Guy Kawasaki: Being Remarkable

Design Better Podcast

Guy Kawasaki has certainly had a remarkable career. From gaining popularity as the Chief Evangelist at Apple for the Macintosh computer in the 1980’s, to authoring fifteen books, to hosting the Remarkable People podcast, Guy has made a habit of trying new things  During our conversation with Guy, we talk about why it’s important to be able to make a sale, no matter what your role is. We discuss the start of his career at Apple, and how he got developers to write software for a relatively unknown platform. And we ask his advice for people just getting started in their own careers, whether that’s in tech, writing, or entrepreneurship.

IMPACT MATTERS to Guy Kawasaki

Chatter that Matters

How do you say no to a job offer from Steve Jobs?    Guy Kawasaki is one of the most respected minds in Silicon Valley, an evangelist for Canva, a prolific author (of 15 books), speaker and a newly minted podcaster. This episode is a masterclass for entrepreneurs and ambition.   Guy Kawasaki was one of Apple's first brand evangelists, and over his career, he worked there twice and turned Steve Jobs down a third time. That career move and turning down the role of CEO of Yahoo probably cost him about $3 billion. Guy Kawasaki has no regrets; he is one of the most positive people I have ever met, and his focus is to make the world a better place.   Guy Kawasaki shares some incredible stories of what it was like to work for Steve Jobs, including a heated exchange between the two that stopped a meeting – and Kawasaki's career – in its tracks.   A firm believer that business should have a higher purpose beyond profit, Kawasaki shares his top lessons in business, including the difference between enchantment and persuasion. Kawasaki's advice to start-ups is to create something that matters. And for those entrepreneurs seeking to become the next unicorn, he offers this two-step process.    Step one: Dent the universe. Step two: Become a unicorn-not vice-versa.   And for a bonus feature, Shadi McIsaac, the passionate and brilliant co-founder of OWNR, joins the show. OWNR is an all-in-one platform from RBC Ventures to start, manage, and grow your business. Sixty-five thousand companies have already used their services.

The Art of Being Remarkable in Your Business with Guy Kawasaki

Let's Talk Business

What exactly is a Chief Evangelist?  In business, we’ve embraced the idea that customers can be evangelists, but it's important to remember that employees and business builders can be evangelists too. Our guest, Guy Kawasaki, is the Chief Evangelist at Canva, a title that he explains can only work if the product can change the world—or at least a significant part of it. He’s the host of the Remarkable People Podcast, an executive fellow of the Haas School of Business (UC Berkeley), author of 15 popular books, and an adjunct professor of the University of New South Wales. As a former revolutionary at Apple, Guy popularized the concept of evangelizing in the technology business, and his ideas behind this concept have spread like wildfire.   In our interview, he tells us how to evangelize products and services by providing valuable content to the target audience. The key is to define “valuable” as something that can make their life better, as opposed to increasing your sales and profits. He discusses his journey of how he went from schlepping jewelry, to working closely with Steve Jobs at Apple, to ultimately impacting millions on a daily basis through the art of evangelism.  You won’t want to miss this inspiring and thought-provoking episode.

Reload: Finding Your Place in Social Media with Guy Kawasaki

What's Next! with Tiffani Bova

Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.  This week I am bringing back another classic episode of the What’s Next! Podcast with Guy Kawasaki. This was a special episode because I was able to capture a frank conversation with my friend and fellow Hawaiian. He’s the Chief Evangelist at Canva, a brand ambassador for Mercedes-Benz, and an Executive Fellow at the Haas School of Business. He is also the author of The Art of the Start, The Art of Social Media, Enchantment, and nine other books.   THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… anyone who wants to up their social media game.  TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Even for an expert, there is still room to learn. Guy is dedicated to making a difference via social media every day by pushing the envelope and learning as he goes.  In the world of social media, we both believe that you have to be thoughtful with your posts. The days of simply showing up are over.  You can’t just tweet once and call it a day. Video has to be better. Graphics have to be better.   Guy, however, takes a more aggressive approach. He’s comfortable posting about politics and difficult conversations that seemingly don’t relate to his brand.  He’s less risk-averse and is willing to take chances on social media.   I, on the other hand, will craft a Tweet and not hit send. I won’t Tweet something if the content doesn’t represent my “brand,” if the intention isn’t correct, or if it doesn’t add value. I am more cautious.   There’s no right or wrong way to approach social, just choices. Guy believes social media is similar to life: error correction and experimentation.  WHAT I LOVE MOST… Guy focuses on making a difference. He doesn’t look back – he pushes forward to keep learning, experimenting and growing. This forward-thinking is something we can all learn from.  Running time: 35:40  Subscribe on iTunes Find Tiffani on social:  Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Find Guy on social:  Website Twitter Facebook
