You can’t really go anywhere online without hearing about Chris Guillebeau or his ultra-famous blog, the Art of Non-Conformity. He’s remarkably well known – and with good reason: Chris challenges conventional beliefs and helps his audience do the remarkable… on nearly zero budget.
Chris puts his money where his mouth is: He’s visited 193 countries without ever having held a “real” job or earning a regular paycheck. And during his extensive travels, he’s managed to continually write for his A-list blog, build an empire of training resources and publish several books, his latest being the $100 Startup (of which I have a copy in my hot little hands).
Chris writes – a lot. And from the strangest places, too, like third-world airports between lonely red-eye flights and Bedouin tents in the desert while grunting camels lurk just outside.
Alright, maybe the camels are an exaggeration, but clearly this devotion to writing (sometimes under incredibly tough circumstances) requires some sort of magical skill to maintain. It’s nothing short of amazing… and you’re going to learn Chris’ secrets.
I’ve invited Chris Guillebeau to sit down with me for a casual conversation, all about writing. Just how does he keep going? How can he manage to write so well and so consistently from all these crazy locations? And what’s with his eclectic blog that breaks all the “stick to your niche” rules?
You’re going to learn Chris Guillebeau’s writing secrets – all of them.
Join Chris and me on April 30 at 1pm EST and listen in as we discuss writing from anywhere in the world, how to consistently feed a hungry blog and crafting bestseller books without ever losing focus. This call is going to be valuable, especially if you want to leverage your writing skills to live off your success.
You won’t want to miss this conversation – you’ll pick up writing techniques, tips and advice that let you walk away feeling smarter, sneakier and ready to tackle new goals. Chris and I will discuss:
- The truth about writing, and whether you absolutely need to do it
- How to continually feed your blog, even when you don’t feel like it
- Tips to keep writing when you feel lonely, isolated and discouraged
- Advice on writing while you travel and what to do in crazy locations
- The difference between blogging and books – and which you should choose
- The secret to facing your writing critics and what you should tell them
- How to be an eclectic writer who still stays in your niche
- Whether you should outsource your writing or do it all yourself
- How to persevere and stay focused on your writing goals
This conversation is going to be great: Chris is a true gentleman and a real pleasure to talk to, and he’s passionate about challenging people’s beliefs about traditional careers and employment. He’s practically THE freelancer advocate.
In fact, you could say Chris is your key to a better, more fulfilling career. (Even if all you have is $100.) After you listen to our call, you’ll feel inspired to plan your next great escape… with confidence you can write your way there.
