Who are my Mentors?

This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while. Everyone has a hero they look up to, someone they admire. The realm I most associate myself with is the new media crowd (blogging, podcasting, internet video). Let me introduce you to my mentors:

Internet Business:

Jason Van Orden -Podcaster first and foremost, entrepreneur at heart. He was responsible for most of the promoting ideas I’ve implemented on this blog/podcast.


Paul Colligan – Best mentor anyone could ask for. He knows this area well, and is an awesome friend to have. To me, his name is synonymous with podcasting.


Yaro Starak – One of the first blogs I ever followed when I first came into this realm in early 2006. Everything he writes is so simple, anyone can understand it.

Darren Rowse – When I first ran across ProBlogger, I thought of the name. I said, “I want to be a Pro-Blogger” and I’ve modeled much of what I do on the internet around that statement.

Social Media:

Leesa Barnes – Started out podcasting, made a book, then merged into the realm of social media. Best interviewer I’ve had, and LOVES speaking on New Media.

Those are my mentors, what about you?

  1. Yay! Thanks for being the youngest person I interviewed for my book. Not even sure how I got connected to you, but I was so impressed with all that you were doing that I had to interview you. Totally honored that you selected me as one of your mentors. Can't wait to see where success will take you. Say hi to mom for me 😉

    • @leesabarnes Thanks, and not a problem at all. Glad I could feature you! 🙂

      Was listening to the recording of the interview we had, and it was because I tagged you in a post. I'll send you the entire recording if you want. 🙂
