Refreshingly honest conversations about the 'Founder Life'

Truly appreciate this podcast for all the real conversations Sherry and Rob have with each other and their guests. And even more so because they cover topics typically skipped over or avoided alltogether in startup/founder discussions (ex. the impact of entrepreneurship on families, maintaining a sex life, and mental health and suicide).

Extremely helpful...

Being a successful founder isn't all about the best marketing & product strategies. There is so much to keep in check outside our businesses that have to do with healthy relationships and a proper mental state. This podcast has both useful founder husband/wife discussions (hosts Rob & Sherry) as well as some great founder interviews. If you run any type of business, this is much too important to ignore.

Don't miss Sherry's book "The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Keeping Your Sh*t Together" either.

An Honest & Helpful Look at marriage, life, and family in the start up world.

I am so thankful to Rob and Sherry for simply being honest about their lives and their struggles on this podcast. Rob's background as a starter (not that Sherry isn't or doesn't also have the knowledge) has been super helpful for me and Sherry's knowledge of Psychology have been huge in my own life and family in terms of learning and growth. Thank you guys so much. Also, keep up the night owl episodes. Loved it. They add a bit more laughter and silliness that is fun occassionally. :)
