|Better Business Bureau|
As an advocate for businesses, your Better Business Bureau is in frequent contact with business owners looking to do the right thing for their clients and employees. An area of concern that continues to rise to the top is the Affordable Care Act – how it is impacting business today, how it will impact businesses moving forward and what businesses can do to meet the requirements of the act and avoid penalties. Heath care changes are a major concern, and a distraction from the purpose of your business. We hear your concern, and have a solution for your consideration. Make plans to join us:

Business Service Coordinator
Minority Business Development Division
We are pleased to welcome Meg Hirshberg for our February 12th Author Series this Wednesday. Meg will present For Better or For Work: A Survival Guide for Entrepreneurs and Their Families.
Family members are always, for better and sometimes for worse, caught up in the vortex of any entrepreneurial business. Meg delves into the challenges that arise when a couple is married to a business as well as to each other.
She proposes strategies and solutions for coping with these common problems, based on her own experience and those of the hundreds of entrepreneurs and spouses she interviewed for the book.
Meg worked in her husband Gary’s business, Stonyfield Yogurt, for the first several years of their marriage. Stonyfield took nine painful years to reach profitability, and now, worth about $370 million in sales, it is the largest organic yogurt company in the world.
After Meg stopped working in the business, she wrote two yogurt cookbooks, and launched her writing career.
Her work has appeared in Yankee, New Hampshire Magazine, and the Boston Globe Magazine, among others. She is a contributing editor and former columnist for Inc. magazine. Meg’s column, “Balancing Acts,” explored the intersection of family and business and work/life balance issues in an entrepreneurial setting.
