Growing up without a mentor, Gillian Zoe Segal often wondered how luminaries in various industries made it to the top of their fields. Inspired by this curiosity, she conducted a series of interviews with thirty renowned leaders, including Michael Bloomberg, Jim Koch, Jillian Michaels, and Leslie Moonves. The result was her book Getting There: A Book of Mentors. Today she discusses why the subjects serve as personal mentors for the reader as well as her own successful journey from attorney to acclaimed photographer and author.
Gillian Zoe Segal is the author of Getting There: A Book of Mentors and New York Characters. She received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Michigan and a law degree from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. She lives in Manhattan and is also a photographer.
