What does a typical work day look like for you?

Everyday is different and that's why I like it so much. I usually have a rough plan for the week but things can change pretty quickly. In general, my tasks include anything non-technical from product management to hiring people.

What are the main skills have you developed since working in a start-up?

The ability to improvise and test assumptions quickly.  

What are the challenges of working in an entrepreneurial environment?

Taking time off - if it's your baby, you want to work on it 24/7 which is not really sustainable.

How does your current role reflect your overall career plan?

It's exactly what I wanted to do!

Do you have any top tips for any students considering entrepreneurship as a viable career path?

Start now! Maybe do an internship in a start-up first if you are not sure about it.
