I’m a WYSIWG Kind of Guy

I’m catching up on AmandaAcrossAmerica, and found her interview with one of my heroes, Guy Kawasaki (Part 1 / Part 2:

  • It takes ego to change the world.
  • Guy likes to know what people are writing about him, but he doesn’t read blogs (headline of this post comes from this section of the interview)
  • He’s obsessed with watches.
  • “I don’t want to be the next person. I want to fund the next person.”
  • “Failure is a good thing.”
  • The companies that have changed the world, failed the three-point VC test (No proven team, no proven business model, no proven technology), such as Yahoo!, Cisco and Google.
  • If it takes 30 minutes to explain the problem, it’s not a problem.
  • Missed opportunity is what keeps a VC up at night, not bad investments.

And Guy interviews Amanda.

  1. Must be if he watched the historic rise of the Macintosh from the inside and is now a Venture Capitalist… I like that he started playing hockey at 48. I haven’t played for a year and now I’m 38. I’m thinking I still have time!
