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

Most difficult aspect of entrepreneurship is finding the right people to work with, most rewarding part of entrepreneurship is that it doesn't feel like work because its more of a passion/hobby.

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

1 Always work for a start-up that you believe in. Its more enjoyable to work for something that you know will be successful. 2 Don't mind critics who give negative feedback/or don't take you seriously. Just acknowledge them and move on. 3.
