Thank you: Start-up Spouses Everywhere

On this Valentines Day I wanted to take a minute and give thanks to the “Start-up Spouse”. While most attention (both good and bad) tends to focus on the “documented” founders of these start-ups, we all know there are very important people working behind the scenes to support and enable these founders.

Derrick and I both know that we would not be able to build our dream without the solid foundation and backing provided by our “Start-up Spouses”.

While the list is endless, I am going to limit this blog in the interest of time!

  1. Thank you for proofreading that blog, for the 100th time and still finding my mistakes.
  2. Thank you for managing and updating Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Foursquare.
  3. Thank you for listening to me talk about PDOExceptions, Unit Tests, and SQL queries and walking me through solving issues — even though you really don’t know what I am talking about!
  4. Thank you for staying up late and “pair programming” with me even though you have never written a line of code.
  5. Thank you for revising that investor deck for the 100th time.
  6. Than you for picking me up breakfast, lunch, and dinner and bringing it to the booth so I don’t have to eat the $10 concession stand hot dogs.
  7. Thank you for the late night coffee, Rockstar, Redbull, back massages, counseling session, and support group session.
  8. Thank you for being the companies Help Desk, Copywriter, CFO, Graphic Designer, HR Representative, and Chief Marketing Officer.
  9. Thank you for being my most important adviser, board member, and investor.
  10. Thank you for reminding me to be a Husband, Father, Brother, Son first!

While this thank you is meant for every Start-up and Entrepreneurial spouse out there, I want to give a special thank you to Laura and Jessica. Without you our dream would not survive.
