Lets be Inspired

Last week I was listening to Janice Fraser of Adaptive Path sharing her successes and failures as an entrepreneur with Stanford’s Entrepreneurial Thought Leadership program. In the pod cast she highly recommend a book called: The Art of the Start by Guy Kawasaki. She recommended the book so much that I decided to purchase it. The book arrived last night. I am only through the first chapter and it is already inspiring me!
Thank you Janice for the recommendation.

    Hi Stephen,

    I think I was talking to you briefly after the IIA/IrishDev talk last week. I’ve read the art of the start too – very good stuff. You should try and get your hands on a copy of Seth Godin’s “Bootstrapper’s Bible” – it was available free online about 2 years ago. I met Guy a couple of years ago when I worked at Apple. He’s a very nice guy (no pun intended).

    Hi Walter,
    Thank you for the name of the Seth Godin’s book, I will definitly have a look at it.
    I hope everything is going well for PXN8. Everyone was singing its praise at the IrishDev talk.
    From just reading the first few pages of Guy’s book you can tell he must be someone inspiring to work with, it must have been great to meet him.

    Hey Guy,

    Thank you for the comment Guy.
    The fact that you saw my blog entry on your book shows the power that bloging can have.

    I have been trying to define what Web 2.0 is and this provides yet another definition of Web 2.0:
    “Empowering the consumer”
