What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
There are a lot of frustrations but I dont think you can have rewards without it. Furthermore with innovation comes frustration. Probably one of the things that is most frustrating is trying to figure out the best way to accomplish a task. With so many languages and directions you can take to solve a technical problem, it can be hard to figure out which one offers the most advantages.
Without a doubt, seeing your dreams become reality is the most rewarding aspect of being an entrepreneur. Having an idea in your head and then being able to see it and use it and then to have others be able to experience it, is the best.
What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
I am not sure what the top mistake entrepreneurs make as a whole but I think a lack of dedication is probably a big one. If me and my partner were not totally dedicated to the plight of Diggsy.com, I do not think we would be where we are today. Having an idea is not enough, being able to design is not enough, you have to put your heart and soul into it.
