Book Giveaway! The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau

Live the New Economy is ultimately about my efforts to reinvent my own life, in ways both large and small, and to find non-traditional ways to make my transition from military life to civilian life and, in the process, gain some real autonomy and quality of life for my family.  For those who have been here for awhile, you've already witnessed many of the changes that we've made to head that direction, including:

  • Starting the LTNE site
  • Experimenting with other niche sites
  • Monetizing our sites
  • Creating an LTNE presence on social networks
  • Radically reducing our debt
  • Cutting our spending and living more frugally
  • Increasing our income
  • Living more intentionally

I really consider these things to be the tip of the iceberg.  We've not yet hit our six-month mark in our humble experiment and I think the next few years hold the promise for much more!

But, I also wanted to thank all of you for reading the site and also ask you to help us get the word out about what we are doing here.  I've already highlighted a few books that I've really enjoyed and that have recast the way I view non-traditional opportunities for success in the new economy.  The real value of most of these books is that they fire up the imagination and remind us all of things that are possible if we just take some risks.  One of the books, I've enjoyed recently was Chris Guillebeau's The $100 Startup.  Since I originally owned it as a Kindle copy, I recently purchased an actual hardback copy from and I'd like to give it away to one of my readers!  

One thing else:  I plan to inscribe the book with my name and the address of this site.  My vision is that the winner of the book do the same when he or she is done reading it and then pass it on.  If you have your own site, maybe you can host your own raffle and encourage your winner to keep passing it on!  

Can't wait to read it or want it on Kindle?  Purchase a copy now and, if you win, I'll reimburse you via Paypal for the cost of the book (subject to the terms below), once you suitably demonstrate to me that you actually purchased the book!  

We're a small site and not some big corporate entity, so I'm sure our "fine print" is woefully inadequate in some legal sense, but I reserve the right to amend any of these terms over the course of or after the giveaway in the event that something that I've not accounted for comes to pass.  Note the restrictions on non-US entries!

Please enter below and I hope you continue to enjoy the site!  If this goes well, I'll do other giveaways in the upcoming months!
