“I think a lot of people sit around waiting for the muse to hit them;
waiting for inspiration to strike and they need this windswept beach with their fountain pen. I think that’s a load of BS.”
- Guy Kawasaki, The Monica Kade Podcast
He’s worked alongside Steve Jobs, he’s been the Chief Evangelist of Apple and now also Canva, an online graphic design tool. He is on the board of trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation and a brand ambassador for Mercedes Benz USA. Guy is the author of The Art of the Start 2.0, The Art of Social Media, Enchantment, and nine other books. He’s been an advisor at Google and done so many more amazing entrepreneurial things…and what I truly love about guy is his enthusiasm - not just for work but life.
I have had the pleasure of seeing Guy speak live twice at the Wired for Wonder event run by The Commonwealth bank - brilliant event - so it was a delight to have him join me on the show because his passion and enthusiasm for life is just infectious.
Our conversation is simple and to the point. Guy isn’t big on big inspirational mottos, nor various tools or things you need in order to get you started in life. He’s straight up and honest.
I think you’ll really enjoy the simplicity of his message and find wisdom in his 60 years of wisdom in walking through the entrepreneurial world.
Guy also recommends you read these books to guide you in pursuing your dreams:
- If You Want to Write, by Brenda Ueland
- Mindset, Carol Dweck
