I am a(n):

Entrepreneur

Companies I've founded or co-founded:
If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I'm bursting with ideas!

My favorite startups:

Airbnb and Uber: Spurring secondary markets now that’s impressive

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

Forcing entrenched entities to wake up and innovate or get out the way.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Waiting too long. Just start working on your best idea NOW.

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

> Your first idea is usually a precursor to another. Usually you hang around on the periphery till you iterate/test/pivot and then BOOM you are on the way to success.

> You really need to work with people you have already worked in the past.

> Not be afraid to say "I don't know" instead of shooting from the hip and/or pretending that you really know what's the right strategy. Test a lot, see what works, what moves the needle and what does not. Soon you will be able to see the light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel.
