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

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

View raising money as their primary objective.

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

It takes a while to become an overnight success. Becoming an expert in an industry can happen quickly when you talk to a lot of smart, and not so smart, people with experience.
