The $100 Startup

"Imagine a life when all your time is spent on the things you want to do...
...All over the world, and in many different ways, thousands of people are doing exactly that. They are rewriting the rules of work, becoming their own bosses, and creating a new future."
- 100startup.com

Hey, everybody! Today is an exciting day for an incredible author! Today is the release of Chris Guillebeau's latest book, 'The $100 Startup'.

I couldn't be happier for Chris, as he is an amazing human being and an inspiration to thousands of folks around the globe through his example, his events and his writings. Chris worked on this book for a very long time and I can attest from reading the advanced copy of it...his hard work and built-in brilliance created a fantastic read that is full of inspiration and how-to's on how to create your business, your way.
(For all my Akron and beyond friends who are currently considering your own startup - and I am happy to say that I know quite a few of you these days - this book is especially perfect for you.)

After following Chris online and in print for a while, I met him last June at his inaugural World Domination Summit. What an experience that was! (I wrote about that in two parts: here and here.)
Chris has stayed a constant in my life since then...I read everything he writes, I put a lot of it into practice, and I constantly enjoy the freedom, and the moolah, that come along with doing what you love and what comes naturally to you, for a living.

If you want to break out of the mold and turn your natural passions into big business ideas, I highly recommend that you get this book. It is chock full of good advice and examples.

Beginning today, it is available online and in the big book stores.
Hazel Tree Interiors was one of the 50 entrepreneurial stories around the globe he mentions in snippets and featured stories in this book. Because of this, Chris asked if we would sell the book from our little empire here on West Market Street. We are happy to oblige and will let you know when copies are available in our studio!

Congrats, Chris!
