6 Successful Entrepreneurs on the Mentors Who Inspired Them

6 Successful Entrepreneurs on the Mentors Who Inspired Them
From Recruiter - October 6, 2016

1. My College Professor

My college professor was probably my greatest mentor because he was extremely patient with me. My mentor only advised me and did not criticize any of my choices. Instead, he worked to support my decisions. This helped boost my confidence and allowed me to make mistakes when I needed to.

2. A Former Coworker

The best mentor I ever had was a woman I met when I started working at Microsoft back in 2001 or 2002. We initially just clicked in many wayswe built our chemistry on fashionable shoes (being fashionable was a rare trait in a tech company, especially in those days) and just being a good ear for one another. Its been almost 15 years, and shes continued to be an ear, mentor, friend, advisor, and even an investor in my startup. What made her a great mentor was the confidence and trust that she always had my back no matter what and that she was looking out for my personal well-being.

3. My Tennis Coach

This may sound crazy to someespecially to people who dont play sportsbut my tennis coach taught me more about life than anyone I can remember. He used to tell us Cant never did anything and Woulda, coulda, shoulda when we would complain about something. It never dawned on me until much laterlike, 15 years laterthat he wasnt only talking about tennis.
