I am a(n):


If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I want to be my own boss, and be in control.

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

Starting over. Similar to a great story the anticipation is greater than fast-forwarding to the ending but the story can be full of twists and turns and without a map to navigate you towards the end.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Assuming that everyone will understand your product and want to invest immediately.
