The Urban Oasis will host Chris Guillebeau’s Unconventional Book Tours Atlanta Stop. Chris is a traveler, a writer, and a darn good businessman, and does it all in his very own special non-conforming, unconventional way. In fact he is the author of the Blog, The Art of Non Conformity and book of the same name.
For those of you who do not know, Urban Oasis is a bed and breakfast by night and New Tricks World Headquarters by day. My business, Urban Oasis found out about Chris Guillebeau through my other business, New Tricks, where we do web design and social media marketing for small biz. When I discovered Chris’s Art of Non Conformity blog a year or so ago, it made me smile and was right up my ally. I went to Berkeley, if you didn’t know. Urban Oasis and New Tricks are both very glad that Atlanta book stores are very small and we have such a large, cool space. Just the unconventional setting for an Unconventional Book Tour for a bunch of cool unconventional people in the best neighborhood in town.
Chris had set a goal of visiting every country in the world by the time he was 35. In an effort to achieve this goal, Chris visits about 20 countries a year and has made a huge dent in his endeavor. Recently, upon the release of his book, Chris set that goal aside for the year in order to visit every state in the US plus a bunch of Canada on a self-funded, Unconventional Book Tour. He will have traveled to 63 cities at the end of these shenanigans.
The Art of Non-Conformity is all about world domination, setting your own rules, and making a lasting difference. Be sure to check out the free download of Chris’s personal Manifesto, 279 Days to Overnight Success.
The event is free of charge and all royalties that Chris earns from the sales of his book he has pledged to will go to Water Partnership a charity he has committed to raising $500,000 for wells in two Ethiopian Communities.
We hope to see you here. It will be a blast!
