A total of 379 respondents were selected from a population 25,122 members of the Nigeria union of tailors in Lagos, Oyo and Osun state using purposive, stratified and random sampling techniques. Primary data was collected through the use of structured self-administered questionnaire and structural equation model (SEM- PLS) was adopted for the analysis. The result shows work demands, wellbeing, family workload and spousal support with coefficients 0.316, -0.129, 0.048, and 0.457.

Therefore, the study concludes that work-life balance contributes significantly to the job satisfaction of women entrepreneurs. The study recommends that women entrepreneurs should effectively
manage their work and family roles by adopting work-life balance strategies to achieve job satisfaction and invariably life satisfaction.
