I am a(n):

Entrepreneur

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I love the challenge of turning an idea into a flourishing company that solves a real pain point for people.

My favorite startups:

Kismet, Astrid, Crittercism

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

One of the most rewarding parts of entrepreneurship is getting to see your product in action in a real user's hands. Being able to solve a pain point for someone, and helping make their life better is a great feeling.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Trying to get it right the first time around. Building a company takes a lot of learning, and you're going to have to adapt your product and your strategies as you learn more.

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

Give yourself forcing functions to make sure you meet goals, learn from every single mistake, and make sure the product you're building solves a real problem.
