For Better Or For Work by Meg Cadoux Hirshberg Review

For Better Or For Work by Meg Cadoux Hirshberg Review

For Better Or For Work By Meg Hirshberg For Better or For Work: A Survival Guide for Entrepreneurs and Their Familiesis a really interesting book. I had never really thought about how hard it must be for the families of entrepreneurs.

I did know that the statistics say that a very high percentage of new businesses fail but for some reason it never occured to me that the people who started those business went broke too.

The author writes about her own expieriences married to the founder of Stonyfield Yogurt and also adds some stories from other entreprenuers and their families. Both the successful ones and the ones that failed.

My husband was thinking about starting a business of his own. After reading this book I’m not sure I could handle that. Maybe an already established one, but even then it wouldn’t be easy.

If you are your family are thinking of starting a business…read this first. Then you will know some of the things likely to come your way…and can be a bit prepared.

From the back cover and front cover flap :

Discover how to build a successful business and follow your passions without sacrificing healthy family relationships to the financial and emotional rollercoaster that is entrepreneurship.

Insight, hope, and strategies for building a business and a family at the same time.

How does someone who is obsessed live peacefully with others who are not? That question summarizes the quandary faced by company founders and their families. To answer it, author Meg Cadoux Hirshberg examines the impact—for better and for worse—of entrepreneurial businesses on families and relationships, and vice versa.

Practically, this is a vital guide to navigating the emotional and logistical terrain of business-building while simultaneously enjoying a fulfilling family life. From the trials of co-habiting with a home-based business to the queasy necessity of borrowing money from family and friends to the complexities of intergenerational succession, no topic is taboo.

Psychologically, 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. Meg draws on the struggles and triumphs she and husband Gary Hirshberg experienced as he built Stonyfield Yogurt, and also shares powerful stories and insights from other families, gathered through hundreds of interviews.

For Better or For Work will remind you that the long hours and late nights—spent on the business or with the family—are worth the effort and will give you tools for making both endeavors successful.

You Could Be A Model According To Alicia Kaback

Alycia Kaback runs Kaback Model Management, a commercial/print management company based in New York City and Philadelphia. This is a sister company of their runway division.

Their models have appeared in TV shows such as Blue Bloods and Gossip Girl as well as motion pictures such as Men in Black 3 and Transformers.

Runway modeling makes up only 2% of the industry. The other 98% is commercial/print work such as the kid in the Roy’s R Us ad or the older guy in the Advil commercial.  There are in fact many modeling jobs for people who are not runway thin and 6 feet tall.

I really had no idea that there was so much modeling work out there.  All those ads on TV and in magazines and even online need models and actors.  That adds up to lots of opportunity.

I never really wanted to be a model myself.  I feel too self conscious when people are looking at me…as if I dribbled something down my shirt without noticing.  Some of my friends did some modeling for local stores back in high school. They probably had no idea that they could make a living doing that.

Modeling isn’t easy and the hardest part is finding the work. That is where the agent/manager comes in. They find modeling jobs and casting calls and match them to the models. Having a  good well connected management company on your side can be the difference between success and failure.

Kaback Model Management is looking for some fresh faces they can turn into successful models. They have clients in the United States and abroad and placement opportunities worldwide. So if you were dreaming of modeling…check them out.
