The international bestselling author of The $100 Startup shows us how to enjoy greater career success and personal fulfilment by finding the work we were born to do, whether within a traditional company or business, or by striking out on our own.
Chris Guillebeau knows better than most that there's no single model for what a dream career should look like. After all, he has enjoyed a lifetime of meaningful self-employment as an author, entrepreneur and modern-day explorer, with 'jobs' that have included visiting every country in the world before his thirty-fifth birthday and penning three bestselling books.
In Born For This Guillebeau shows readers how to create their own self-styled career, offering a practical, step-by-step guide for finding the work that feels so perfect it doesn't even feel like work, whether by launching a 'side hustle' that turns a passion into a profitable business, winning the 'career lottery' by finding a dream position within a traditional organization, becoming a 'DIY rock star' by fashioning an entirely new profession around all of one's many varied interests, or 'hacking' an existing humdrum job into work they love.
Whatever you care about in your personal and professional life, Guillebeau offers an actionable method and framework for turning your passions into pay cheques. Praise for The $100 Startup
