What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
The only frustrating item is not having enough time to do everything... everything else is 100% rewarding. Especially recently having people in 9 countries volunteering to promote Geeklist at meetups and hackathons. That's awesome.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
Underestimating the amount of time it takes to build, grow and gain traction and how much money it takes to get there.

Choose wisely your investors, co-founders and team.
