Is there a person who inspired you early in your career and what leadership lessons did you learn?

When I was a freshman and sophomore in college, one of the boosters of the basketball team was the president of a meat company that sold to restaurants. He took us to his factory and to meet with his customers. I was just so impressed by the way he commanded the room and how he positively impacted the lives of the people around him. It made me think more about what it means to be in business, which up until that point was more of a general concept to me.
