Vator’s community is the home to entrepreneurs who embrace their passion and follow their dreams. Our profiles allow members to express themselves by sharing their interests, lessons learned, as well as bits and pieces of their roller-coaster journey.
These profiles give entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase themselves and tell their story. So if you are an entrepreneur, a serial entrepreneur, or even an aspiring entrepreneur, we'd like to hear from you.

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?
- I trust too easily so have learned how to always ask for references
- 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.
- I almost have no patience when work doesn't get done. I learned how to be a little more patient.
