What is the most common mistake that you see young entrepreneurs make?

I don’t think I can answer this because I feel I am still learning myself. I think if anything, it is not getting out there and trying.

 

What is the best piece of business advice that you were ever given?

I am in sales and I office out of my home. I think the best advice I was ever given was to get out of the house and go start driving. There is always office work to be done, but to truly make a good sale you need to get out of the house and in front of a customer.

 

What does it take for you to get excited about an investment?

I have to see the person presenting excited about the company and I have to see the people who own the company excited about the company. When they are passionate, it rubs off on me. I also have to see a need for the company and see what makes them different.

 

What was your first investment?

ICEdot. – The crash sensor company.

 

What do you enjoy about angel investing?

I enjoy meeting new people and networking. I also enjoy seeing what’s new in the world, and I get excited when it comes out of Oklahoma.
