The definition of a mompreneur according to Investopedia is, “A woman who runs her own business while taking care of her children full time”.
The reason more mompreneurs are popping up is due to the flexibility that modern day parents need to help raise a family. Costs of living have risen and paid maternity leave is hard to find, but with the introduction of the internet and personal computers, running your own business from home has never been easier. This is why you will likely find a mompreneur working from her laptop at the kitchen table while her kids are taking a nap or responding to texts and phone calls while breastfeeding…. That’s what I do!
“There are 10.6 million women-owned businesses in the United States, generating $2.5 trillion in annual revenue, according to the Center for Women’s Business Research. Women are starting businesses at nearly twice the rate of men. And women with children are jumping in–each with a different business goal, a different family situation and a different strategy to balance it all.”– Entrepeneur
If you are a mom like me and looking for a way to create your own business from home that gives you the flexibility to work your own schedule, from wherever you like AND have a positive impact on the health and wellness of others, than starting a business with Shaklee is a great fit for you.
Shaklee: Best Job Opportunity for Stay At Home Moms
The reason why I say that Shaklee is the best job opportunity for stay at home moms and those who are looking at being mompreneurs is that Shaklee is a true family business. You get total control with your Shaklee business to decide when you will work, how you will work, where you will work and who you will work with. You can’t find more freedom than that!
Their is no glass celling or corporate ladder climbing. You do not have to wait for someone to reward you with a bonus or raise. You have the power to create opportunities for yourself.
In addition to the freedom and flexibility that Shaklee provides for moms, is the products in which you share with others. Shaklee has been around for over 60 years and puts the health and wellness of people and the planet first. All of Shaklee’s products undergo intense clinical trials and testing for purity and potency.
The Shaklee product line has something for everyone with a vitamin and supplement line, beauty products, sports nutrition, organic home cleaners, baby products and a revolutionary weight-loss program.
I have seen first hand my family and friends health transformed by Shaklee products and I couldn’t feel happier that I was able to help in a positive way.

Stay At Home Mom Job Description For Shaklee Leaders
Key traits of a Shaklee mompreneur:
- Be a full time student
- Show up for the opportunity for growth (Everything is an opportunity)
- Have the intention to learn from every situation and challenge yourself
- Honor what you say you are going to do
- Effort always has a return and experience can never be taken away
What Do I Do?
The majority of what you do with your Shaklee business is just sharing with people what Shaklee has to offer and how it can transform their health. There are opportunities to host events if that is something you like. If you don’t like event… no worries you don’t have to host events. This chart below gives you great suggestions for ways you can run your business based on best practices of successful Shaklee leaders.
In addition to growing your income, you also can earn car bonuses, trips to fun and exciting locations like Cabo, Kenya and Italy. Did I mention you can also earn opportunities to take your family along with you? You and your partner act as a team so if you earn a trip, you both get to go. I know my husband loves this perk. He grew up with his mom (also a Shaklee business leader) going on family trips paid for by Shaklee.
How to get started with your Shaklee business
There are a few different ways that mom’s get started with Shaklee and creating their own Shaklee business.
- Some moms choose to try out the products by joining as a member.
- Other mom’s know that they are ready to build their business and sign up with a Gold PAK. (This is how I got started)
The Gold PAKs are really your best deal as you get an amazing discount on products for you to try, sell or share. It helps you know more about the products you will share with others and helps you discover just why so many people love Shaklee.
Once you sign up, you will receive ongoing one on one support from me and the Kern Wellness team as well as knowledge and support from Shaklee business builders across the country.
