I am an entrepreneur and I have the most amazing wife in the world. The support I get from her is incredible. If you’re an entrepreneur and you’re working on a startup, you WILL need moral support (at a minimum) from your spouse-without it, well, I can’t even imagine how that would work.
An incredibly supportive spouse
The reason I’m writing this post is because I’m in awe of what my wife did to support my entrepreneurial efforts. People who follow my posts know my wife and I were expecting twins in March, and that I got my startup, WeMontage, into the gener8tor startup accelerator in Madison, WI.
What people don’t know is the twins, who were due the end of March, had to be unexpectedly delivered-because of complications-on January 2, 2013 at 29 weeks (full term is 40 weeks). The babies were very premature and extremely tiny and fragile. My son weighed 1lb 14 ozs.
If that wasn’t hard enough, I was to leave for Madison, WI to begin the startup accelerator for a weekend kick off the next day. I’d worked my ass off to get into the accelerator and the likelihood was the program was exactly what I needed to “accelerate” the business, and without it I would have struggled to get traction.
