“Seven years ago, I sat in awe reading a blog from some guy named Chris Guillebeau. I couldn’t believe the hope and hustle he was writing about while I sat there stuck in a cubicle. Seven years later, he’s still a sage guide to me and millions of others who love the books he writes. If you’ve ever wondered, ‘What should I do next?’ read this book!”
Jon Acuff, New York Times bestselling author of Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work, and Never Get Stuck

—Shawn Achor, New York Times bestselling author of Before Happiness
