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

The most frustrating thing about entrepreneurship the constant questioning and doubt you get from yourself and others, but it also presents one of the most rewarding thing about entrepreneurship: proving yourself and others wrong.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

The number one mistake I and other entrepreneurs I know have made is choosing the wrong people to work with. Whether it's a a co-founder, team member, mentor, or investor, everyone that surrounds you and your company has the potential for influence, so make sure those are people you would want influencing your company.

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

1. Be confident
2. Be prepared
3. Show up

Full bio

I'm a native Tennessean, a Memphian since 2008, and a proud double alumna of the University of Memphis.  During law school, I studied Elder Law and did pro bono work with Memphis Area Legal Services' Elder Law Clinic.  I became an entrepreneur because I wanted to solve problems, not deal with the aftermath like I did in law.  Being an entrepreneur allows me to be creative and collaborative, and there's nothing more rewarding than seeing your company grow each day.
