Startup Life

Surviving and Thriving in a Relationship with an Entrepreneur

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
'One book every entrepreneur should own...a book that is far more important than most management books you will read...an enjoyable read and one I'll bet you'll refer back to rather than read once and file away'(Entrepreneur Country, February 2013)
'Brad Feld is clearly something of a legend...if you want to know how your idol lives this is a great read...an extremely candid memoir... where the book comes into its own is in its honest discussion of the nuts and bolts of living with your own business...If you've just stated dating an entrepreneur read this book.' (Management Today, April 2013) 'This is a must-read for anyone struggling to keep their relationship and business simultaneously on track.' (Talk Business, May 2013)
