The contest is over for a copy of Chris Guillebeau’s latest book, The $100 Startup.
Thank you to everyone who weighed in with a comment on the business they would start today, if time, money, and fear were not in the way.
I love your creativity and your desire to craft a business that is infused with your personality!
I wish that I could award a book to all of you, but alas, that I cannot do (unless Chris wants to send more books my way).
Originally, I was going to give away one copy of the book, but since I have acquired an extra, and I love giving away stuff, I now have two books to gift!
The first lucky winner is Cris Gladly! Her response to the question of what business she would start if money, time, or fear were not obstacles, is as follows:
I would start The Terrified Traveler in a more substantial way. My biggest challenge is the $$ factor, figuring out how to start from zero and get the dream live b/c in doing so, it becomes more than just a blog about one never-traveled-before girl learning how to boldly see the world… it becomes a resource about transcending the same fear and obstacles for hundreds and hundreds (and thousands) of people like me who are craving to get out there and need someone they can relate to lead the way.
And the second saucy winner is Alyssa Middleton, owner of Vintage Body Spa. Here’s her reply:
I’m in the infancy stages right now but will flush out even more through this round of B-school my business supporting mom entrepreneurs to simplify their businesses while increasing profits so that they don’t feel like they have to choose business over family, relationships and self care. I’d also love to create holistic getaways for these moms to tap into their creative side and get some pampering and rejuvenation so they can bring their best selves into their businesses.
And honestly, as trite as it sounds, everyone had great answers and business ideas.
If you haven’t read the book, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy and explore the idea of creating a business—your way, on your own terms, now!
