No. 1 mistake: To get emotionally involved with your idea

Vator’s community is the home to entrepreneurs who embrace their passion and follow their dreams.

Our newly-designed profiles allow members to express themselves by sharing their interests, lessons learned, as well as bits and pieces of their roller-coaster journey.

These profiles give entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase themselves and tell their story. So if you are an entrepreneur, a serial entrepreneur, or even an aspiring entrepreneur, we'd like to hear from you.

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
The most rewarding is to have a great idea different of all existent and that can be very usefull for people's lives. The most frustrating I believe it would be when someone takes your idea and try to exactly copy it for money only.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
To think that they're the only ones having a good idea in the world and everybody will love it, and then get emotionally involved with it more than the reason allows.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
Try at most to learn from the others' mistakes. If it's not possible, at least give a few steps and try to learn by your own mistakes.

Timezpot, Inc. is passionate about creating the world's most powerful tools for capturing, preserving, and sharing history; this includes their primary product, Zpotten, which is an interactive journal allowing users to build, preserve, and share living timelines of places and things that are important to them.

Zpotten is a platform that allows people to create a visual storyboard of events, specifying date, time and location, using a global map, and defining how they are connected to them through a detailed user-friendly time control system. With Zpotten, users don't simply "check in" to places… users preserve details about the meaningful events, in exact geo-mapped locations, down to the second they are happening.

Zpotten is a visual way of creating, connecting, sharing, and managing important events along with the exact locations of those events.
