Book Review: The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau

The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future by Chris Guillebeau
My Rating 5 out of 5 stars

If you're thinking about starting your own business, this is a great place to start.  Chris Guillebeau has done a great job of gathering the wisdom of hundreds of small-business owners and compiling it in a way that helps you think through the process and steps of getting started.  It contains good counsel on how to look around you for opportunities that you have the skills to provide solutions for.  He also provides great one-page worksheets for business planning, partnership agreements, product launches and other activities.  Because of Chris' leg-work you won't have to recreate the wheel, instead you can just make minor modifications to suit your needs.  Overall this is a really helpful book and I would highly recommend it.  Between this and Made To Stick by Dan and Chip Heath which I just recently read I've discovered two of my favorite business books.
