If you're an entrepreneur or corporate innovator, why? I want to change the world.

My favorite startups: Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness

Why did you start your company or why do you want to innovate inside your company? I started my company with a goal to help those in the outpatient community. I quickly identified the system deficits allowing my passion to grow. It has since grown from a state vision to a world vision.

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation? The most frustrating aspect is the system that we know is broken yet society cannot easily accept innovation and change. It is an uphill battle and is necessary in order to help bring the change we need.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs/innovators make? I think the number one mistake they make is allowing hesitancy and fear to overcome innovative judgement impeding actionable steps. Critical thinking skills, pivoting, and shifting are all items that are necessary at every level.
