Chris Gladwin has been swimming with sea turtles in the Bahamas. That’s what you do to unwind after you sell your tech company for $1.3 billion.
Gladwin, 52, was volunteering on a research project that involved actually chasing the critters down in the water—no particular sweat for an endurance athlete whose hobbies include orienteering races that can take a few hours or a few days.
The trip to count sea turtles was no accidental adventure. Gladwin did a similar trip to recharge his batteries after selling his last startup, MusicNow, a subscription digital music service.
