Greetings from midtown Manhattan, where a large amount of coffee is about to be consumed in a corner room at the Doubletree hotel.
Today is the day.
After three years of research and writing, it’s finally here.
The $100 Startup is going out to the world!
Hundreds of people from all over the world have helped in the making of this book. It’s their story of freedom and your blueprint for change.
The central message of the book is:
If you want to create more freedom and security for yourself through a “very small” business, the skills and the money you have are all you need. Don’t wait!
You can pick up the book from any major bookseller:
We had a couple of pre-order promotions already, so for now I’ll just mention one thing. Publishing is a strange industry with a lot of quirks. One of these quirks is that the success of your book depends a great deal on what happens during the first two weeks.
If you’d like to help—and if you’re interested in the book—now is the time. I do most of my work for free and don’t accept donations or sponsorship on AONC. I’d like this book to do well, so for once I’ll say: if you’ve been waiting to pick it up, now is the best time.
If you have a blog or website (of any kind), I’d be extremely grateful for your links and reviews as you read the book over the next month. I owe you cupcakes and gratitude.
The Tour Begins Tonight!
The world’s first 7-continent book tour begins tonight with the official launch here in NYC. We’ll be at Housing Works (130 Crosby Street) at 7pm. Everyone is welcome. AONC events are not “readings” and I usually talk for 20 minutes or less. The rest of the time is Q&A and informal hanging out with fun people.
Sign up for an upcoming location over here. (Yes, tickets are FREE!)
Thanks so much for being part of this. The goal for this book is to help thousands of people quit their jobs and find freedom by making something valuable that improves the state of the world.
As I said yesterday, whatever success we’ve had thus far comes from the support of you, the readers. The same is true of this book, and I hope it makes a strong connection with your own journey.
Onwards and upwards!
P.S. No comments today, but you can head back to yesterday’s post if you’d like to chime in.
