Smile and read Guy Kawasaki’s new book: “Wise Guy”

Published by on februari 27, 2019

It is an honor to be asked to review, ahead of its release, a new book.
Especially if you admire the author, as I do Guy Kawasaki.
He is not the typical business author.
What I primarily appreciate about this publication, and his persona, is that Mr Kawasaki doesn’t attempt to be perfect.
Instead he shares many of his sizable faux pas (such as saying “no” to jobs which would have quite possibly made him enormously wealthy).
Well…Guy IS enormously wealthy…IN LIFE!…which is what he so excellently shares in his new book “Wise Guy” (a recommended read for those searching to enrich their “life’s journey”)

In short, do not make a mistake by NOT reading this book (instead make OTHER mistakes!)

As Guy writes: I hope my stories help you live a more joyous, productive, and meaningful life. If Wise Guy succeeds at this, then that’s the best story of all.

In my opinion, this book will make you smile – a mindset which perhaps might inspire you to say “yes” and “no” to life’s opportunities in the same manner Guy Kawasaki shares his “life journey”.

Entering the American market can be a daunting task and to survive, some say, companies need to behave like sharks – if you don’t keep moving, you’ll drown.

Authentic trend from New York

Published by on februari 1, 2019

After a marathon of fake news, authenticity is now being demanded. Companies like Apple strengthen its communication with this trend of authenticity.

Having just returned from New York, I witnessed a real trend. In the past, many wanted to embellish reality, but today they want to highlight and praise its credibility.
A marathon of fake news has created a strong desire for the opposite.
A good example is Apple’s store in Williamsburg, NY. When Apple took over an old brick house, it was renovated back to its structural origin. They became a local heroes and part of something larger than just themselves.
This trend from NY can benefit many companies if they pack their core values and translate them into dollars. They can then, just like Apple, build their value, brick by brick.
Storytelling is not just about telling a story, its about creating genuine and authentic values.
How can you increase your success with this authentic trend?
