I am a(n):

Connector (a la Tipping Point), entrepreneur, investor, happy mother, and soccer player

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

Serendipitously fell into it...

My favorite startups:

Groupon, Facebook, eBay (but it's not a start-up anymore but I was around when it was)

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

Not having history to refer to and having to create it for new products and markets.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Thinking they know too much.

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

Believe in yourself and your instincts, take care of the people that work with you, and find things you are passionate about (then you want to stay up all night working on it).
