Savvy Auntie Meets Guy Kawasaki

Dear Readers,

I am just going to say it. I met Guy Kawasaki. At his house. At a party sponsored by the Kirtsy girls. And I love the Kirtsy girls. But...

I met Guy Kawasaki.

Not by chance. Not at a book signing. Not in an elevator.

On purpose. At his house. Invited by him. And the Kirtsy Girls.

For all of you wondering, Dear Readers, who Guy Kawasaki is, read this. For all of those who know who Guy Kawasaki is and know that he's a guru of mine, say "Yay." 

Because I met Guy Kawasaki.

So the thing is, it's not so much the meeting of Guy Kawasaki. Guy either had very little idea who Savvy Auntie is (although we have exchanged Tweets, even Direct Messages on a number of occasions), or he had very little interest (well he isn't an Aunt so that's fair) but he did smile for the camera. And I do have the record....

...of meeting Guy Kawasaki. 

Guy and the Kirtsy Girls sponsored this party in honor of some the amazing blogging women who came to Blogher 08 in San Francisco this past weekend. Actually, it's still going on. But I left early to manage There's a lot of work to be done. Having the chance to meet Guy was just one of the perks of launching a company people care about it. So thanks, Kirtsy Girls, for inviting me.

Actually, if you look closely at Guy's smile, he does seem to be happy to be in the picture with me, right? Maybe this is just the beginning of my kinship with Guy.

Guy Kawasaki.

I should keep a check list of little dreams come true. 

Anyone got a pen?

Auntie Melanie
