Chris Guillebeau

Writer, traveler, entrepreneur. Visited every country in the world; still traveling. Host of #SideHustleSchool - new episode every day!

During a lifetime of self-employment that included a four-year commitment as a volunteer executive in West Africa, he visited every country in the world (193 in total) before his 35th birthday.

Chris’s first book, The Art of Non-Conformity, was translated into more than twenty languages.
