  1. Christ, what a TREAT it was to hear this interview. It not only was informative, but gave me HOPE that becoming an entrepreneur CAN be done.
    MANY thanks for the great podcasts!
    p.s. you are NOT a dork, however, IF you were, you would be the world’s most loved Chris LoCurto Dork.

  2. I would like the book because I am venturing out into the world of entrepreneurship and would love to have a guide such as this to help me get underway in the proper fashion.

  3. If you’re a dork, I guess that would make us “Little Dorks”?

    I would like a copy of the $100 Startup so I can brag about it like a sore winner. Not really. I would love a copy so that I can get more information and ideas about how to take an idea I have and turn it into an income source. The practical information is great because I don’t have much money to start with!

  4. I would like the 100 Startup book to be able to put into practice all the great material I have been learning from listening to Chris LoCurto and all the Entreleadership podcasts! A small investment that can yield big results. Thank you!

  5. It was a great show. I need guidance in helping my partner who is in the process of taking her hobby (yoga) and turning it into a business. She has less than $100 to get it done. (maybe less)

  6. I am a $100 start up, however, I did so out of necessity and not from being prepared. Over the years I have come to the conclusion that I make a good technician but not a business man. Over the last year I have been taking in every word of every interview you have and have been putting it to use. I have already been seeing tangible results coming from it. Though I have already spent my $100 and have started several years ago, I would love to read Mr. Guillebeau’s book. I am stepping back and rebuilding, I can use all the material I can get! Thanks!

  7. I am always looking for new ideas and new inspiration, and a way to teach my team that you don’t need to borrow money to start a business.

  8. As a Manager of a Team building company, we don’t hire, we contract. But we always try to find ways to help build up our contractors for success. In turn we find creative ways to partner and bring invaluable programs to our clients. After listening to the interview this would be a great resource into our shared library.

  9. As a college student with a whole life left to live i feel as though reading this book would provide me with many new ideas I would have never thought of before. I also loved the interview.. Keep up the great work the podcast are awesome!

  10. Based on EntreLeadership and Chris Locurto Podcasts, I started a business this year for $0 and have already netted a few thousand dollars. I would really interested to learn how much I could make with $100 of startup money.

  11. My wife and I are both trying to start up our own businesses/organizations. Hers, cute clothing for babies and toddlers, and me, an online fundraising tool to help people in need. It would be great to have this book to give us insights into what we can be doing to get our passions off the ground!

  12. You know Chris, I’m always up for free stuff, but I bought this book MONTHS ago, so I think you’ll just have to give it to someone else 🙂 It is fantasitc book and those who dont get a free copy, I HIGHLY recommend purchasing it!

  13. Thanks for the interview and the opportunity to win the book. I have thought about becoming an entrepreneur but haven’t come up with that brilliant idea for little or no investment. I could also see this as a good opportunity to help develop my kids in the area of business and management. Being they are homeschooled it would be good training for life on starting a company with such a little investment.

  14. I would like a copy so I can better plan my next startup. I have started several businesses in the past, but all have started out in debt, I’m tired of trying to play catch-up before the business can grow-up.

  15. I would love a copy of $100 startup because the concept is amazing and liberating. To know that I can start a simple business that experiences uncommon success is inspiring. I want to learn how to create value in the marketplace.

  16. Appreciated Chris G’s comment that you should “listen” to what other people are asking for. Not so much from Chris L’s perspective of being considered an “expert”…but that you never know where ideas and opportunities might come from. I recently met a guy that had difficulty finding someone to re-screen the windows at his home…and now he has an active business doing just that. He saw a marketable need and filled it. Chris G’s book would provide a fresh look at opportunities…how to see them and act on them.

  17. Thanks for the podcast and the interview. I am interested in this book as my wife is in the process of starting up a business right now and I am definitely interested in doing it in the most economic way that we possibly can.

  18. My husband and I are in the process of trying to open our own business. I will devoure the book. Gleaning the experience from successful people is the perfect ingredient to the startup receipe.

  19. My wife and I were at the EntreLeadership Performance Series in Nashville last week. YOU DID AN AMAZING JOB.. We have already implemented so many things we learned and thanks for spending some time talking to us about our event and running stores. I listened to four of our Podcasts yesterday. The book will just give us another extension to the program and you did say leaders need to read more… Thanks Chris

  20. I would like the $100 start up to know what to first start using the $100 for. I think I started with just $80 and that was for the domain name and web hosting. I should have used the other $20 for Aweber. lol!

  21. Hubby and I have been brainstorming a business idea for the past few months. This book would help it to come to fruition. (If I dont win, I will get the book anyways. 🙂 )

  22. I frequently share ideas with people. Many are looking for something that they can do on their own to either fulfill something in their life or to take on an entirely new career destination. The book would be a great tool for a quick answer/idea or to provide a catalyst for something similar. And at less than $100 the cost of entry barrier doesn’t become an issue. Thanks for the ongoing podcasts and extended conversations.

  23. I would like a copy of Chris’s book because I’m trying to launch a new business on the side to encourage and equip good men to be great husbands and fathers. I want to do it responsibly without going into debt and feel like Chris’s book will go a long way to providing wise guidelines to follow.

  24. Thanks for the podcast and the book opportunity. You’re super generous! Working in the non-profit world, I am learning the value of championing vision and the value of people in making the vision a reality. I would like a copy of the $100 Startup so I better understand the principles of starting and sustaining a business over time and to dispel the myth that you have to go into debt to do so. Thanks again 🙂

  25. Success leaves clues. Courage believes in hope. Hope believes in the man with little. Give that man a $100 idea that may change his life and it probably will! I’ll read the book and pay the knowledge forward!

  26. Great interview as always. I recently was doing work for a startup that did a lot of these things wrong. Failure is a great teacher but I hope to avoid the same mistakes when it is my business

  27. Thank you for the interview. It was great. I have a son who just graduated high school and really doesn’t know what he wants to do, although he knows he wants to make a difference. I plan to share this interview with him. It might give him some inspiration that it doesn’t take much to “get started”

  28. Chris, I have been listening to your podcast on Entreleadership this summer and trying to incorporate the lessons with my high school students. The majority of my students come from broken homes, poverty, and seemingly no hope situations. This book could show them how they can change their lives and future!
    Thank You for the helpful insights each week!

  29. I would love to win this book because I need some inspiration and motivation. Listening to the podcast intrigued me. Since I got laid off last month, I am eager to boost my freelance career full-time and I believe this book will help! Thanks for reading!

  30. I would love the book because I am constantly coming up with new ideas and directions for different businesses and would like to Discover the the process and principals of the $100 Start Up. I have decent Ideas but have been told that for the kind of investment that is involved it might not be worth it.

  31. I am in the ‘practice’ phase of the transition toward my dream job and have been doing things for 100% discount (i.e., free.) I could use this book to learn how to bootstrap my way toward profit and get the boat closer to the dock so I can jump, and catch fiberglass. are a collection of group-based activities and adventures that inspire new ways of thinking.

  32. I am a loyal podcast listener since the beginning and I have learned a lot of day to day applications from your guests and Dave Ramsey’s team. The book “$100 Startup” seems to provide small business like myself more “real biz experience” on how to increase productivity and leadership. I expect to learn a lot from this book if I win it!

  33. As an area Chamber of Commerce, we are always looking to surface impact-full educational opportunities for members. 60% of our membership base is comprised of Entrepreneurs & Small Business Owners that could benefit from access to this type of material. After taking part in the podcast, I truly believe that there are some really great “Nuggets” and Lessons to be learned from Chris Guillebeau & the $100 Start Up Book! I am personally interested in receiving the book to become a better educated leader in the community. Thank You
