​Chris Guillebeau

You don’t have to live your life the way others expect

Chris Guillebeau has one of the hardest to spell surnames of anyone on Every Day Should Be Fun.

I’m not holding that against him, (although he will be referred to as simply “Chris” from here on)

Chris has travelled to every country on earth.

Every one of them.

Even the small ones you though were made up.

From his manifesto a brief guide to world domination, to the follow up 279 to overnight success (both free) to his best selling book The $100 Startup which covers businesses started with minimal funds, Chris shows you that life is what you make of it and you are in control.

Chris’ philosophy is simply:

  1. You don’t have to live your life the way other people expect
  2. You can do good things for yourself and help other people at the same time
  3. If you don’t decide for yourself what you want to get out of life, someone else will end up deciding for you
  4. There is usually more than one way to accomplish something

One of the most important things to check out is Chris’ blog, his frankness about subjects such as anxiety and simple things such as you should do what makes you happy.
