Why I love working with family people: Jeff Mackey over at 37 Signals claims the 20-something with no life is a “crutch” for startups. If you need a bunch of them to survive, your idea sucks.
That’s why I like working with the family man or woman. They come in as a cold bath of reality. When people have other obligations outside of work that they actually care more about than your probably-not-so-world-changing idea, the crutches are not available as an easy way out, and you’ll have to walk by the power of your good ideas and execution or you’ll fall fast and early. That’s a good thing!
