Relationship Problems: Should you take business advice from your spouse?

Today I’m writing you from Italy about a topic that can get as firery as a good sugo all’arribbiata!

Riddle me this:

Have you ever taken — or totally resisted — business advice from your spouse/significant other?

For many of us, we resist way more than we take. So strange that it’s often the person we love the most that we hate to take advice from.

Well if you can relate to this struggle, watch as I share four simple, but powerful, questions to ask yourself to help relieve the tension.

B-School 2013 Scholarship Winners Announced!

Since last week, we’ve been poring through nearly 600 scholarship entries videos for B-School. (That’s a record high for us!)

It’s been an absolute privilege, on behalf of myself and my team, to watch each and every video that has been submitted this year.

We’ve been laughing, crying, hootin’, hollerin’ and sending notes back and forth all week. Most of the time, though, we’ve just been in serious awe of you.

Who you are, your courage, your insight, your creativity and your willingness to go for it.

As you know, we believe in the power of B-School and sincerely hope you’ll join us for it.

But if, for whatever reason it’s not the right fit, know that we’re still cheering you on. We will continue to be here for you: providing education and inspiration each and every week, for free.

I’ll be honest, when I first announced this contest, I didn’t know what to expect. You’ll see that you’ve inspired me to award a lot more scholarships than any of us imagined.

Here are our 31 winners of a full B-School Scholarship for 2013.

Chris Guillebeau on The 100 Startup

As I’m writing you, the only sounds I hear are the gentle rustling of bamboo leaves and the song of a happy bird outside my window.

It’s truly a magical summer here in Sag Harbor and I feel extremely grateful to be here and share a bit of my joy with you.

Location freedom is one of the things I wanted most in life. While it took me a number of years to make this a reality, I gotta say it was worth the wait.

The choices we make now affect the opportunities available to us in the future. @ChrisGuillebeau Click To Tweet

How To Transition From Your Day Job To Your Dream Business

I’m officially back from Barcelona (OMG was it good!) and happily slipping into summer time goodness.

One of the things I love about summer is that we spend 90% of our time at the beach. We wake up, do yoga, make juice, work for a few hours, and then hit the sand. It’s an awesome lifestyle that I feel truly grateful to experience.

How To Start Turning Your BIG Idea into Reality

Oooooh child!

The last week has been an incredible whirlwind of crazy goodness for how to start a business.

From a soul’d out Selling Your Soul event, to welcoming a hot crew of new B-Schoolers, to a massively successful three day retreat including an all day session at Virgin with my Adventure Mastermind ladies here in NYC, I’ve been cooking with gas.
