As the CEO and founder of Textpert I work with my superb cofounders everyday to make dating easier. I saw how texting was useful when dating, but ultimately it made things harder, so we set out to create an iPhone app that makes dating easier.

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

The most frustrating aspect of entrepreneurship is the lack of a guaranteed paycheck!

The most rewarding part is working with the team and building something that you have created on your own.

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

Thinking they know how to do it. You need to be constantly A/B testing

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

1. Have some money so you can take risks like quitting the day job
2. Find the right people and trust your gut when hiring or partnering up
3. Bust your ass working. Nobody else will do it if you don't

Full bio

I'm a CPA, an entrepreneur, a marketer, a salesman, an altruist, a dog-lover, and someone who wants to make dating easier.

With my cofounders I've created a platform on the iPhone to get on-demand, crowd-sourced texting advice for what to text your crush. It's fun, easy, and it will help you navigate the tricky world of dating with today's technology.
