I am a(n):

Entrepreneur

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I'm bursting with ideas!

My favorite startups:

Evernote, Flite, Disqus

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

Rewarding: In Silicon Valley almost no idea is dismissed out of hand as "crazy"
Frustrating: ADD of players in the sector

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Letting all their various stakeholders pull them in too many directions at once.

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

1. Treat your core team like they were your own flesh - you'll need them to stick together through thick and thin.
2. Be ready to launch something early.
3. Be ready to survive on a nickel.
