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 wakeupI 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.

Simple, yet usefulThis book offers useful tips without being preachy. It covers enough examples so that you relate the theory to reality and you'll find at least one story that resembles your own. Personally, it helped me identify things that I could do to improve my freelance career as a writer and look out for possible obstacles.

Very useful book, different way of thinkingWould highly recommend this book to people who have always been thinking of starting on their own but are constantly thinking 'how'. Also for those people who think that huge capital investments are not their way to start.
