Chris Guillebeau (born April 4, 1978) is an American author, entrepreneur, blogger, and speaker. He initially received attention for his entrepreneurship and travel blog, The Art of Non-Conformity, which led to the publication of a book of the same name in 2010. Since then, he has published six additional books, including The $100 Startup (2012), Side Hustle (2017), and most recently, The Money Tree (2020), his first novel. He also organizes the annual World Domination Summit in Portland, Oregon, and hosts the daily podcast Side Hustle School.

In 2008, Guillebeau founded the blog, The Art of Non-Conformity, which discusses a number of topics, including entrepreneurship, self-employment, and travel. In June 2008, he released a free e-book through the blog entitled A Brief Guide to World Domination, which was ultimately downloaded over 100,000 times. Also, in 2008, Guillebeau started using his blog to document his own goal of traveling to all 193 countries in the world by his 35th birthday in April 2013. The trips were funded primarily through self-employment income, accumulated airline miles, and other travel reward programs. He visited the last country on his list, Norway, on his 35th birthday.
