How to Start a Business on a Dime: My Video Review of The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau

Chris Guillebeau’s life is impossible. Or at least improbable.100 dollar startup by Chris Guillebeau, $100 Startup

He has been self-employed for almost his entire life.  He spent four years as a full-time volunteer in West Africa for a medical charity, while supporting himself at night with moonlighting and business consulting.

In the past four years, he has written two books, publishes a popular blog, traveled extensively (more on that in a moment), and founded a tremendously popular conference  each summer (which I will be attending for the first time this July).

Oh yeah, and in his free time, he’s on a quest to visit every country in the world. This is no lofty, pie-in-the-sky, “I want to own the Dallas Cowboys” kind of goal. As of this writing, he’s actually only one country away from actually achieving it.

His latest book is The $100 Startup, which chronicles numerous boot-strapping entrepreneurs who manage to build successful businesses using not much more than their own pluck and a crisp Benjamin Franklin.

Guillebeau backs up the case studies with concrete advice on everything from marketing to copywriting, based in large part on his own experiences.

Here’s what a few people I admire said about The $100 Startup:

  • bestselling author Dan Pink called “a kick in the pants to get started on your dream.”
  • John Jantsch said the book should “persuade anyone thinking about starting a business that they don’t need a fortune to make one.”
  • Pam Slim said the book “delivers exactly what a new entrepreneur needs: road-tested, effective and exceptionally pragmatic advice for starting a new business on a shoestring.”
