The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do what You Love, and Create a New Future

Front Cover
Crown Business, 2012 - Business & Economics - 285 pages
In Chris Guillebeau's travel to over 175 countries, he has met two kinds of people: those like himself who have the time and income to follow their whims and who've created an entertaining and fulfilling life--and those who feel trapped. This second group wants what the first group has, but the big stumbling block is making money. Because Chris realized that the first group has knowledge to impart, he identified 1500 people worth emulating, and refining that further, he offers here the 50 most valuable and interesting examples of micro-business success. In nearly all cases, people with no special skills discovered a way to monetize their personal passions. It's about finding the intersection between what you like to do 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 flows from what you love to do anyway, people willing to pay, and a way to get paid.
