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

To make a difference, To help the world be a better place, To make it more fun.

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

There are more reasons not to do something than to do it. It's finding the right ones and bringing them to light.

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

Not estimating the capital or resources needed to make it a reality. If you don't have capital than you better have a lot of talent or people that can guide you along the way. If your not working with someone who has taken an idea and did the steps themselves to bring it to may miss a lot of short cuts and headaches getting there. Get someone to guide you thru the mind fields, it's much better that way.

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

Nobody will believe in your idea more than yourself.
Network, Network, Network - it comes back many times over

Steve Stark is a designer, inventor, marketing specialist specializing in product development bringing products to market.

CEO of Animated Trivia

I have worked with MPK, CO. in representation of Litroenergy and Litroenergy Power Cells.

"I have created a line of Wham-O Frisbee® disc's and one has just been launched in stores in 2008 (Wham-O's 60th Anniversary).

The high performance waterproof foam disc "Wham-O EZ SPIN Foam Frisbee® Disc" can be purchased at Target stores, or found at other major retailers near you. This is a soft foam disc for easy catching, easy to grip and throw while offering a blue plastic center so anyone can easily spin the disc on a finger! You can even turn the disc upside down and easily spin the disc on your finger like a pro!

Here is an article that best describes the disc:

The EZ Spin is a revolutionary Foam Frisbee® Disc being referred to online as the best recreational disc available today. After flying one of these multi-feature toys, it is “EZ" to see why.

Wham-O, who originally created the Frisbee® disc, went back to the drawing board and created the perfect mix of fun and sport with this new disc product. The EZ Spin disc is a high performance disc made from amazing waterproof foam material that can be used at the beach/pool or in a disc sport (Ultimate, Disc Golf, Freestyle) including Disc Tag! Who would have thought you can play Disc Tag? FYI, it’s not easy to out-run this foam disc! Players will appreciate the foam material and high performance flight.

The EZ Spin, which comes in yellow or red, is EZ to catch, grip and throw all day with the kids and is very EZ on the hands! The waterproof soft foam (advanced closed cell material) makes this disc absolutely perfect for the beach/pool. The special blue dual spin plastic center feature of the EZ Spin disc is for comfortable finger placement on the disc that allows everyone the EZ way to spin the disc right side or upside down on a finger (almost addictive) - just like a Freestyle pro!

In the high speed game of Ultimate the EZ Spin became the preferred disc for our game as a player is not afraid to launch the disc at high speeds to a team mate because it is a foam disc! The Disc Golf “inside word" is the EZ Spin is a secret weapon for anyone’s Disc Golf bag as I found when this disc hits the hole (the chains) it immediately drops into the basket.

Disc beginners to sports enthusiasts will all agree that the EZ Spin disc is a revolutionary disc and certainly the best recreational disc available today!

The weight is approx. 150 Grams (perfect freestyle weight).
