I am a(n):

Companies I work or worked for:
If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I want to change the world.

My favorite startups:

Thumbtack, Groupon, Square

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

Money! I wish I was a millionaire or the heir to a large fortune, but alas I am not. If I was I would buy a loft in the middle of San Francisco, paint it black, and park my batmobile in front of it.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Giving up too soon and not being passionate enough. Failure isn't a bad thing.

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

Start small and slow. Don't do too much at once!
Branding, branding branding. Look like a big deal, even when you're not yet.
Take risks. Without them, you're just another fish in the sea...or something.

Full bio

I am a graphic designer, jewelry designer, artist, writer, professional organizer, entrepreneur, marketing guru, tea lover, work-a-holic, and a general jack-of-all-trades.

When I'm not working (and sometimes while I am working) I drink fine teas, and home-brewed drip coffee, work on two different novels, research new investments, and occasionally spin in my really comfortable office chair.

 

I have a Pippin (puppy) and a Rizzo (kitten) and they are best friends.
