A 12-Minute Video Interview with Guy Kawasaki: On Enchantment, Persuasion, Work, and Faith

Guy Kawasaki on being a Christ-follower in business:

 

Guy Kawasaki: "I am a Christ follower. ...there are various kinds, like there's the really evangelical kind, who go out and sign people up? I don't do that. I can't tell you that I go to Africa and help poor people in Africa. 

...I like to be seen as an example of someone in business who can operate at a very ethical level without having to do bad things, who believes in Christ. I don't make a big deal of it. I don't try to hold myself up as this role model that everybody should aspire to because I think that is such a slippery slope.

When you start believing that you are a role model... that is how you get people who go off the deep end. I don't want to do that.

I just want to be this silent example.

Remember, we will start the book club discussion on Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions on May 9th. Laura Boggess will post on chapters one and two that Monday morning. I hope you will join us!
