“I liked learning. But after a while the learning gets lost in the mediocrity of it.”
Heather Morehouse had always done very well in school, and with a family full of academics, it was fully expected that she would get that college degree.
But she hated it.
So with only a few semesters to go, she decided to defy all social pressure and the feelings of being a failure that were sure to come with what she was about to do next: dropping out.
“This was on the heels of at least six years of school burnout. I really took it seriously for years. I did my best, I worked hard to get good grades. I just did it. I didn’t really know why.”
What was next was a career as a full-time homemaker in the Morehouse family.
“To me, it was a no-brainer to make the decision into building a home—being a home maker.”
Listen to Heather’s story of what the rollercoaster is like, of being a spouse to somebody who starts and runs startup companies.
