It started a decade ago as a conversation.
Our families had finished a shared lunch and Tim Hynes (co-founder of Spacemakers) and I were washing dishes by the kitchen sink. As usual, we found ourselves talking about work — the meaning of work, the way we work, and the value of making space.
With our hands in soapsuds, we talked about distraction. We talked about hyperactivity. We expressed our frustration at seeing colleagues struggle unnecessarily in work and life. And we knew we could do something about this.
So we asked our wives if they would support us in starting a business. They said yes (but insisted we finish the dishes first.)
