Born for This

Born For This

Chris Guillebeau is someone who I’ve looked up to for some time. Back when I was first starting to think about starting a business, I bought his first book The $100 Startup. As someone new into the business world, I admired how he designed his career and his life. He was doing exactly what I wanted to be doing – traveling the world, helping people reach their big goals in life, and making a good income. His content has always been solid so I naturally picked up this latest book.

In Born For This Chris dives into the topic of how we can do work that matters. A topic that I am deeply passionate about.

Despite some really well thought out ideas and good writing, I wasn’t thrilled with this book. It just seemed like there was too much going on and there wasn’t a consistent/strong message. I think if you were to take this book and flip it open to a random chapter, you could get some great content out of it. Chris is a great writer and there are definitely some gems in here – just wouldn’t rank high on my reading list.

Who This Book is For…

Someone who is looking for a bunch of ideas to help them start a business or a side-project.
