Here, Chris Guillebeau shows you how to lead a life of adventure, meaning and purpose--and earn a good living. Still in his early thirties, Chris has traveled around the world--and yet he's never held a "real job" or earned a regular paycheck. Rather, he has a genius for turning ideas into income, and he uses what he earns both to support his life of adventure and to give back. In preparing to write this book, Chris identified 1,500 individuals who have built businesses earning $50,000 or more from a modest investment, and he's focused on the 50 most intriguing case studies. Here, distilled into one easy-to-use guide, are the most valuable lessons from those who've learned how to turn what they do into a gateway to self-fulfillment. It's all about finding the intersection between your expertise and what other people will pay for. You don't need an MBA, a business plan or even employees. All you need is a product or service that springs from what you love to do anyway, people willing to pay, and a way to get paid.--From publisher description.… (més)

Didn't finish... a good motivator if you want to start a new business, but it's more for people who want to create infomercial products... Also a big advertisement for Paypal and Google... did I mention that you can start a business in minutes with Paypal? and Google products are great! ( )

I'm paraphrasing but near the beginning the author outlines the 3 necessary ingredients to start a business, and this is all the more important if you're starting with very little capital. You need a product or service, people willing to buy it, and a means of accepting payment. That's it. You can expect more challenges and nuance to grow the business as you go but you'll need at least those 3 conditions to start.

That's the gist of it. And then you'll hear plenty of examples about how scrappy and innovative entrepreneurs made it work.

The book then slowly undermines itself by switching gears from showing you the process of starting a business to trying to sell you on the idea of traveling the world and generally being your own remote boss. Signing in for two hours to run your business from a beach in Thailand sounds fantastic but I've heard this pitch from far too many snake oil salesmen to trust this tactic. It's a shame too because Chris Guillebeau has a lot of interesting things to say. I just wish he kept it to the substance and didn't spend a desperate amount of time highlighting the glamour. ( )

You do not need to spend a lot of money or go into massive debt to start a new business. At least, this is the message that Chris Guillebeau shared in his book, The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future. Guillebeau told his story and the stories of many others as they began flourishing businesses on shoestring budgets. Read more ( )

There are good books and there are bad books and sometime along the way there are the interesting and remarkably written books that just capture reader's attention. This book is one of those books, and it doesn't just capture your attention, but you can also learn quite a lot from it, for as long as you are avid reader who loves to dedicate himself or herself into the stories that are within the book, cause if you analyze the stories within it, apply some of the rules the people within this book have applied, there's a large possibility that your life and your business will get much easier to live and much easier to run, for many people within this book have found a way from the biggest hardships to succeed and have eventually become successful.

Ehhhh....for someone with a business idea and no business experience or clue how to start, this book is worth considering.

For anyone with actual work or business experience who's contemplating taking the plunge to start his/her own thing, this probably isn't the book for you.

Guillebeau has a direct and accessible writing style. He's not pretentious and his book isn't full of get-rich-quick / maximum money for minimum work kind of advice. He does say that starting a business takes lots of time, work and hustle before it pays off. Also, there are a range of startup types portrayed with an idea of revenue they make. Some are six-figure businesses and some more modest. There are a lot of anecdotes and some advice on how to put together a marketing plan, develop a mission statement, and how not to waste time or money on things you don't need. That's all good, but in totality it's 101, entreneur-lite kind of stuff.

If that's what you need and want, this does it as well as any; otherwise, keep looking. ( )
