Media Bio (A brief diversion into third person…)
Chris Guillebeau is a New York Times bestselling author and modern-day explorer.
During a lifetime of self-employment that included a four-year commitment as a volunteer executive in West Africa, he visited every country in the world (193 in total) before his 35th birthday. Since then he has modeled the proven definition of an entrepreneur: “Someone who will work 24 hours a day for themselves to avoid working one hour a day for someone else.”
Chris’s first book, The Art of Non-Conformity, was translated into more than thirty languages. His second book, The $100 Startup, was a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, selling more than 700,000 copies worldwide. His newest book, The Money Tree is all about finding the fortune in your own backyard.
His daily podcast, Side Hustle School, is downloaded more than 2 million times a month.
Every summer in Portland, Oregon, Chris hosts the World Domination Summit, a gathering of creative, remarkable people with thousands in attendance. Also, Chris would like everyone to know that he was social distancing before it was cool.
