I am a(n):


If you're an entrepreneur or corporate innovator, why?

I have a burning desire to help people.

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

One great frustration in the world of entrepreneurship is understanding and working with it's natural cycles. In agriculture, we understand and can easily predict the cycles, and no one drops seed today and expects harvest tomorrow. But we routinely do this as entrepreneurs. Cycles are unpredictable. We have no almanac to tell us the best day to plant, if the season is rainy or dry. But at least if we understand there are cycles there as in planting a crop, we can begin to read the seasons.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs/innovators make?

The biggest mistake I see entrepreneurs make is to depend on their new venture to feed them as it grows. That's like having a child and expecting it to be the breadwinner day one. We must nurture and feed out new offspring, and grow it into something strong before we begin to lean on it. There are plenty of opportunities that do not require huge start-up capital. But they all have start-up investment of time and effort. If you need an immediate support system, adopt a thirty year old. Warning. The adoption fee will be hefty.

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

Patience, patience, patience
