I dont know. I dont tend to think of it like that. I know plenty of important people but by what standards you or anyone else classes as important I dont know. I know a guy who works at apple and is one of their higher up directors but does that really count for anything. I dont think it does. It doesnt change the person I am, and doesnt make me any more special than the next person.
I think the only person that has an opinion that counts is my better half as he thinks the world of me as do I of him. I would suppose my parents and immediate family are also those who's opinions count but overall I dont see any difference between me and the next.
As for job, well I currently am starting mine but from what I have experienced, I totally love it. I wish I was able to do it more often.
