Business journalist Meg Cadoux Hirshberg’s article “Hitched to Someone Else’s Dream” appeared in the September 2008 issue of Inc. magazine. She described the early, stressful beginnings of Stonyfield Farms, the company her husband co-founded. Though it is now the world’s largest organic yogurt firm, nine years of hard work passed before it made a profit. That article and the subsequent response from entrepreneurial couples and families led Hirshberg to write this book, where the advice ranges from the truly informed inside perspective to a few pretty obvious tips. getAbstract recommends her hilarious, heartbreaking, essential guide and its many family business war stories to current and aspiring entrepreneurs, their spouses and families, and other busy professionals seeking work-life balance.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to work with or around your spouse and children,
- How to seek funding from family, and
- How to handle difficult issues like illness and divorce.
