I am a(n):

Entrepreneur

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I want to invent something cool.

My favorite startups:

Quora, Spotify,

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

Frustrating: Making no money, not knowing exactly what the right decision is, trying to stay ahead of the curve, long, long, long, long hours!!!!,

Rewarding: Independence, satisfaction of making nothing into something, sense of accomplishment, building something special, legacy, not knowing what the right decision is but trusting your intuition and team

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Thinking you know what your customer wants, giving up too soon, trying to do too much at once (trying to be everything to everyone),

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

1. Don't spread yourself too thin, focus on your core competencies
2. Trust your gut and your team
3. Be adaptable, don't be married to your idea, accept change
