Most frustrating: sometimes the market is not ready for your product.
Most rewarding: making a significant impact in people's lives and changing the world for the better. Creating jobs and employee/shareholder success.

2. Analytics is a competitive advantage
3. The best teams win (so finding the right complementary fit is key)
