Author Role Model – Guy Kawasaki

In his book What the Plus!, Guy Kawasaki says that he stopped blogging because he has “a wife, four kids, one dog, two chickens, two turtles, three guinea pigs, and two lizards.”  Besides all of those things that keep him busy in his personal life, Kawasaki is one of those people who seem to have more hours in a day than the rest of us.

His “About” page on Google+ describes him as “Chief evangelist of Canva, an online graphic design tool. Formerly, advisor to the CEO of Motorola and chief evangelist of Apple.”

In addition to What the Plus!, he has written thirteen books including The Art of Social Media: Power Tips for Power Users, APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur–How to Publish a Book and Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions.

Kawasaki refers to himself as a “curator,” which is a person who finds great content and shares it.  He posts on Google+ 20 or so times a day covering topics like social media marketing, technology, parenting and humor.  Today he posted an article from Mashable about a Pug recreating sexy selfies of Kim Kardashian.

At the time of this writing Guy Kawasaki has nearly 7 million followers on Google+.  He certainly knows what he’s doing!
