The $100 Startup – Bootstrapped Startup Success Stories

bootstrapped startup

I love books, and especially business books that are jam packed with inspiration and actionable advice. This is definitely the case with Chris Guillebeau’s The $100 Startup, a tome full of bootstrapped startup success stories and lessons learned along the way.

I’m especially excited to be sharing this book review with you today because of a few reasons:

  1. I believe it is possible to build a bootstrapped startup, which means that you don’t need to get a huge bank loan or get venture capital funding. This book shows you how.
  2. I’m honored and thrilled to be featured as one of the case studies in the book, starting with my Raw Foods Witch business journey.
  3. I believe that this book covers one of the most difficult parts of starting a business: figuring out what you’re going to offer to customers, to ensure it’s something they want to buy.

Without further ado, here’s my book review of The $100 Startup.

Chris Guillebeau interviewed hundreds of entrepreneurs for the book. Do you have a bootstrapped startup story that you’d like to share in the comments below?

Either way, I’d love to hear your advice for bootstrapping a business – either on the side of a full-time job or as a main gig but on a budget.
