Quick Overview

Anyone can turn a passion into a career, and it doesn’t take a fortune. In The $100 Startup, entrepreneur and Bottom Line contributor Chris Guillebeau tells the tales of 50 entrepreneurs who earn at least $50,000/year doing simply what they love to do. The first step is figuring out what your salable skill is. Guillebeau takes readers step-by-step through identifying what skills they have that are marketable…to writing a business plan…testing the concept…finding customers…and ultimately growing the business. Imagine being able to do what you love every day and make money doing it. The $100 Startup helps make that dream a reality.

Here, finally, distilled into one easy-to-use guide, are the most valuable lessons from tho people who have learned how to turn what they do into a gateway to self-fulfillment. It’s all about finding the intersection between your “expertise”—even if you don’t consider it such—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 who are willing to pay…and a way to get paid. In ancient times, people who were dissatisfied with their lives dreamed of finding magic lamps, buried treasure or streets paved with gold. Today we know that it’s up to us to change our lives. And the best part is, if we change our own life, we can help others change theirs. This remarkable book will start you on your way.
