An evening with Chris Guillebeau, Life Entrepreneur
vr 19 mei 2017, 20:00 – 22:00 CEST
“Never despise small beginnings, and don't belittle your own accomplishments. Remember them and use them as inspiration as you go on to the next thing. When you venture outside your comfort zone, wherever the starting point may be, it's kind of a big deal.” - Chris Guillebeau
Chris Guillebeau is a New York Times bestselling author and modern-day explorer.
During a lifetime of self-employment that included a four-year commitment as a volunteer executive in West Africa, he visited every country in the world (193 in total) before his 35th birthday. Since then he has modeled the proven definition of an entrepreneur: “Someone who will work 24 hours a day for themselves to avoid working one hour a day for someone else.”
Chris’s first book, The Art of Non-Conformity, was translated into more than twenty languages. His second book, The $100 Startup, was a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, selling more than 500,000 copies worldwide. His third book, The Happiness of Pursuit, was published in September 2014 and was also a New York Times bestseller. His fourth book, Born for This, will help you find the work you were meant to do.
Every summer in Portland, Oregon, Chris hosts the World Domination Summit, a gathering of creative, remarkable people with thousands in attendance. Chris is also the founder of Pioneer Nation, Unconventional Guides, the Travel Hacking Cartel, and numerous other projects.
Chris on speaking:
"Every year I speak at dozens of events, companies, organizations, and universities. Recent engagements have included Google, Facebook, LeWeb, SXSW, Evernote, The Motley Fool, Hallmark, GrowCO, and Carnegie Mellon University.
My adventures in writing books have taken me to media events in 15 countries, including a 9-city tour of India. For my first book I met with readers in all 50 states and every Canadian province. I’ve also spoken or hosted events at more than 100 independent bookstores throughout North America and beyond. A few of my favorites are Powell’s, Vroman’s, Tattered Cover, University Way Books, Book People, the Harvard Coop, and Green Apple Books.
And of course there are our own events, WDS and Pioneer Nation, which I’m grateful to host every year."
