Tech Guru Steve Wozniak Inspires on ASI Radio

Filed under: asi radio show, Fun

Steve Wozniak“You have to have a drive behind innovation, you have to have an end goal,” said Apple co-founder and visionary Steve Wozniak, a very special guest caller this week on ASI Radio. “And if the path to get there is difficult, you have to be creative. (And never discount a little luck!)”

These were just some of the words of inspiration Wozniak — who will be the keynote speaker at the 2015 ASI Show Orlando — used in his 20-minute interview. Brand loyalty, hands-on education, the evolution of business … all topics broached by “The Woz” during the show. And when he wasn’t talking business, he was dishing about his favorite apps and talking tech with our very own IT guy and first-time interviewer Jason.

Want a little expert advice on how to innovate? Then you need to watch this show!

Save the Date – Exclusive ASI Radio Interview with Michael J. Fox!

Filed under: asi radio show

Michael J. FoxIf you’re like me and grew up in the ’80s, one of the most indelible actors of the time was Michael J. Fox, who not only made a huge impact on the small screen playing the young Republican Alex P. Keaton in “Family Ties,” but also dazzled on the big screen as Marty McFly in “Back to the Future.” Short of calling him my idol, I gotta say Fox was the inspiration for a lot of my ’80s interests, including skateboarding, Pepsi-Free and cool, jigowatt-powered cars whose doors open skyward.

Back to the present …

Fox, who will be the keynote speaker at the ASI Show San Diego in April, will be doing an exclusive interview with ASI Radio on Jan. 24 at 10:30 a.m. EST.

According to the ASI Show website:

“Actor and activist Michael J. Fox will share the remarkable life lessons he has learned from his struggle with Parkinson’s disease – and the hard-won perspective that helped him to see challenges as opportunities.”

So join us on Tuesday for what promises to be a great radio show!
