Product description

Review

The $100 Startup is a twofer: It's a kick in the pants to get started on your dream and a road map for finding your way once you begin. If you're not ready to launch your own business after reading this book, you need to go back and read it again!
-- Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

In this valuable guide Chris Guillebeau shows that transforming an idea into a successful business can be easier than you think...You are in charge of which ideas deserve your time, and this book can help you wake up every morning eager to progress to the next step.
-- Tony Hsieh, New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO of Zappos.com

The money you have is enough. Chris makes it crystal clear: there are no excuses left. START. Start now, not later. Hurry.
--Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author of The Bootstrapper's Bible

Everything Chris Guillebeau does is in earnest. The ideas inside this book will lead you to a better place.
-- Chris Brogan, President of Human Business Works and author of Trust Agents

"With traditional career doors slamming shut, it's easy to panic, but Chris Guillebeau sees opportunities everywhere. Making a career out of your passion sounds like a dream, but in this straight-forward, engaging book he shows you how to get it done, one simple step at a time."
-- Alan Paul, author of Big in China

Delivers exactly what a new entrepreneur needs: road-tested, effective and exceptionally pragmatic advice for starting a new business on a shoestring."
-- Pamela Slim, author of Escape from Cubicle Nation: From Corporate Prisoner to Thriving Entrepreneur

"Guillebeau has been in the trenches for years, and in The $100 Startup he guides you step-by-step through how he and dozens of others have turned their passions into profits. It's essential reading for the solopreneur!"
-- Todd Henry, author of The Accidental Creative

This book is more than a how to guide, it's a how they did it guide that should persuade anyone thinking about starting a business that they don't need a fortune to make one.
-- John Jantsch, author of Duct Tape Marketing and The Referral Engine

"Crammed with data, checklists, models, and concrete examples. Thoughtful, funny, and compulsively readable, this guide shows how ordinary people can build solid livings, with independence and purpose, on their own terms."
-- Gretchen Rubin, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Happiness Project
