Being an entrepreneur comes with lots of responsibility. So does being a mom.

This Mother's Day, we celebrate women who have succeeded in both roles, simultaneously nurturing a growing family and an emerging business. Following in the footsteps of iconic women entrepreneurs such as Mary Kay Ash (Mary Kay Cosmetics) and Debbi Fields (Mrs. Fields' cookies), most of the six women featured in this slide show did double-duty from the beginning -- while one waited until her business was well-established before becoming a mom.

"Mothers have all the critical skills they need for running a business," suggests Tamara Monosoff, entrepreneur and author of Secrets of Millionaire Moms. "They are simultaneously the family manager, the bookkeeper, the organizer, the planner . . . all of these skills are transferable to business."

Here, these women share how they’ve managed to balance their work and home lives, while building multimillion dollar companies.
