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

Rewarding: Building genuine value out of an idea that can positively affect peoples lives.

Frustrating: The long sales cycles

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Not following up on customers after pitching.... and then following up again and again and again....at least 5 times

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

1. Crystal clarity in knowing our ideal customer & how do we qualify them.
2. Having a reliable and growing source of qualified leads - not using the sales guys to generate leads
3. Having a sales process and conversion funnel that can be measured at every point
