What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Underestimating how much your life will revolve around your company and how challenging it is to start, run, and successfully scale a startup venture.

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

1. Being an entrepreneur is the hardest work you will ever love.
2. Find amazing co-founders, they will be your family.
3. When you are not able to sleep at night because your idea is so exciting and you are not able to focus on anything else, it's time to leave your job and start your company.
