What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

Frustrating: People tend to think that being an entrepreneur is cool .. and easy. It maybe cool but it's not easy. And it's cool only some of the times.

Rewarding: you get the chance to build something from scratch to a full product. It's kind of like giving birth ..

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Tend to think that plans are there to stay, does not prepare for the change and does not adopt to it once it comes.

Want to change the world? be ready to move with the change ..

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
  1. The term "not possible" can not take space in the entrepreneur 's vocabulary. 
  2. Money usually runs out much faster than anticipated 
  3. The entrepreneur's path is long. You must come prepared.
