I’ve been a Chris Guillebeau fan for what seems like forever. I’m continually impressed by his abilities as a writer. He’s visited places I’ve only dreamed about. He hangs out with tigers (and the tigers seem to like his book). Those reasons are definitely enough to win me over, but I think that he may be an inspirational read for you, as well. That’s because Guillebeau consistently inspires people (not just me) to actually take action and do something they’ve been thinking about for a while. If you’ve been in need of someone to help you get your ball rolling, here are a couple of ways you can let Guillebeau rock your world.
- Read his blog. If nothing else, just click over to Guillebeau’s blog, The Art of Non-Conformity. Just start reading, and you’ll quickly understand what I’m talking about. In particular, I’d recommend reading 279 Days to Overnight Success, A Brief Guide to World Domination and The Case for the $100 Business.
- Read his book. I received a review copy of Guillebeau’s book, also titled The Art of Non-Conformity (D), read it an afternoon and have since made several people read it. As soon as the latest borrower returns it — usually try to tell me how fantastic it is and how they’ve got something new they’re working on as a result — I shove it into someone else’s hands.
- Talk to Guillebeau on Twitter. Provided he’s not traveling, Guillebeau is very active on Twitter — and by active, I mean that you can chat with him far more easily than you might expect for a guy with nearly 50,000 followers. Right now, Guillebeau is traveling to every state in the U.S. for the Art of Non-Conformity book tour and, if you want to meet him in person, he’s talking about where he’s showing up through Twitter.
- Come hear him in Baltimore. If you’re in the Baltimore, Maryland area, Guillebeau will be in town on October 12. He’ll be talking at the University of Baltimore at 5:30 p.m. Let me know if you’re interested in going — I’m working on getting a count on who will be there, so we can plan an after-party.
