If you are an entrepreneur, why?

Helping people in pain get off of harmful drugs and get their life back using a safe and simple device to get pain relief.

My favorite startups:

Facebook (no longer a start up) - but I do appreciate the time, energy, effort and focus that was required to make Facebook a household brand.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Not listening to good advice and taking investor money from people that are not focused on the real goals of the business.

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

1) Listen intently; 2) double the money - triple the time; and 3) patience is rewarded.
