Kunal, Change the World! – Guy Kawasaki 9/11/08

September 12th, 2008 · 5 Comments


I ask a friend to buy the book “The art of the start” and send it to me. He was told that it was the last piece they had. phew!

I leave at 6:30pm for Oberoi. I reach and as usual i go to Trident and am told to take the stairs and blah blah to go to Oberoi.

At the reception i ask Trupti if she can connect me to Guy’s room as i wanted to get his autograph. She was sweet enough to connect me to his room but alas there was no reply. Thankfully I knew his partner’s name “William” and Trupti connected me to him. Told him that i had met Guy yest and told him i will be coming to the hotel for his autograph. He was kind enough to tell me that he will inform him and that he might be taking a nap…


So i kept the book at the reception and my wait started. Thanks to Netra i knew that he was checking out at around 8:30pm and Bingo around 8:45pm he was there to checkout.

I walked upto him and introduced myself again. Glad that he remembered. Got the autograph took a pic and left with a big smile on my face!

    The smile on your face says a lot. Plus, the message is really powerful too. It’s short yet impactful. If someone told me something like that, it would always remain at the back of my mind and would keep popping up whenever I would be in a fix I think. I am sure the autographed book will remain a memoir to be cherished in the years to come!! (and maybe it’ll inspire you to write a book about start-ups in India and how they can see the light of the day :))
