What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
There is no silver bullet . There is not a single solution that can make your company. The success of a startup is the compilation of luck infused with many little wins along the way.
What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
You can’t do it all yourself – It is not possible to scale the company with just two to three people. In reality, that just results in being overworked and unfocused.
What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
1.) Bring the funk- If you are not passionate enough about what you are doing you won’t have the heart, desire and commitment needed to succeed.
2.) Always be launching. Best way to grow a business is learn by doing. Launch a product, test the product, and quickly engage the feedback. Innovating is a constant experiment so launch and pivot. Don’t force yourself down a path if it is not working. Make a correction.
