Nina Jacobson was at the hospital with her partner, who was in labor with their third child, when she got the shocking news that she was being fired from her job as president of the Walt Disney Motion Picture Group. Jacobson went on to start her own production company, Color Force—the studio behind The Hunger Games. Walking briskly through a back lot, Jacobson, 50, spoke with Real Simple about career bumps (this was her third firing) and what she’s learned about balance (or lack thereof) by being her own boss.
