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


Chris Guillebeau shows you how to lead of life of adventure, meaning and purpose – and earn a good living.

Still in his early thirties, Chris is on the verge of completing a tour of every country on earth – he’s already visited more than 175 nations – and yet he’s never held a “real job” or earned a regular paycheck.

Rather, he has a special genius for turning ideas into income, and he uses what he earns both to support his life of adventure and to give back.

You can start small with your venture, committing little time or money, and wait to take the real plunge when you're sure it's successful.

"I love this book because it inspired me to get started. I used to think that launching a business meant the traditional business plan and bank loan, but that book opened my eyes to the world of microbusinesses."

"This book taught me that I didn’t need to spend a lot of money to start a business. So I spent $100 to reserve a domain name and host a website on Wix."
