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

Building a business is step wise and takes time. Sometimes the learning process is longer than you'd like. Having no money in the beginning is usually better than having too much because it forces the teams to be realistic, listen to the customers and produce a better overall solution. All of this is painful but usually highly rewarding...

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Planning for the best outcomes and not looking at the reality that a business needs to make money. Sometimes that involves very difficult decisions and many times they are not prepared to roll-up their sleeves or make the decisions so the company continues in the same path or dies.

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

Have a great idea or find and validate great SaaS ideas and put 150% into it.
Work with entrepreneurs that have significant and relevant experiences.
Have large markets that have profound needs and the ability to pay for solutions that can solve those problems and improve their lives.
