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

Choosing between different products for investment. The following should be arranged in order of importance: making an impact in their field, generating wealth, evolving as an organization. Companies will then need to compare which candidate best suit their current needs.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Not believing the the products they investment in. Prioritizing money over values is always a mistake. infallible belief in a cause pushes an organization to succeed in ways money cannot.

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

Believe in your investments.
Practice strong communication in your team.
Determine which resources and team members would be most beneficial to a project.

Full bio

Hello, welcome to my page. 

I am an aspiring writer and avid hiker. I live in Sacramento but travel throughout California when I can. From snow capped mountains to sparkling beaches and from vast desserts to lush marshlands, our state has it all!

I also like visiting other states and going to different countries. I love checking out tourist traps and meeting locals in the surrounding areas. It's a big world out there; I want to traverse as much of it as possible. 

So far, I've been to the following places: The Philippines, California, Nevada, Wyoming, Montana, Mexico, The Netherlands, England and Japan (only because our plane needed to refuel but I'll count it). 

At heart, I'm pop culture junkie. Social trends have a strong impact in marketing and business development-it can make or break a consumer base. A good investor can see patterns within specific trends, its targeted users and consumer habits. Snapchat was a initially a quirky way for friends to communicate, now companies are taking advantage of its heavy traffic to promote products and events.
