What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
Frustrating 48 hour days and rewarding when you are told that you have one of the most beautiful and refreshing websites by dozens of people

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
Definitely making a mistake of trying to launch with a bucketful of features when you should put out a few and test it in Beta

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

  1. I trust too easily so have learned how to always ask for references
  2. I run away with ideas and before long I have built this gigantic platform in my head which I have learned over a period of time to trim and cut back.
  3. I almost have no patience when work doesn't get done. I learned how to be a little more patient.
