Enplug on the cover of Marie Claire UK

This definitely brought a lot of laughter into Enplug’s office: Gwyneth Paltrow and Enplug sharing the April cover of Marie Claire UK magazine. Can you guess which article title is referring to our story?

Yup, our article was titled “Sleeping With The Boss: Inside Silicon Valley’s 24-hour offices.” I share a home with 12 (about 1/3 of our team) teammates in a house in Bel Air (about 10 minutes from our office). But that title sure if catchy! I’m glad my grandma doesn’t know English because that might have made her blush.

The article is well-written and intricately describes our family-like culture:

It’s nearly midnight and Enplug’s marketing guru Colin strums quietly on a guitar at the dining table. conversation seamlessly switches between complex coding talk and musical theatre. At times the staff appear to speak in their own language, peppered with techy acronyms and in-jokes.

And if they really do become billionaires in five years’ time, they still plan to live together. “We’ll just get a bigger house,” says Brenna. “With an infinity pool. And a bar!”

Of course, everyone’s mind will naturally drift to how people’s personal lives work. The article addresses that:

There is one seemingly inevitable by-product of colleagues living in such close proximity: the office romance. At Enplug, it’s power couple Tina, 33, and her husband of two years, Bruno, 37. “We actually met at Microsoft and moved to Enplug together,” explains Tina, who manages Bruno and nine other coders. “He has the same boss at work and home, ” she jokes.

They even a few mini profiles on people in the Enplug House:

Radio Interview On Women Entrepreneurs

I had a fantastic time with two fellow women CEOs recording a radio segment for CBS Radio News LA on women entrepreneurs. Our host is the incredibly smart and witty Ken Rutkowski. These two women have very cool businesses. One is a PR agency called The Make Agency. The other women’s company is fascinating-they provide a service to help you apologize. You can pay for certain packages depending on the level of “bad” the mistake you made was that you need to apologize for. This company is called The Apology Concierge.
