Publisher Description

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-distant 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 addresses 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 business life.

    Excellent! A must read for anyone.

    Both my wife and I are in start-ups, second time for me, so we were really excited when this book came out. Amy and Brad really open up about the struggles and emotions that come with the entrepreneur life, and the insight to how they dealt with those struggles is very helpful. They bring in stories from many other couples and you soon realize that what you are going through is not unusual, and that others came through the ups and downs. They give some good practical advice on how to create habits that will nurture a relationship. Great thanks to them both for being vulnerable enough to write this book.
