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

I want to change the world.

Why did you start your company or why do you want to innovate inside your company?

I want to discover something new and want to do something new for the dairy indoustry.

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

Starting and running a business can sound like an attractive venture until you go through some rough times that can make you regret starting the business. Often, some of these frustrations can threaten the mere existence of the business and lead to serious liabilities. Some of the down-sides of a business can include pro-longed working hours and uncertain income in times of losses.

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

As a young entrepreneur I loved talking about myself, my gifts, my talents, my ideas and everything about me because I think it helps boost my ego, little did I know how foolish I was. Wise people don’t talk much but there is always sense in the little they say.

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

I delivered over 80 invited presentations around the world primarily on precision dairy technologies, compost bedded pack barns, and mastitis management. He is an active member of the American Dairy Science Association and the National Mastitis Council.
