1. Mark Zuckerberg: Inexperience

One of the world’s most recognized entrepreneurs and owner of the largest social media network in history knows you can’t find success on your own. “When I was getting started, I didn’t want to build a company and I didn’t know anything about building companies,” he said in a public Q-and-A on Facebook. “The thing that got me through it and I think gets a lot of people through it is the people around them.”

2. Larry Page: Being a Manager

Larry Page, cofounder of Google, understands his strengths and weaknesses and says the challenge comes in making up for the difference. “Certainly, I think, the things that I’m missing are more things that you acquire with time,” Page said in an interview with the Academy of Achievement.

“If you manage people for 20 years, or something like that, you pick up things. So I certainly lack experience there, and that’s an issue. But I sort of make up for that, I think, in terms of understanding where things are going to go, having a vision about the future, and really understanding the industry I am in, and what the company does, and also sort of the unique position of starting a company and working on it for three years before starting the company. Then working on it pretty hard, whatever, 24 hours a day. So I understand a lot of the aspects pretty well. I guess that compensates a little bit for lack of skills in other areas.”

3. Sergey Brin: Scaling the Company

Google’s other cofounder, Sergey Brin, said in the same interview there are many challenges to being an entrepreneur but “one is providing a service that’s going to serve millions of people. When we were at Stanford, we had about 10,000 searches per day. Now we serve over 50 million searches per day. That scaling of an infrastructure, that is pretty challenging.”

4. Lori Greiner: Dealing With Unethical People

In true Lori Greiner fashion, this “Shark Tank” investor isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. When asked about her biggest challenge in her career in a recent Reddit AMA, she wrote, “Dealing with unscrupulous people. P.S. — I have triumphed. Remember, Karma is a bitch — I believe in Karma and I have seen what goes around come back around.”

5. Steve Jobs: Simplicity

Steven Jobs is known for his focus, but that didn’t always come easy to the former Apple CEO. In an interview with Business Week, he explained, “That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex. You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

6. Bill Gates: Getting Overwhelmed by Technology

When you run a company like Microsoft, you understand the power of innovation. But small businesses that are just starting out might neglect this critical component of success. “Large companies recognize that effective use of technology is a strategic weapon,” Bill Gates told Entrepreneur magazine in a 1999 interview. “This is an area where small business can be overwhelmed and, as a result, may not take advantage of the power of technology available to them.”
