I recently wrote a post about how to manage relationships when you’re at a startup or are busy executive. It was based on an excellent book I had just read by Brad Feld & Amy Batchelor (his wife).
I had images in my brain of all of the stresses I had placed on my wife in the heyday of my startups. We once took a “vacation” in Spain with Tania’s parents but we were in the midst of an M&A transaction so this photo is how my wife & her family remember me on that trip.
Anyway, as I winnowed my way through the comments section of my blog post on relationships I realized my own wife has posted a response!
As she is quite accomplished in her own right so I take her opinion very seriously.
She never set out to be a guest poster on this blog, but I did get her permission to publish one previous note she had written – advice for young employees early in their careers – and it was such a hit I thought I’d publish another piece under her byline (with some minor additions from me)…….
