Welcome to the First Annual Red Dog News 12 Days Until Christmas
Each day I will post another gift suggestion for the photographer(s) in your life. Most gifts will be very inexpensive, with one or two overly expensive gifts offered just because.
I hope you enjoy the Red Dog News 12 Days Until Christmas:
Below is the review I wrote in amazon.com:
“Author Chris Guillebeau has written a book, “The $100 Startup,” that should fly off the shelves. Endorsed by such legendary entrepreneurs as Seth Godin, “The Bootstrapper’s Bible”; Tony Hsieh, Zappos.com; John Jantsch, “Duct Tape Marketing”; and Erin Doland, “Unclutter Your Life in One Week,” “The $100 Startup” will surely find a welcome spot in your business and/or entrepreneurial library.
Whenever I first come across one of these “business” books, I take a cruise through and see how it might relate to me and my passion of photography. As it happens, Guillebeau has a few great references to photography here, as well as a good deal of other business ideas and suggestions, along with a tremendous amount of real-life examples.
I simply can’t say enough about this book and have already recommended it to many of my friends. I even recently featured it on my blog, RedDogNews.com. Many relevant examples lead you through many a process that will definitely serve to awaken the entrepreneurial spirit in many of its readers.
Darren Rowse began blogging in 2002, and turned writing for several of his personal blogs, including Digital Photography School, into a full-time occupation making six-figures. Throughout “The $100 Startup” there are dozens of examples of people who started with next to nothing to build their own life-enhancing careers. When you get his “must-have” read, be sure to read about the mattress man!”
“It’s all about finding the intersection between your expertise–even if you don’t consider it such– and what other people will pay for,” Guillebeau writes on the cover flap. “You don’t need an MBA, a business plan, or even employees. All you need is a product or service that springs from what you love to do anyway, people willing to pay, and a way to get paid.”
Most of the pages of my book are already dog-eared and crumpled from reading certain sections over and over. There is much to be learned from this book, no matter your career or side-business pursuits.
