43 – The value of creating family-preneurs with Meg Brunson

How do ‘mom-preneurs’ balance building their passion business and still raise healthy and happy kids? Or, on the flip side of the coin, have you ever hoped to instill an entrepreneurial spirit in your kids?

We chat with Meg Brunson, podcast host of the FamilyPreneur and a super mom to four girls. Meg never set out to be an entrepreneur. A former Facebook employee, she decided to supplement her income with a side business. Meg talks with us about her journey, how this changed her family, and the lessons she and her family learned along the way.
