Just signed a dream offer for a Silicon Valley startup and making 32.9% more money, no travel and my dream role. Happiness. Satisfaction. WLB. Sleep. It's out there people. Don't lose hope!

WLB and sleep don’t commonly get associated with startup life. The last startup I did, I slept in the office more than once when I worked so late I could not safely stay awake for the commute home. I definitely averaged more hours per week working than I did in consulting. I wish you luck with your new adventure though. I don’t regret my startup experience at all and I’m about to do another myself.

What an inspirational mother.

Never have I had to worry this much about going to the grocery store. The reaction of society here towards these issues is also dismal. Is it worth it?
