Meg Hirshberg joined Charles Lee Mudd Jr. to discuss maintaining balance between buiding a business as an entrepreneur and maintaining a viable family life as a spouse and parent.  Given limited time, entrepreneurs often find they lack the time to both build and maintain a business, on the one hand, and ensure marital and family stability, on the other hand.  Where should time be allocated?  How do we balance competing interests? Join us to discuss these compelling issues that affect anyone in business and their families.

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.
