9781118443644: Startup Life: Surviving and Thriving in a Relationship with an Entrepreneur

"Real life insights on what it takes to make it in a relationship with an entrepreneur"Entrepreneurs are always on the go, looking for the next "startup" challenge. And while they lead very intensely rewarding lives, time is always short and relationships are often long-distance and stressed because of extended periods apart. Coping with these, and other obstacles, are critical if an entrepreneur and their partner intend on staying together--and staying happy.
In Startup Life, Brad Feld--a Boulder, Colorado-based entrepreneur turned-venture capitalist--shares his own personal experiences with his wife Amy, offering a series of rich insights into successfully leading a balanced life as a human being who wants to play as hard as he works and who wants to be as fulfilled in life and in work. With this book, Feld distills his twenty years of experience in this field to address how the village of startup people can put aside their workaholic ways and lead rewarding lives in all respects.

  • Includes real-life examples of entrepreneurial couples who have had successful relationships and what works for them.
  • Provides practical advice for adapting to change and overcoming the inevitable ups and downs associated with the entrepreneurial lifestyle.
  • Written by Brad Feld, a thought-leader in this field who has been an early-stage investor and successful entrepreneur for more than twenty years.
While there's no "secret formula" to relationship success in the world of the entrepreneur, there are ways to making navigation of this territory easier. Startup Life is a well-rounded guide that has the insights and advice you need to succeed in both your personal and professional life.

Review:

From the Author: 10 Quick Tips to Incorporate into Your Entrepreneurial Relationship Today

Brad Feld
  1. Never Schedule High Priorities Activities or Deadlines on Fridays: Doing so will likely create a scenario that drifts into Friday night, Saturday, and then Sunday. Always be realistic about the ebb and flow of the work cycle.
  2. Don't Bring Up Charged Topics at Bedtime: Your bedroom should be a sanctuary and a safe haven from the demands of the world. Never start a conflict when your you and your partner are in bed and dozing off to sleep.
  3. Laugh and Laugh Often: We believe you can never hug each other enough, say you love each other too much, or laugh too often.
  4. Apologize and Forgive: Practice apologizing when you hurt your partner's feelings. Offer forgiveness when your partner has been careless with your feelings. Know that you will try to be your best self but that you will often fail and will need to hone your apology skills.
  5. Have a Life Dinner Once a Month: Make a reservation right now at one of your favorite restaurants. Go out--just the two of you. Buy your significant other a gift. Turn off your cell phones and hand them to the other person. Spend a long slow dinner enjoying each other's company.
  6. Set Limits on Technology: You do not need to do just one more e-mail right before bedtime. You really don't. You need to sleep well and restore yourself and reset your brain chemistry during a nice night of rest. Those who need to take breaks from technology are often the least likely to do it.
  7. Live Where You Want to Live: Pick the place where you want to live and build your life around it. Our contributors to the book, Mark and Pam Solon, say "We believe it's important for young people embarking on their lives to realize that geography matters in your happiness quotient and that it can even out--weigh the highest-paying job opportunities."
  8. Life Is a Marathon, Not a Sprint: Another contributor to the book, Dave Jilk, says "If I could send my younger self a message from the future, it would tell me to treat my career more like a marathon than a sprint."
  9. Commit to Each Other's Dreams: "Recognizing that one's partner is pursuing their dream, they are satisfied down to their soul and, in so being satisfied, are that much more alive. That level of aliveness is a gift few partners can ever give, and successful couples recognize this," say Tim Enwall and Hillary Hall.
  10. Always Answer His or Her Calls! While it might seem like a small gesture, the cumulative impact of doing so on a regular basis shows your partner they matter to you.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Startup Life

"Many startup entrepreneurs know a strong network is key to success and happiness. But not all realize that the most important relationship of all is the one you have with your significant other. In his latest book, Brad Feld and his wife, Amy, draw upon their rich experience as entrepreneurs and investors—and most important, as a happily married couple—to show how to keep your romantic relationship strong while on the startup rollercoaster. Finally: a practical relationship book written by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs."
—Reid Hoffman, cofounder and chairman, LinkedIn, and coauthor, The Start-Up of You: Adapt to the Future, Invest in Yourself, and Transform Your Career

"Few people understand both the emotional and intellectual challenges of the entrepreneurial life better than Brad Feld and Amy Batchelor. Their collaboration is a gift as it lays out, with characteristic humor, intelligence, pragmatism, and—dare I say it—love, some of the most coherent and relevant survival strategies for entrepreneurs and those who have the guts to love them."
—Jerry Colonna, executive coach

"During my career, I've been involved in two rapidly growing companies—Google and Facebook. The challenge of balancing life and work that entrepreneurial couples face in the context of extremely fast growing companies is intense. Brad and Amy explore different aspects of this in detail and provide broad perspective and advice from over twenty-five years of living the startup life."
—Emily White, Senior Director, Facebook Mobile Business Development and Partnerships

"Brad and Amy have contributed a book like no other . . . practical, loving, and hard-won advice for focused entrepreneurs."
—Seth Godin, author and entrepreneur

"As an entrepreneur who has started and built a company and someone who often writes about other entrepreneurs, I've seen firsthand how challenging it can be to sustain the intense pace required to create a successful company and at the same time have a full and healthy life. I have struggled, and whenever I have, I have turned to Brad for guidance and wisdom. This book by Brad and Amy Batchelor brings you many of their tips, along with a deep perspective on the experience of being in a relationship with an entrepreneur."
—Om Malik, founder, GigaOM, and a technology writer

"Brad Feld and Amy Batchelor courageously draw back the curtain on life in entrepreneurship with rare honesty. If you're an entrepreneur or in a relationship with an entrepreneur, you'll be glad to know you're not alone. This book is loaded with stories of struggles and triumphs as well tons of practical tips for dealing with the high-octane high-uncertainty life that is entrepreneurship."
—Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup: How Today's Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses
