What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
The most rewarding is to have a great idea different of all existent and that can be very usefull for people's lives. The most frustrating I believe it would be when someone takes your idea and try to exactly copy it for money only.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
To think that they're the only ones having a good idea in the world and everybody will love it, and then get emotionally involved with it more than the reason allows.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
Try at most to learn from the others' mistakes. If it's not possible, at least give a few steps and try to learn by your own mistakes.
