Do you have a mentor? How have they influenced you?

Would love to hear what has been your experience with mentors and what kind of difference they made to you and your business.

My business success in a Fortune 500 company (#120) was directly related to the mentorship I received. I have spent the last 20 years mentoring startup entrepreneurs.

I have had multiple mentors in my life. Chuck House (https://www.coursera.org/learn/startup-entrepreneurship-discovering-ideas/lecture/KnELw/how-to-be-creative-in-large-organizations-intrapreneurship starting at 5 min mark) was one of my indirect managers at HP who taught me a lot about how to be rebel inside a big company, create and lead a change agent organization inside a big company, as well as how to treat subordinates to achieve amazing and seemingly impossible results. Jef Raskin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jef_Raskin ) who was a user experience consultant for me after he developed the Macintosh User Experience. He taught me a lot about user experience design and product design and strategy, and that was influential when I later had the chance to co-invent web conferencing as the manager of user experience. Steve Haber has taught me a lot about how to manage my companies through many problems that are common to start-ups.
