I like the article but I do take issue that family dinners are low-risk/low-reward.

Yes, family-dinners is not suited as low-risk/low-return. I meant for family-dinners to represent a more “stable” option versus the “chaotic” life of startups. I can see how this example could cause some confusion. Thanks for pointing that out.

Also, agree that startup life can be soul-sucking. Which is why I’m aiming for more of a “life-style business” that values the quality of work versus a growth-fueled nightmare that is a “Silicon Valley startup.”

Thanks for your opinion!
