7 Tenets Shape How This Leader Builds His Family

It’s a rarity to find executives who are required – and able – to manage both the strategic and tactical components of business.  In most cases, the strategy is delegated to the tactical team, right?

Not the case for a business owner.  It’s all in their hands.  And with it, comes enormous responsibility and stress.

As part of on-going executive interview series, this week’s spotlight focuses on John Hearn, Managing Principal and Owner of The Benefits Company, headquartered in Atlanta, GA.

John Hearn not only carries the enormous responsibilities of managing a robust client base, but the challenge of navigating a complex industry that’s been riddled with change, regulation and scrutiny.

So, how does an executive with this much responsibility at the office find time and energy for his marriage and family?

7 big principles.  And a lot of discipline.

You can read all about John’s approach to balancing the demands of building both his business and his family right here….
