Well, kids, being an entrepreneur isn’t easy. I just made my first sacrifice to the startup gods.
I’ve read a lot of books on entrepreneurship. They all talk about the personal cost of starting your own company. Most of the stuff they talk about, giving up a career, neglecting your kids, losing your life savings, don’t matter much to me. I hated my career. I don’t have kids. And since I don’t like spending money on meaningless objects, I can earn back my savings pretty quickly. I only had one vector for the startup gods to attack: my relationship with my girlfriend.
I moved to
She broke up with me this morning. She couldn’t handle the long distance thing. I felt it coming. I knew it might happen when I left. But I didn’t think it would.
It did. So if any VC asks me if I have skin in the game, well, I sacrificed the woman I was going to marry on the altar of the startup gods. I hope that’s enough.
Root for me, kids. I really need this.
