If you read my personal blog, you’ll know that I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately while trying to carve out time to do even more. (Silly things like eating and sleeping keep getting in the way!) The dilemma is only getting more difficult this week, as I have another new book on my “to read” shelf. It is Chris Guillebeau’s “The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love & Create a New Future”.
Lest you read the title and think the book is probably not for you, I encourage you to check out Michael Ellsberg’s interview with Chris on Forbes.com, which you can link to here. I have never considered myself entrepreneurial by nature, and yet Chris’ book could also apply to me, as could Michael’s book “Education of Millionaires”. In fact, it doesn’t matter if your goal in life is to work for someone else, you can learn how to do that better, how to achieve those goals faster and in a more fulfilling way by reading these books which at first glance may seem to be only for “entrepreneurs”.
If you are quick about it, you can buy Chris’ book, devour it over the next 48 hours and then on Friday….get ready….it’s launch day for another book on creating the life you want; this is a book I’ve been spouting about for a couple of months now. (Points to you if you know which one I’m talking about.)
Curious? You’ll have to wait until Friday. But no worries, “The $100 Startup” can keep you company till then.
