Interview with Chris Guillebeau, author of the book The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future
One of the characteristics was curiosity and that’s how they kind of stumbled into their business model, was often by asking questions and seeking big profit where other people have kind of overlooked something. Another characteristic maybe was just the willingness to take action rather than remaining in paralysis.
In fact that willingness to give it a shot seems to be the key ingredient.
A lot of people have business ideas, just like a lot of people want to write a book or a lot of people want to travel but it’s only a minority of those people that kind of follow through.
Starting an internet based business seems to have a lot of appeal but it’s not the only option.
We talked to plenty of people who had started retail businesses and offline businesses but I do think it is somewhat easier to start an online business. Or even if it’s an offline business using online media to extract customers and clients and I do feel like the cost is much lower, the access to an existing marketplace is there and also these days more and more are becoming comfortable with online shopping.
