In this segment of "F Logic" -- from Entrepreneur Network partner Business Rockstars -- Elizabeth Chambers Hammer answers some questions about her experience as an entrepreneur. 

Hammer defines entrepreneur as someone who is not afraid to take risks and chase after her dreams. And though she wears the title entrepreneur proudly these days, Hammer did not see herself as an entrepreneur back in the day. She simply saw the prospect of doing what she wanted, and hopefully, being able to put a title to it.

If she were able to speak to her teenage self today, Hammer would emphasize that not every first solution is going to be the one that works, but that it is important to start somewhere.

Conversely, the experiences Hammer gained as a high school athlete taught her a few important lessons to inform her adult choices; most notably, show up, do your best and problem solve as much as you can.
