For that reason, The Perc cafe owner Sarah Henderson and Zaibatsu Hair Art owner Jaimee Smith have established a support group for mothers who are also business owners in Dunedin.
"Basically, it's a great way to network and talk through issues affecting business," Miss Henderson said.
"We're all quite young and we have good lifestyles - but we work hard.
"We've all got children as well, and juggling them with work has its own set of complications."
However, being able to talk through the issues affecting businesswomen and offer support was important, she said.
"Life is difficult for us and it's nice to have a network of support - someone to go to when things aren't working out the way they should."
Miss Henderson said the group would be family-oriented and members would be welcome to bring their children with them to the evening meetings.
"It's going to be pretty casual," she said.
"We will sit around with a couple of glasses of wine and share."
At the moment, the as yet un-named group had 15 members.
But more were welcome to join, she said.
The group's first meeting would be held at 7pm on October 18, at Starfish, in St Clair.
