While I know there are more pressing items to be sharing (Gen Y Capital Partners and the White House Student Relief headlines, our online meeting information, etc.), I had to do a quick writeup on this article, published today on ForbesWoman by Meg Casserly (fantastic writer),titled “Why I Won’t Date An Entrepreneur: A New Series.”
In the article Meg reviews her experience in dating men who have startups, which I’m not sure to laugh about or be concerned by, but at a certain level I can definitely relate to it. While I’m not dating, I do have a baby, my darling husband, and a business that I am personally juggling.
