On Mother's Day, three high-profile entrepreneurs featured in 'Trep Talk reflect on how the matriarch of their family influenced their lives and their businesses.

For Dermalogica's Jane Wurwand, her mother's powerful work ethic inspired the drive she continues to show in growing her business and helping other women entrepreneurs. Shark Tank angel investor Barbara Corcoran says watching her mother guide the family offered many business lessons, particularly one of empathy. And for serial entrepreneur Gurbaksh Chahal, his grandmother's unflinching support propeled him to turn obstacles into opportunities in all his business ventures.
