Corporate Evangelists Love to Spread the Word !!!

Spreading the Word about Chief Corporate Evangelists (C.I.E)

When Google hired Vint "Father of the Internet" Cerf last September, it gave him the ecclesiastical-sounding title of "Chief Internet Evangelist." His job, as Cerf himself has explained, is "helping people understand--both inside and outside of Google--what Google's potential is." Now to nontechnophiles or those residing outside Silicon Valley, the move might have seemed like another New Agey gesture by the search-engine superpower. This is, after all, a company with the it's-hard-to-keep-from-rolling-your-eyes corporate mantra of "Don't Be Evil." So, is chief Internet evangelist just an effort to apply a quasi-spiritual gloss on some glorified marketing position?

Don't be cynical. Google is only one of many companies, mostly in the technology sector, designating certain employees as "evangelists." Microsoft has technology evangelists reaching out to developers and consumers through company-sponsored Internet forums such as Channel 9 and The Hive. Some companies, such as Sun Microsystems, have even created the overarching position of "chief evangelist" who focuses more on trumpeting core values and vision. The word "evangelist" comes from the Greek word eu-angelos, meaning "bringer of good news."

But the job of a corporate evangelist is about way more than preaching the wonders of a company to customers and clients.

"Evangelism is about sharing your dream so that other people believe in it as much as you do," says Guy Kawasaki, former chief evangelist for Apple Computer and one of the key people responsible for marketing the Macintosh in 1984. "Those people then, in turn, get even more people to believe. Just like Jesus did as the most important evangelist [in history] who recruited 12 more evangelists [to spread the good news worldwide]."

Your environment is the mental feeding ground from
which the food that goes into your mind is extracted.

Choose your environment with care, one that is positive,
one that lifts you up and gives you wings to soar.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambition.
Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Don't become a victim of your environment.

Create favorable conditions through your associations.

Your own inherent spirtual force and energy will compel things to turn out
the way you desire them to be when you're surrounded by positive people.

Can WE all start showing that we really do care for one another - even if it can only be as friends?

Can WE air all of our differences - openly and honestly - without fear - and come out on the other side in a better place than we were when we started?

Can WE share truth honestly - even if it may hurt those we love sometimes, or even cause us to argue needlessly - but when it is done in true friendship the resolve to remain friends for a lifetime will be sustained - and that can & will withstand the test of time.

I know we CAN ALL be better off, and I hope WE ARE ALL better people - because we did. Thank you J.

Keeping the Faith - always,
