From Report on Business:
Trusting in the strength of her body to swing on the trapeze at circus school for the first time was equal parts thrilling and terrifying for Catherine Connors.

I’m generally not a fan of mashed up hybrid neologisms; you know, those words that are created out of two unrelated words, like ‘freegan’ and ‘Brangelina.’ But in some cases, they can be useful – fun, even – inasmuch as they allow us to describe something for which there hasn’t previously been a proper name. ‘Mompreneur’ is one such word. The thing about a word like ‘mompreneur’, though, is that its use needs to be appropriate and relevant to what it’s describing, otherwise it very quickly becomes ridiculous.
So when is it okay to use the word ‘mompreneur,’ and when is it not?
