-----You engage in a number of keynote speeches every year and you have written more than 10 books. As a result, you often get a lot of media exposure. What motivates you to empower people?
It’s my calling. It’s what I enjoy doing. I want to leave this earth slightly better than when I got here by empowering people.
-----What is the greatest moment you have had in your career and why?
My greatest moment was probably the three years I worked in the Macintosh Division of Apple. We changed the world with Macintosh—it was enormously satisfying to help democratize computing.
