LA has something for everyone: natural mix of industries (entertainment, fashion, design, gaming, etc.), gorgeous outdoor scenery, neighborhoods with different flavors, and lots of diverse companies — all which I find really exciting. I’ve heard tales of going to the beach, snow skiing, and hiking in the desert all in the same day, and it’s also refreshing not to have to talk about tech all the time. LA gets bonus points for the weather as well. All of this fuels interesting, mainstream focused products, which brings together people from many different disciplines in new ways.
When you ask me about having it all, or how am I going to manage my kids, I seriously think that you are insane. Because in my head, I can’t imagine a scenario where you trust someone with millions of dollars to run a business but think that they don’t know how to deal with childcare.
