What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
Everything is frustrating at times and if you wait 10 minutes it can suddenly be completely rewarding! The creative process is so out of the box yet many of the processes are clearly in the box, so it does not always fit the establishment especially around fundraising.
What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
They think they have to do everything and know everything. Do what you do best and find the other people who do what they do best.
What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
Perseverance is absolutely the secret sauce to success.
Do not get lost in the HOW, the how will present itself, stay true to the vision.
Surround yourself with people who believe in you.
