I want to invent something cool.

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

Trying to get people to just look at your idea. Even when they like it, it is almost impossible to get them to buy it. But it is very rewarding when someone looks at your product and say "thats perfect, i need that". I want to fulfill a need people have, i don't want to just make pointless products.

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

Not hyping up my product before a launch. Another is not pricing around for prototyping. I should of done more research on a Prototyping company and not use just the ones i could find. I have been threw 4 Prototype companies and still looking for a better one.

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

Listen to everyone but dont absorb it all. Friends and family will love whatever you do, so make sure to get outside opinion.

Think about your cost before hand. I thought i would only spend a few grand on getting my company off the ground. Then i realized all the red tape.

IMPORTANT!! Find someone who has a business that you like and start talking with them. They will tell you things you never would of thought of.

Full bio

I am a young college student who got an idea. I went for it and took that idea and made a design around it. Now i am at the point of trying to get that design into a actual project. I have learned a lot along the way, but i want to know more. I just love business in general and want to always be in my own business or with a small company.
