Your co-founder: Your family


In this blog post, Fred Wilson is dead-on about your family being the co-founder of an entrepreneur’s business.

Startup life can be brutal.  The people busting their butts to create something from nothing sacrifice a lot.  But the families of the people at a startup also suffer and sacrifice.

An entrepreneur’s spouse (or significant other) being understanding, supportive, and often times directly helpful to said entrepreneur can often be the difference in a startup’s success and (perhaps more importantly) a family’s happiness.
