#136 - Guy Kawasaki on Steve Jobs, Surfing, and the Power of Thinking Remarkable

Guy Kawasaki is a Silicon Valley icon, renowned entrepreneur, and the chief evangelist of Canva. Guy is the creator of the “Remarkable People” podcast.

Working alongside the legendary Steve Jobs, Guy was the Chief Evangelist of Apple and one of Apple’s original employees and played a pivotal role in the marketing of the Macintosh computer. He also served as a trustee of the Wikimedia Foundation.

Guy is the author of Wise Guy, The Art of the Start 2.0, The Art of Social Media, Enchantment, and eleven other books.

Guy has a BA from Stanford University, an MBA from UCLA, and an honorary doctorate from Babson College.

Guy and I discuss his latest book "Think Remarkable", how surfing conditions play a role when he schedules meetings, how to develop a growth mindset, the books that changed the way he looked at the world and why Steve Jobs did not want Guy to get an advanced copy of the legendary “Think Different” commercial that launched the Macintosh computer
