"For Better or For Work", Panel discussion and book signing with "INC," magazine contributing editor, Meg Hirshberg

04/11/2012 6:00 pm

Wednesday April 11th, 2012, 6pm at Red River Theatres.

Stonyfield Farm is a true New England success story, a tale of hard work, triumphs, and commitment to a cause and a lifestyle, ending in a $370 million-dollar success. But there was another side to the story: that of the laborious farm work, long hours, financial set-backs, and the stresses that running a business can place on familial relationships of all kinds.

Join us for a panel discussion and presentation, as Meg Hirshberg, of Stonyfield Farm and contributing editor to INC, magazine, leads us through what it takes to have an "entrepreneurial marriage" succeed, and through some of the funny and interesting stories that brought her to where she is today.

Refreshments will be on hand; yogurts from Stonyfield and yam-based dips and spreads from local Yummy Yammy.

This book is a reminder that no entrepreneurial family trudges the hard trail of company-building alone. If you have embarked on such an enterprise, you and your spouse will find comfort and guidance in the experiences of others like you. If you have not yet started a business, this book will allow you to take a good hard look before leaping. If you are curious about this local success story, this book is honest and insightful. Meg draws on the struggles and triumphs that she experienced with her husband Gary as he built Stonyfield Yogurt, and shares powerful stories and insights from other families, gathered through hundreds of interviews. One thing is certain: the process is participative as both partners have an equal stake in the future happiness of both their businesses and their family lives.

Meg Hirshberg, author

Meg Hirshberg’s book will become the What to Expect When You’re Expecting for entrepreneurs and their life partners. If my wife and I had had a copy before we launched Honest Tea, we would have been better prepared to cope with the trials and occasional absurdities of developing a struggling beverage enterprise, a family and a marriage all at the same time. –Seth Goldman, president, TeaEO and co-founder, Honest Tea
