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

The most frustrating thing is waiting for the world to catch up to the vision of your innovation.

The most rewarding thing is to build something that people love when they discover it.

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

Underestimating how hard it is to execute.

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

1) Work backwards from measurable short term goals. This is the only way to quickly and objectively pivot and adjust.

2) Share your idea with as many smart people as you can. Don't worry about keeping your ideas secret or proprietary. It's better to get feedback and get people excited to help you versus worrying about people stealing your ideas.

3) Invest time and energy in your team. It's cliche but team really is everything.
