Abstract With the increasing number of women engaging in entrepreneurial undertakings, it is deemed relevant to capture the entrepreneurial competencies and work – life balance experiences of rural women entrepreneurs. Using the descriptive approach, the study found that rural women entrepreneurs in the Philippines are strong in the goal setting, information seeking, and systematic planning and monitoring competencies. It was further found that they are generally able to maintain work – life balance through proper time management and striving to spend more time with family members through a wide array of activities done together with their spouses and children.
