On the Show: Guy Kawasaki

Guy Kawasaki of Garage.com was a guest on my recent Houston Business Show and our conversation created quite a stir. Following the program someone sent me a post on a blog in which the author said he was "Dropping Out of School." Why? Because of what he heard on my program. In his post he wrote:

"I’m dropping out of school. Why you might ask? I’ll tell you. Ever since I started the program back in late November, I would ask myself, “Why am I REALLY doing this?”. To be honest, I really couldn’t find an answer. I follow Guy Kawasaki on Twitter and on Friday, February 15, he said he was live on the Houston Business Show. I listened to the show and the question came up about the need for an MBA. To sum it up, Guy basically said and MBA is not needed for entrepreneurs and startups in general. It’s like he was speaking to me. I’m an entrepreneur and I want to start a startup!"

Typically making life changing decisions upon listening to a radio show makes me nervous, but his reasons (seen through out the post) makes sense to him. During the show Guy also discussed how venture capital has been demystified and other interesting topics. Click to hear part one and part two.

What did you think of Guy's interview?

Great idea reminding listeners of shows and commenting on them. It will be fun to see your spin on your guests.
