Check Your Ego At The Door: Famous People I Admire

This is a new list that I have come up with and it is taken from famous people I have come to admire over time not only for their accomplishments and contributions they have made in their chosen careers but the way they have conducted themselves and set examples in their personal lives as much as they have demonstrated the utmost in professionalism on the job. What they all have in common though is that they have kept their egos in check throughout their careers and have let their work do the talking for them.
