    big time

    So if you have access to someone you*admire, be bold. Politely ask for thirty minutes of their time, no matter how "big time" they are, and you might be surprised at the response you receive.

    Does this "big time" mean tycoons or big shots or "important time period"?

    Re: big time

    It means "important people".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
