The biggest takeaway for Daniel, from being an entrepreneur especially a young one, is "to never let people discourage you from your idea, even if they don’t believe in you. If you believe in your idea enough to risk it all, then you’re ready to go for it all. The last person you don’t want believing in your idea is yourself."
