A good friend of mine recently told me about a book she was reading called $100 Startup: Fire Your Boss, Do What You Love and Work Better to Live More by Chris Guillebeau.  I love a good book, except rarely do I read novels, rather my reading matter of choice generally has a business focus.  I like the inspirational rather than the instructional and this book fits the bill.

Her recommendation sent me scuttling off to Amazon and, impatient soul that I can sometimes be, I immediately downloaded it onto my Notebook Kindle Reader.
I am not a Kindle convert, I prefer to have a book in my hands, so that amongst other things I can turn down the corners to mark points of importance to me.  Somehow the bookmark function in Kindle doesn’t quite do it for me in the tactile way having the real thing does.

I absolutely loved this book.  The author collated stories of business start ups, run by people with passion and which were started on a budget, many of less than $100.
The point being to illustrate that you can do it too. Yes you can.  I found myself with a notebook to hand coming up with idea after idea, prompted by the case studies in the book, but here’s the thing: all of my ideas were related to things I enjoy and am passionate about.

Having read it on the Kindle I then decided I wanted my own hard copy for quick and easy reference and for a re-reading.  So now I am on my second read through and the ideas keep coming.

So, if you find yourself stuck for inspiration why not get yourself a copy today and you never know where it might lead.
