What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
The most rewarding thing is that you can bring your big ideas to life. Plus you get the opportunity to bring a great team together and get them focused on a single purpose so that everyone shares the same idea and works passionately toward it. The frustration is sometimes covering all the details and making sure that they are all delegated and effectively communicated.
What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
Getting too excited and not thinking through everything carefully. Startups only have a limited amount of resources so getting distracted can be a killer.
What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
Focus on the most critical aspects of the main task. Make communication a priority for the team as its easy to assume that everyone sees things on the same path. Make sure your idea is big enough.
