SPOS #315 - A New Kind Of Startup With Chris Guillebeau

Welcome to episode #315 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. Julien Smith (co-author of Trust Agents with Chris Brogan and the author of The Flinch) was downright mad at me. We have lunch on a frequent basis and we're constantly slamming ideas and names at one another. It makes for a lively conversation. The other week, he was downright disgusted with me because I had never met Chris Guillebeau. Chris is the author of The Art Of Non-Conformity - Set Your Own Rules, Live The Life You Want And Change The World and the recently published, The $100 Startup - Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future, which became an instant bestseller. Along with that, he's the co-organizer of what is quickly becoming one of the "go to" events for those trying to create a remarkable life in a very conventional world called, World Domination Summit (which took place at the beginning of this month in Portland, Oregon). This idea of non-conformity and unconventionalism is a theme that binds Chris' life. He's about to turn 35 and complete his personal journey of visiting every country on earth (out of close to 200, he has a mere 8 to go). While he's never had a "day job," he seems to be doing just fine owning, operating and executing on many micro-businesses. He explains that his entrepreneurial history has ranged from importing coffee from Jamaica, search engine optimization in its early days, Google Adwords and Adsense arbitrage, to building a small publishing company while volunteering in Africa. He now writes and sells a product he calls, Unconventional Guides. Simply put, he's a fascinating individuals with many business lessons that we could all learn from. Enjoy the conversation...

    Your discussion made me feel like Neo from the Matrix after he took the red pill and began realizing REAL life was outside cubicle land - with real benefits and real risks.
    Just bought The $100 Startup via Amazon 1-click on my Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Man we live in a cool world!

    My whole life I've been thinking that I'm the only person on this planet who thinks of a tie as being the most ridiculous piece of clothing. No I know, I am not alone. Thank you very much for that discovery!
