What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
Sometimes, you can't see what's at the end of the tunnel. You don't now what your project will look like later on. This is also the thrill of it. You just gotta go with your guts and keep on with it.
What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
- being afraid that "you can't do it" or "your idea is not good enough", which leads to lack of action
What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
- talk to everyone about your idea
- Don't be shy. Take your chances. Approach people. Ask for things
- growing too fast after initial success (watch out for employee morale)
