You may or may not have noticed my brief retreat from this blog last year. In an inspired and opportunistic moment, I left my job and decided to travel half the world. After professing my intentions to my friends, my friend Maigh recommended I read a book called The Art of Non-Conformity: Set Your Own Rules, Live the Life You Want, and Change the World. Sounds awesome – sign me up. It’s an inspiring read, much like the very popular 4-Hour Workweek. It was a little diatribe’y for my taste but made some excellent points that everyone should hear.
The author, Chris Guillebeau, has completed his second book, The The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future and is on a US tour in support of the release. He will be visiting Atlanta on Tuesday, May 15 from 6:30-8:00PM at Urban Oasis B And B. If you make it, please thank him for contributing to my inspiration for the 23 countries I visited last year!
