$100 Startup (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.419

Aimed at helping readers to start their own successful businesses even with a limited budget, the book is filled with unique stories to inspire all those who want to begin their own business.

Summary Of The Book

The $100 Startup: Fire Your Boss, Do What You Love And Work Better To Live More is all about how people can chase their dreams and live their lives by following their passion. As most people feel that it is the lack of money that prevents people from chasing their entrepreneurial dreams, through this book, the author puts together a profile of successful business people who have started their businesses with limited investments. Through a case study of 50 people, the author discovers that despite the lack of extraordinary talents, these people discovered how a hobby could be used as a medium to earn money.

While some people were forced to start their own ventures due to unforeseen circumstances, for others it was their passion and skill that enabled them to begin new ventures. All these were possibilities which became opportunities for those who were ready to take the risk. From the first step of deciding a viable business venture to even starting a franchise, the author takes the readers through the journey of business development. In addition, beginning a business does not need a lot of money, but just requires will power and creative thinking.

By spotting the best opportunities and taking advantage of them, these people managed to make money. For example, Brett Kelly discovered that there was a lack of a manual or guide for the Evernote. By writing a manual for the application, he not only earned money with it, but was eventually employed at Evernote as well. Filled with such interesting stories, the book tells how the information age provides every individual with a chance to strike it big. Such stories also stress on the fact that it is not just passion that makes a person successful, but also how passion when channeled at the right time plays a crucial role in enabling a person to achieve success.

Written with a sense of practicability, The $100 Startup: Fire Your Boss, Do What You Love And Work Better To Live More provides a pragmatic and focused approach into building a business. With new strategies and checklists, the author provides insights to help readers to establish and run a successful business.

The hundred rupee wakeup

I first read about this book in The Economic Times and immediately looked up flipkart. i am glad that I bought it. When I was half way through the book, I decided to have my own website and registered two domain names. I am now preparing material for my websites. This book is helpful to entrepreneurs. If you are a 9 to 5 person, this will not serve you.But if you have read RICH DAD POOR DAD and looking for step by step guidance, this IS the book.

Do you need kicks to startup?

A very simple, thought provoking book for the mind which wanders on what to do next?

How people turn their passion to create meaningful business which can not only get them money, but give them peace of mind.

Simple, yet powerful stories of people around the world who have started up for a living, to follow their passion and to utilize their skills.

Few stories are more useful for the common person who wishes to keep his/her day job and still do something which they are good at and make an additional income.

Good one...

A nice book to get started with a startup

Summary of my review: I would give 8/10 to this book. Would recommend to anyone who wants to get started with startups. Caution though - this is not a detailed account of startups

Opinion: A very fresh and welcome read in the startup segment by Chris. What I loved about and what this book is definitely not compared to few other startup books that i have read is that this is not a professional scientific, clerical book on staartups which give you a picture of each startup becoming a multi-million dollar business and then gives you ways to do it which while reading excites you but, maybe not...

Opinion: A very fresh and welcome read in the startup segment by Chris. What I loved about and what this book is definitely not compared to few other startup books that i have read is that this is not a professional scientific, clerical book on staartups which give you a picture of each startup becoming a multi-million dollar business and then gives you ways to do it which while reading excites you but, maybe not possible practically.

This book starts with the basics of how to get started and in my opinion that is actually the way to get started. Imagining on the first day of starting up that your venture is gonna be facebook 2 then you are talking like my just born kid is going to be the next Usian Bolt.

For a change, I was really pleased to see Chris provide stories of the startup heroes who are everyday normal people like you and me. Compared to other reading material I was happy to see that non-Harvard/Staford/Wharton/IIT/IIM people can also do it and make more then good money - that for me was the biggest driver to keep reading this book.

What a waste of time and money!

Don't judge a book by its cover! ... the only good thing about this book is its cover. there are 1000times better books on the subject of money like the rich dad series and Think and grow rich. As far as the info in here is concerned regarding money on the internet, you can find that on the internet as well! The writer is a dumb ass who is trying to cash in on the online money making dreams of a novice. The writing shows a lack of clarity of thought (and a sense of direction in writing as well). You would come across these lame diagrams and formulaes/equations that seem to be inspired from... ()

You would come across these lame diagrams and formulaes/equations that seem to be inspired from those of rich dad and other online money making formulas (good content generates traffic on websites/company, and traffic generates money).
May be some of the case studies of successful businesses be useful for some but even there the writer seems to have done a terrible job in the way he has gone about. So,I do not recommend this book.

PS - I am sorry if i sound over critical but i was hugely disappointed by the way the dish was served. It seems it was the writer's "$100 startup" to make money.

Ok to read. What you get out of this book depends on you.

I read about this book while traveling to Delhi during July 2013. The reviewer had showered lots of praise on this book so I was curious to read it.

I am unable to decide whether this book should be categorized as a Management Book or a Self-help kind of book. There are many interesting stories about people starting with minimal resources and then making it big. There are also many tips and tricks with the planning process - some cheat sheets, tables, etc. Somewhere, you lose interest in the book if you have bought it just to entertain yourself (that is, you actually don't plan to apply an...

There are also many tips and tricks with the planning process - some cheat sheets, tables, etc. Somewhere, you lose interest in the book if you have bought it just to entertain yourself (that is, you actually don't plan to apply any of the ideas, tips, tricks in the book).

However, like any self-help book, what you get out of this book depends on what you want. For someone who is planning to start his/her own business, it may be a useful book. However, we must remember that its just a book, and to do anything in life, we have to actually spend time, risk money, risk failure, and so on.

Inspirational if nothing else

This book urges you to get started immediately, but is focuses more on the internet based business model. While the modern day internet technology cannot be ignored, it is not the end all, be all of start up ideas. Not all businesses deliver software based products or services.The author could ha...
