Today, our guest is Guy Kawasaki, chief evangelist of Canva.com, brand ambassador of Mercedes–Benz, an executive fellow of the Haas School of Business and author of fifteen books. He is also well known as a former evangelist of Apple and a trustee of the Wikimedia Foundation.
We are talking about life, business, family, success in an enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere, catching the glimpses of wisdom, and having a good laugh.
His latest book, Wise Guy – Lessons from a Life is his most personal book.
As he says, it’s not a memoir or autobiography but a series of stories from his life.
He calls it Miso Soup for the Soul (alluding to Chicken Soup series).
He describes his experiences and lessons he learned about life.
His main idea is sharing the knowledge he gained and giving to people something that will empower them and help them grow. Alternatively, at least show them what not to do, what to avoid. Our conversation felt like friendly and humble father-to-son talk in which he wanted to share some useful knowledge but not sound too serious about anything.
Moreover, he did a great job! Besides some great advice, his genuinely positive attitude towards life and not taking himself too seriously made a powerful impression.
To read the lessons, that Guy talked about you can read the LinkedIn article I published about it. (Fabian Tausch)
