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

Because failure is likely for most, it keeps entrepreneurship/innovation a challenging, but exciting and rewarding enterprise, especially if you stay optimistic and passionate to overcome obstacles.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Lack of ambition. Several give up, or fail to constantly think of innovative ways to execute new or existing ideas into a successful business model even after success or failure.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
  1. Be persistent.
  2. Be open to advice and feedback from others that most likely have more experience than you.
  3. Share your thoughts and ideas with others to get constructive criticism, which can improve the idea and help you discover new ways to execute them successfully.
