No Plan Involved: Guy Kawasaki (Marketing Guru, Author, and Host of "Guy Kawasaki's Remarkable People Podcast")

Aiming For The Moon

Successful and interesting people's careers may seem simple and practical when they are reverse engineered and deconstructed from hindsight. However, to the people in the driver's seat, it doesn't often feel that way. Guy Kawasaki, evangelist marketing specialist, author, Silicon Valley venture capitalist, and now host and creator of "Guy Kawasaki's Remarkable People Podcast," has had a long and ranging life. It is hard for one to draw a connection between counting diamonds, Mr. Kawasaki's first job, and working with Steve Jobs at Apple. The reason: there isn't a connection besides his varying interests and luck. In this episode, we dive into what it was like working with Steve Jobs as well as Mr. Kawasaki's advice for young people just starting their careers. That's not even including the fascinating subtopics that are hit in between!

Fortune and Opportunity - Guy Kawasaki

The Hope Strategy Podcast

Guy Kawasaki talks about his early experiences working with Steve Jobs at Apple while working on the Macintosh project. Guy shares his thoughts on failure, working with other people's money, and why work-life balance is “overrated”. Guy also talks about his father and mothers families and their relocation to Hawaii in search of better opportunities. Through hard work in the plantation fields, fighting fires and even work in government Guy’s family helped pave a culture of hard work and “grit” that has been the secret to his success. This episode is an upbeat but very honest look at motivation, work ethic and finding fortune.        Highlighted Quote “Failure is Not an Option”  “It is NOT “Ok” to fail. When you fail you ruin peoples’ lives, you waste money, you waste time, you waste many things… So don't get a cavalier attitude about failure. Having said that the odds are you WILL fail so the question is - “what lessons did you learn that will increase the probability of success next time?”   Resources/Mentions: Canva Apple  Mercedes  Guy Kawasaki Books  Garage Guest Links: Remarkable People Podcast  GuyKawasaki.Com Twitter Instagram LinkedIn Podcast Links: Instagram: @Hopestrategy  Facebook: @hopestrategy Twitter: @thehopestrategy Youtube The Hope Strategy
