It’s nearly Valentine’s Day so it only seems natural that I do a story about the business of love.

Many successful women entrepreneurs, from Erika Bliss of Qliance to Kara Goldin of Hint to Paula Long of DataGravity, have told me how important a supportive partner (personal not business) is to their success. Sheryl Sandberg writes about this in her book Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead.

This story not only tells you how applying a tried-and true-methodology from one industry to another creates a multi-million dollar business, but how to find the love of your life.
