"$100 Startup" author meet and greet

Imagine a life where all your time is spent on the things you want to do.

Imagine handing a letter to your boss that reads, “Dear Boss, I’m writing to let you know that your services are no longer required. Thanks for everything, but I’ll be doing things my own way now.”

Imagine that today is your final day of working for anyone other than yourself. What if—very soon, not in some distant, undefined future—you prepare for work by firing up a laptop in your home office, walking into a storefront you’ve opened, phoning a client who trusts you for helpful advice, or otherwise doing what you want instead of what someone tells you 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.

 

1) Most of all, show up and say hi to someone. The best thing about any $100 Startup gathering is the other people who come out, and this book tour is no exception.

2) Anyone can take photos, anyone can bring cupcakes, and everyone is welcome to buy a book for signing or just come to hang out -- any of the above is totally fine.

3) If you have a friend who might be interested, feel free to bring them along. I'll give a short talk about the book followed by Q&A and a signing, but we'll keep the whole event short, informal, and fun.

Most important: I'm looking forward to seeing you! This will be fun.

Yours in World Domination,

Chris Guillebeau

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
