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

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

Most frustrating part is sometimes you don't know what the solution is for the adoption problems.
Most rewarding about innovation is when people appreciate the product you are making to solve their problems

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

Funding will "solve" all their problems

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

1) The product is a representation of the entrepreneur, what other people see is how they see you, you have to represent your soul in your product.
2) There is always room for excellence
3) The worst case scenario for being an entrepreneur is when everything fails over and over, you will still have job offers jumping from left to right
