Startup Life vs Faith Life

This piece from a not-too-ancient Wired, Deliver Us, Lord, From the Startup Life, has a glib headline, but does try to cover some interesting topics – notably, how does one start or operate a business in keeping with a central code of ethics, without burning oneself out.

It’s interesting to see this bound to "startup life" (though it’s clearly good target coverage), as faith-aligned businesses are certainly prominent and longstanding. Also missing – how would these discussions and deliberations be altered (or would they?) by different faiths? For a flippant example, how does Marie Kondo’s animist practices cover her recently sold business? What of business people who practice within islamic credit facilities, etc?
