Howdy Y'all! For a few Mondays' now at Cool Beans Box, we've been enthusiastically showcasing Texas mompreneurs as a way to recognize the hardworking mammas doing business in the Great State of Texas. Are you unfamiliar with the term? Let's do a quick review.
According to Investopedia, mompreneur is a term describing women who run their own businesses while also acting as a full time parent. Mompreneurs are more likely to run a business out of the home than out of a commercial building. The term is a combination of the words "mom" and "entrepreneur". Cool beans indeed!
Here are this week's amazingly talented Texas Mompreneurs who are achieving the American dream by working hard as artisans and small business owners. We definitely encourage you to follow and support their work.

With Camp Pixel Project, Tracy and team facilitate a 5 day instructional camp for kids combining photography + graphic design located in The Woodlands, Texas. All campers will learn important photography principles, such as “aperture” and “ISO.” They will use their DSLR camera to apply those principles through various hands-on activities, games, and photo scavenger hunts.
