Do you love the idea of making money on your own — without a boss?
Can you imagine deciding how you spend each day?
Are you bored and looking for a challenge? Do you love the thought of adventure?
Today’s guest, Chris Guillebeau, knows all about hustling, living an unconventional life, working towards seemingly impossible goals, and combining his interests into an epic lifestyle business that brings him freedom and joy.
Chris is the New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Non-Conformity, The $100 Startup, and The Happiness of Pursuit. He has traveled to 193 countries, served four years as a volunteer in West Africa, and is a successful speaker, writer, and entrepreneur.
Oh yeah, and he’s a high school dropout. (A super accomplished high school dropout.)
How did Chris accomplish so much without a high school degree? How did he forge a path toward his goals despite depression and anxiety? What advice does he have for aspiring side hustlers and entrepreneurs? Find out in today’s episode.
You’ll enjoy this episode if:
- You love inspiring stories about creative, globe-trotting entrepreneurs who create their own rules
