News & Opinion: Chris Guillebeau in Milwaukee!
I’m writing to let you know that your services are no longer required. Thanks for everything, but I’ll be doing things my own way now."
Imagine that today is your final day of working for anyone other than yourself. What if—very soon, not in some distant, undefined future—you prepare for work by firing up a laptop in your home office, walking into
a storefront you’ve opened, phoning a client who trusts you for helpful advice, or otherwise doing what you want instead of what someone tells you to do?
All over the world, and in many different ways, thousands of people are doing exactly that. They are rewriting the rules of work, becoming their own bosses, and creating a new future.
Whether you have an idea you think could become a full time venture, or are an entrepreneur looking for fresh inspiration, join us as we welcome Chris Guillebeau on tour with his newest book, The $100 Startup! Chris will talk about ideas and research from the book and hold an open discussion about how everyone in the audience might make the leap into entrepreneurship. Details below...
