#016 Jeanette Bennett // Balancing motherhood and Running a Magazine

Jeanette Bennett runs her own business, juggling multiple magazines, and when sharing her favorite business books, we discussed how running a family is just like running a business, they go hand in hand!  She's got 5 kids, ages 5-20, and I loved picking her brain on all things parenting.  Raised the 2nd of 7 kids, her dad was even her high school teacher! See how that was for them...Then as an adult, from getting her masters degree as a young mom, teaching at a University, ambitious business skills, and managing it all for 20 years. I love the story she told about a mistake she felt she made when she went to school with her daughter to share her spotlight of the week. I think all parents can relate! I also love their Sunday phone rule, need to adopt this in my family! You'll have to listen to see how we are related, too, but we still haven't met in person! Here are a few of my favorite quotes from our chat: "Your actions are evidence of what you truly want." "See a nee, fill a need." "Your house is a factory, not a museum. You are raising and creating kids, it's going to be messy." Head to for the show notes of this Beyond Good Intentions podcast about her favorite books, favorite family games, and meal.
