Happiness is something we hear about every day. We hear people say it all the time "I'm happy about it," "We are a happy family," "I'm not happy" and on and on. Yet we hear it in the movies and in songs that we want to be happy, to find happiness, and we think we know what that is and we think we know where it is hiding. If we could only get that one thing, that thing that will turn our life around and then we could be happy forever. No more sadness. When I ask people if they're happy I always get the proverbial deer in the headlights look because the question stumps them and it stumped me too for about 60 years but I believe I have found the answer and I definitely know how to answer that question now if I were to be asked. Chasing the rainbow to find that pot of gold or that treasure chest of happiness just isn't going to happen but it's not all bad news. Actually it's good news because I believe that anyone can get closer to having complete happiness just by recognizing how to do it, where to find it, and how to disengage from those things in your life that make you unhappy. Once you read through this book you will understand what I mean and you will also be able to quickly answer the question as to whether you are happy or not without hesitation.

We are cocreators, both directing and observing this movie called life. So are you cocreating this quest with me! Are you not producing a holographic image of this book, which contains words that we have manifested into time and space together? Like every book, this book, Making It Home, has already been written. The question you should ask is, “What part about these words and this book do I need right now in my life?” If you know the right question—or “quest you are on”—your mind will produce an answer out of the material of life itself, and the book becomes a catalyst for your own story. When you read—and more important, think—about the information in these pages, your chakras will activate, and new cognitions will be created about heaven. This of course depends on one condition: that you have a deep-seated desire to achieve joy, love, and peace in this lifetime.

In The $100 Startup, Chris Guillebeau shows you how to lead of life of adventure, meaning and purpose – and earn a good living. Still in his early thirties, Chris is on the verge of completing a tour of every country on earth – he’s already visited more than 175 nations – and yet he’s never held a “real job” or earned a regular paycheck. Rather, he has a special genius for turning ideas into income, and he uses what he earns both to support his life of adventure and to give back. There are many others like Chris – those who’ve found ways to opt out of traditional employment and create the time and income to pursue what they find meaningful. Sometimes, achieving that perfect blend of passion and income doesn’t depend on shelving what you currently do. You can start small with your venture, committing little time or money, and wait to take the real plunge when you're sure it's successful. In preparing to write this book, Chris identified 1,500 individuals who have built businesses earning $50,000 or more from a modest investment (in many cases, $100 or less), and from that group he’s chosen to focus on the 50 most intriguing case studies. In nearly all cases, people with no special skills discovered aspects of their personal passions that could be monetized, and were able to restructure their lives in ways that gave them greater freedom and fulfillment. Here, finally, distilled into one easy-to-use guide, are the most valuable lessons from those who’ve learned how to turn what they do into a gateway to self-fulfillment. It’s all about finding the intersection between your “expertise” – even if you don’t consider it such -- and what other people will pay for. You don’t need an MBA, a business plan or even employees. All you need is a product or service that springs from what you love to do anyway, people willing to pay, and a way to get paid. Not content to talk in generalities, Chris tells you exactly how many dollars his group of unexpected entrepreneurs required to get their projects up and running; what these individuals did in the first weeks and months to generate significant cash; some of the key mistakes they made along the way, and the crucial insights that made the business stick. Among Chris’s key principles: if you’re good at one thing, you’re probably good at something else; never teach a man to fish – sell him the fish instead; and in the battle between planning and action, action wins. In ancient times, people who were dissatisfied with their lives dreamed of finding magic lamps, buried treasure, or streets paved with gold. Today, we know that it’s up to us to change our lives. And the best part is, if we change our own life, we can help others change theirs. This remarkable book will start you on your way.
