Fifty-seven percent of the surveyed mompreneurs are 40 years old or older. And most are married too -- 79 percent of female respondents have a spouse.

In fact, a whopping 95 percent say they have a partner who brings in income.

To start, most cut back on their hobbies in order to follow their entrepreneurial dreams. Eighty-eight percent spend less than three to four hours a week on hobbies.
