Kiva Organization: A Business Model

I wrote a post last week about The Kiva Organization titled Enriching a Nation. Here is a blog post by Guy Kawasaki reflecting on why The Kiva Organization is such a great business model. Given that Guy runs a venture capital firm, I found his perspective refreshing. Read his post here.

Guy Kawasaki also recently wrote a terrific book called Art of The Start.

In The Art of the Start, author Guy Kawasaki helps people simplify the art of starting a new endeavor and avoid the potential pain of paralysis. His study of attitudes and people’s states of mind focuses on priorities and guidelines for doing rather than dreaming.
