As an entrepreneur, I know that I'll miss some of Vera's moments as she grows up. There will be things that conflict between business and life, and there will be things I can't attend. I have to accept that truth, as brutal as it is.
What I've realized after talking to a few investor friends with young families is that there are some Vera moments I have to hold sacred. No matter what, I have to make whatever sacrifices to hold that line.
For me, I'm not ok missing her birthday. And I'll be flying over 9600 kilometers this Friday to celebrate her first.
