Chris GuillebeauÂ has long been a hero and mentor of mine since I first receivedÂ The Art of Non-ConformityÂ for Christmas in 2011 and started learning how to Travel Hack. I also stole the first two words of that book for my own brand!
During a lifetime of self-employment that included a four-year commitment as a volunteer executive in West Africa, Chris visited every country in the world (193 in total) before his 35th birthday. Since then he has modeled the proven definition of an entrepreneur: â€œSomeone who will work 24 hours a day for themselves to avoid working one hour a day for someone else.â€
Chrisâ€™s first book,Â The Art of Non-Conformity, was translated into more than twenty languages. His second book,Â The $100 Startup, was a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, selling more than 300,000 copies worldwide. His latest book,Â The Happiness of Pursuit, was published in September 2014 and was also a New York Times bestseller.
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.
