Guillebeau’s latest accomplishment is his book called The $100 Startup. In his travels around the globe, he met 1500 people who, like him, have been able to make a good living from their own creative ideas. According to Guillebeau, this kind of achievement doesn’t require a whole lot of capital; many of the people he met were able to start their projects for about $100. With chapter titles such as “Hustling: The Gentle Art of Self-Promotion,” Guillebeau’s book draws on these stories about people who are doing what they love for a living and provides a guide for readers who might want to do the same.
