Born the son of an entrepreneur, I spent the majority of my early career in the formation of a Long Island, NY based Hotel development and management company. Much of my time is now spent advocating for a better Long Island, which led me to Ram and Brimes Energy. My life goal is to leave Long Island better than I found it, for the benefit of my kids generations and theirs after them. Quote_down

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

Most rewarding is developing a concept, that everyone fails to understand, then proving the concept making them all wonder how you did it. Frustrating, would be the sleepless nights you experience in the early days, wondering if you made the right call on the development concept. More frustrating is hearing all the non believers tell you after the fact how lucky you are to have such a great business.

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

Follow their hearts too closely in the development/planning phase,and fail to trust the advises of key advisers at critical junctures during the same phase.

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

1. Measure twice, cut once. Most bets are won before they are made.
2. Before you do anything in business, you need to 1. Know who you are, 2. What you are selling, and 3. Who you are selling it to.
3. Failure is not an option.
