Authors@Google: Chris Guillebeau “The $100 Startup”

In The $100 Startup, Chris Guillebeau shows you how to lead of life of adventure, meaning and purpose — and earn a good living. Still in his early thirties, 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. Chris talks about how 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. And the best part is, if we change our own life, we can help others change theirs. This remarkable talk will start you on your way.

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 willing to pay, and a way to get paid.

    Entrepreneurship is …
    Entrepreneurship is not something that can be taught. Some people are just better at recognizing gaps in the market; and also have the capital resources – intellectual and material – to close them. Creating value is always about finding out what it is consumers value; if one happens to be passionate about it so much the better but it isn’t a requirement to be successful.
