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

Working for yourself and/or with a small team of very focused dedicated people is incredibly rewarding. Not getting paid....see start ups I've worked for!

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

Thinking the project, invention, idea they have is the best thing in the world. Get outside and ask people what they think, don't live in your own bubble!

Awards or great, getting paid is even greater
Making it perfect doesn't always make something better
