Entrepreneur, self-tracker. I've been involved in startups for 16 years. I love to create products that work simply and work well. Products should work ubiquitously and solve a fundamental problem.

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

Not moving fast enough. Moving too fast. Entrepreneurship is a dichotomy.

Not using their own product. You need to feel your users' pain to create an elegant product.

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

1. Admit failure and move on.

2. Don't love your product too much.

3. Be confident and be your product's super user.
