106 Miles Presents Chris Guillebeau, Writer, Travel Hacker, Entrepreneur

  • September 5, 2012 · 6:30 PM

For our 1 Year Anniversary and as a gift to 106ers and entrepreneurs in SoCal, 106 Miles, together with our Co-Hosts Startup California Partnership and io/LA welcomes Chris Guillebeau, best selling author of The Art of Non-Conformity and now, The $100 Startup, to Hollywood.

"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.

In preparing to write his latest book, The $100 Startup, Chris identified 1,500 individuals who have built businesses earning $50,000 or more from a modest investment (in many cases, $100 or less), and from that group he’s chosen to focus on the 50 most intriguing case studies.

In nearly all cases, people with no special skills discovered aspects of their personal passions that could be monetized, and were able to restructure their lives in ways that gave them greater freedom and fulfillment" - from Amazon.com

Please join us for Chris' keynote, book signing, and to meet and greet entrepreneurs from the technology, web, micro-business, mom and pop, brick and mortar, entertainment, and music communities. . .all in one room.

This event is free and space is limited. Parking structure behind the building at $5.

For sponsorships, please contact Dave, Sasha or Dennis.

See you then!

all the best,

The 106 Miles Crew
