Entrepreneur

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I want to be my own boss, and be in control.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

the notion that you need money upfront to start a business. Any business I have ever started was with no more than $15 in my pocket.

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

1. Don't rely on anyone else to get the job done for you, get it done yourself

2. Only go into business with people you trust your life with. Trust is the hardest thing to gain, yet you can lose it very quickly.

3. Don't waste your time at these networking functions. At the end of the day the money is made when you are "on the line of duty"
