The $100 Startup, Chris Guillebeau
In this book, Chris Guillebeau highlights over fifty case studies of everyday people who invested as little as $100 into their ideas, and eventually developed them into life-sustaining businesses. Guillebeau himself is a world traveler, already having visited more than 175 nations, and has never held a “real job”. The $100 Startup emphasizes the need to find your “expertise” which will lead to a self-fulfilling gateway of success.

It offers step-by-step checklists which can help quickly develop a high-quality business plan, time-saving tools for the planning process, tips for success in reaching one’s business goals, and even a sample plan to develop ideas from. This vibrant book also offers links to online resources that can help entrepreneurs get started on their journey. We highly recommend it to all with a business idea they are chasing!
