That whole mompreneur nonsense

Yeah, I get it. A mom who’s an entrepreneur. But just because there are two concepts being fused here doesn’t mean the words have to be as well. Mompreneur sounds clunky and awkward, and doesn’t even roll off the tongue nicely. It could just be the combination of two bilabial consonants that makes the word flow, well, not at all, but word itself isn’t even clever. You want to refer to a mom who has her own enterprise? Call her a businessmom, which at least takes off from “businessman.” Or better yet, just call her an entrepreneur and forgo the cutesy nicknames. No one’s calling dads with their own businesses “dadpreneurs.”
