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

It's frustrating that nothing ever happens as fast as you think it should. It's amazingly rewarding when you have customers honestly thank you for making their lives easier.

Hesitating, and not just diving in and trying their ideas out.
