In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Business Rockstars talks with Andres Izquieta, CEO of Five Four Club.

Izquieta describes an entrepreneur as someone who not only thinks of a concept and executes it, but takes it one step further, recognizing a problem and solving it. The latter is especially impressive to Izquieta.

Izquieta notes that he always saw himself as an entrepreneur because as a child, he had a headstrong attitude and always wanted things in a specific way. If he couldn't, he'd find a different way.

The company's first round of funding followed an unconventional approach: The company's original stream of money came from maxed-out credit cards the team applied for as students.
