I keep meeting so many women with hopes of setting up a small business, something on the side while they still work full-time, or take care of their kids at home. But money and fear seem to get in the way of them moving forward with their entrepreneurship dreams.
This is why I like Chris Guillebeau‘s $100 dollar business idea. Chris is one of those rare individuals — an independent thinker, a non-conformist and visionary. If you’ve never heard about him, I encourage you to visit his website and learn some very interesting things about this guy (who’s currently traveling around the entire world and keeping his blog readers updated, one country at a time).
Chris makes a great argument that most business don’t need much financial capital to start running. In fact, $100 is all you might need. Click here to read this weekend’s reading recommendation.

The 2010 Latino Family Holiday Guide features an affordable and creative variety of gift items that promote Spanish language and Hispanic heritage, many of which are designed to fit everyone’s budget. The guide, now in its third yuletide season, includes everything from CDs to ornaments to T-shirts by innovative artists and entrepreneurs from all over the country.
It will run through January in order to celebrate the Day of the Magi (El Día de Los Reyes Magos) on January 6 – the traditional day for exchanging gifts in many Spanish-speaking countries. New product listings may be added through December 15th, so be sure to check back often.
