Guy Kawasaki talks about being a senior
Guy Kawasaki is a Silicon-Valley based author, speaker, entrepreneur, and evangelist. I’ve admired him for many years now. Being a new podcaster, I was so excited when I reached out to him and asked him to be on my podcast and he said, “Yes!”.
Our premise at The HIP Senior is that seniors can be HIP and exciting and that age is only a number. Guy Kawasaki proves this on a daily basis, with a few creaks in the day. I asked him about learning to surf at the age of 60 and he said that he is now 66 now, and takes an act of God to take an interview at low tide because he wants to be out surfing! That is dedication!
Guy tells us about “the growth mindset” when I asked about using AI such as Alexa. He shared that he uses Alexa to turn on a light, ask the time and weather but that’s about all. We discussed seniors not using it out of fear and not wanting to grow and learn. (Update 1/19/22 – the senior mentioned in this section now has an Amazon Dot and frequently asks Alexa for weather, time, and music).
Guy tells us how he’s been helping seniors in the technology field for decades. I’m guessing he was the OGl “The Senior Tutor” before me ;). Give our podcast episode a listen to learn more about this “remarkable” person!
