Did you go all in on remote CEOing pre-wife and pre-kids, or the reverse? And how was your schedule and/or productivity impacted with the change?
I met my wife after I’d been a CEO for a while, but before I was a remote CEO (and, yes, we’ve now been married a long time). Kids came after I’d been remote for a few years. I might have data that would confirm or deny this, but my impression is that the main effect of having a family is that my schedule got more regular, and e.g. I always break for dinner at 6 pm. As far as kids are concerned: probably the most obvious effect is that they’ve been very inspirational in encouraging me to do things.
