Business heroes

I have a very short list of my “business heroes” – less than a handful. Individuals that I admire not just for what they achieved but also more importantly, how they achieved it and the positive impact that they have had. With Steve Jobs passing, that short list has become even shorter.

When I heard the news yesterday I was in a meeting with a Silicon Valley startup – and every single person in their office (about 25) was running a Mac. Personally I have been a Mac user since Steve first came back….I had one of those colored, wedge shaped eMacs and have never looked back.

It’s sad that he will not be around to see the culmination of his work but it’s really about his family right now – how sad that he has passed away so young.

What a brilliant and inspired life he lived.
