      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    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.

    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-mil...

    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...

    Simple, yet useful

    This 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.

    But most importantly, it showed me that there a lot of people who have taken risks and it somehow made me feel less ambivalent about my own career choice.

    Very useful book, different way of thinking

    Would 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.

    The book definitely gets you thinking in directions you may not have thought possible earlier. With real life examples, this book makes the theory believable.
