1. From Fast Company’s Sex, Love and Whether Either Can Survive A Startup:
"Stereotypes notwithstanding, plenty of evidence suggests the young, Type-A, tech-savvy self-promoter who regularly sleeps alone on the office couch isn’t your typical founder. Indeed, 70% were married when they became entrepreneurs and 65% were over 30 when they founded their first company. “
But according to capitalists and authors of Startup Life: Surviving and Thriving in a Relationship with an Entrepreneur, Brad Feld and his wife Amy Batchelor, successful relationships while at a startup require making time: “You do not need to do just one more email right before bedtime. Its repeated over and over that entrepreneurship is an ‘all-in’ experience and the partner of an entrepreneur has to accept that he is playing second fiddle to the entrepreneur’s startup,” they write. “We completely reject this notion. We reject the idea that the more you work, the better the outcome. We reject that time spent on work matters more than having a fulfilling life.” Instead, they contend, “both you and your startup will be more successful if you have a full experience on this planet.”
Fun facts:Percentage of Everlane employees that are married: 17%In serious relationships: 43%Percentage who turn off devices to make time with their significant other: 14%(The rest are working on it.)
