  • 20. Start - Up Life TAKE  A  VACATION   “Really,  take  one.  When  you  leave  your  team  to   execute  on  their  own,  you’ll  see  where  all  the  holes  in   your  company  are,  and  then  you  can  work  on  patching   them.  You  should  be  able  to  leave  your  company  for  a   few  weeks  without  them  needing  you.”   Bhavin  Parikh  |  CEO,  Magoosh  Test  Prep,  @magoosh   GET  BAREFOOT  IN  THE  PARK   “Think  about  it:  A  person  takes  off  his  shoes  when  he   gets  home  and  gets  comfortable,  which  is  the  exact   atmosphere  that  helps  early-­‐stage  startups  succeed.   Early  employees  need  to  feel  at  home  at  the  office,   and  they  need  to  bond  with  their  teammates  like   family.  Don’t  allow  shoes  at  the  office,  and  employees   will  stay  later  in  the  night  and  build  a  closer  bond  with   their  teammates.”    Jun  Loayza  |  President,  Ecommerce  Rules,   @JunLoayza   DON’T  TRY  TO  BOIL  THE  OCEAN   ”  It’s  a  great  visual  analogy,  and  it  perfectly   encapsulates  a  major  challenge  for  any  startup   founder.  You’ve  got  to  take  the  challenge  on,  one  gulp   at  a  Cme.”   Brent  Beshore  |  Owner/CEO,  adventur.es,   @BrentBeshore   WORKING  OUT  WILL  SAVE  YOU  TIME   “I’ve  found  I’m  so  much  more  efficient  aEer  I  work  out   that  I  always  gain  producCve  Cme,  not  lose  it.  Seems   counter-­‐producCve  for  many,  but  my  startup  founder   friends  who  don’t  exercise  regularly  find  it  harder  to   stay  focused,  tougher  to  be  creaCve,  difficult  to   maintain  a  good  diet,  and  are  just  less  happy  in   general.”   Derek  Flanzraich  |  CEO  and  Founder,  GreaXst,   @greaXst
