Chris Guillebeau is an American entrepreneur, nonfiction author, blogger and speaker. He is best known for The Art of Non-Conformity blog and book. The Art of Non-Conformity blog discusses entrepreneurship, travel, and personal development topics; its traffic grew substantially after the online publication of A Brief Guide to World Domination in 2008. The site has an Alexa ranking of under 30,000 and is among the top 15,000 most visited sites in the United States. He also maintains a blog at Anderson Cooper 360.
Every summer in Portland, Oregon, he hosts the World Domination Summit, a gathering of creative, remarkable people with thousands in attendance. Guillebeau is also the founder of Pioneer Nation, Unconventional Guides, the Travel Hacking Cartel, and numerous other projects.
Guillebeau is a graduate of the University of Washington and of Athens State University. He volunteered with Mercy Ships, a medical charity, in West Africa from 2002-2006. He cites that experience as a pivotal point in his life that led him to his quest to do community service and fundraising, topics featured in his writing. He visited every country in the world (193 in total) before his 35th birthday. Since then he has modeled the proven definition of an entrepreneur: “Someone who will work 24 hours a day for themselves to avoid working one hour a day for someone else.”
Guillebeau's first book, The Art of Non-Conformity, was translated into more than twenty languages. Guillebeau's second book, The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future, was released on May 8, 2012. It reached #6 in its respective category on the New York Times' bestseller list. His third book, The Happiness of Pursuit, was published in September 2014 and was also a New York Times bestseller. His fourth book, Born for This, will help you find the work you were meant to do. His fifth book, Side Hustle, will help you create a new source of income in 27 days.

I have worked with many agencies to book guest speakers over the past 5 years. My experience with AAE has been the best. The website, search facilitation software, and speaker briefs were great. The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
