There have been several over the course of my 40 year career as follow:
Scott E. Cohen
- Scott was my first mentor back in the early 80's and he taught me about work ethics, the art of the silent close, how to plan for downtimes and how to walk into any room like I own it (and I will).
Kjell O. Nelson, III
- Kjell was my boss, partner and friend from the late 80's until present day and he taught me how to value real estate developments, how to network and how to compromise in order to get a deal done!
- Was my mentee for the past 5 years and I am now advising him as the CEO of PingTank, Inc. Rich has taught me how to vett a startup pitch, how to structure startup financing from seed to A Round and how to stay nimble.
