Meg Hirshberg Discusses Balancing Family and Work on Startup Radio

Author Meg Hirshberg will appear on Startup Radio to discuss with Charles Lee Mudd Jr. her new book “For Better or For Work: A Survival Guide for Entrepreneurs and Their Familes” and the struggle to balance building a business with building a family.  Entrepreneurs and others involved in building a business know all to well the time commitment required to successfully implement the potential for corporate growth.  At the same time, the time that should be invested in building and maintaining a marriage and family often appears elusive.  How do we balance the demands and pleasures of our business with our family?  Where should the time be allocated?  What strategies can be implemented?

For those not yet engaged in entrepreneurialism and running a business, the allure of running a business, being your own boss, setting one’s own hours, corporate growth, and the ever-rare tale of riches earned often blind one to the realities of joining a startup and being an entrepreneur.  What should potential entrepreneurs know about the hardships of entrepreneurialism?  What can they do to manage their family commitments and jump into the startup world?

These questions and more will be discussed as Meg Hirshberg appears on Startup Radio on Monday, July 30, 2012.

Meg Hirshberg is the author of “For Better or For Work: A Survival Guide for Entrepreneurs and Their Familes.”  She has been a columnist for Inc. Magazine since May 2009 when the magazine launched her “Balancing Acts” column.  In “Balancing Acts,” Meg Hirshberg discusses issues related to balancing “building a company” and “building a family.”  Her column followed immense response to her article “Hitched to Someone Else’s Dream” which appeared in the September 2008 issue of Inc.  For, as the spouse of Gary Hirshberg, co-founder of Stonyfield Yogurt, she knows all to well the hardships facing the entrepreneurial family.
