What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
1. Learn your strengths and weaknesses. Focus on what you do best and hire what you don't do well.
2. Be passionate on your project, but remember to be humbled to remember to get feedback / criticism on an outsiders perspective. Talking to people that are not close to your project is the best way to learn, evan if you don't make exactly what they ask for.
3. Surround yourself with people smarter than yourself. Never stop selling yourself!
