Mother Dearest: 6 Entrepreneurs and Their Mothers

Over the past weekend many of us spent time honoring the one woman who tells us how it is – our mother.  We have all thrown out what we think are great ideas only to have our mother give us that look as if to say, “Really?”  Every so often though, she’ll climb on board or give insightful, timely feedback, and it’s then that a new business is born or a cutting edge product created.   We often hear from the mogul, but what about their moms?  Take a look at the lessons learned from these six mothers.

 

What has your mother taught you?
