Ah, to be an entrepreneur... to work 24 hours a day for yourself in order to avoid working one hour for someone else. 

In this video interview on Behind the Brand, the non-conforming world traveler and bestselling author Chris Guillebeau describes how he had to learn how to craft his own way, knowing that he wasn't someone to answer to someone else -- though, he did work for a time for FedEx.

"Then I started selling things on eBay and realized I could make $20 an hour as opposed to $8 working for FedEx," he says. 

Guillebeau's fourth book, Born for This, was released this past April.
