Having worked in startups most of my career, I can honestly say that the hardest part is that you sacrifice relationships for your unrealistic goals.
Only around 4% of companies make it to 10 years, and most of those won’t be unicorns, so you will toil for low pay and long hours with little to show, even if you are part of the successful few.
Finding work-life balance is hard.
