'My work and personal life blend into one'

Name: Andy Moeck, 41
Business: MOEO, Los Angeles, Calif.

We build games for mobile devices that allow people to play against each other in real-time sporting events. We have a baseball app -- called Hit-no-Hit. And we're building apps for football, soccer, UFC, cricket and golf. We started this company two years ago, and it's beginning to take off.

My average day looks like this:

5:30 a.m. I get up and get a lot done because the house is quiet. I catch up on tech news and start responding to emails. I work mostly from home, though we have shared office space that we use for meetings.

7:30 a.m. Take a break to get my two kids ready and drive them to school.

8:30 a.m. Back to my home office to catch up with the five people I work with. Everyone is wearing multiple hats. I may be the CEO, but one day I'm out raising money, and another I'm working as the sales guy talking to clients. Then I sit down and write code or whatever needs to be done.

1:30 p.m. I take a quick break to pick up my son, and spend some time with him. Then I might watch a sporting event for work. I'll also send emails, test the apps, and write more code.

6:00 p.m. Dinner with family. I help with homework and put kids to bed.

8:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. Back to work. I have a standing call with all the MOEO people. The kids are sleeping, and it's when we can get together and chat.

My work and personal life all blend into one. While it can be hard to disconnect and not work all the time, I'm realizing now that's it's important to do so.
