Anything You Want – 2013

Anything You Want by Derek Sivers

I picked up this book expecting a quick fluff piece.  How wrong I was !

Derek leads us through his founding and floundering through the creation of CD Baby.  A company he built from his bedroom to employ 85 people and finally sell for $ 22 M.

More importantly is the information gleened from an entrepreneur who did NOT want to build a bigger business.  Wonderful insights to service based, not monetary drive business model.

It is a quick read, only about an hour.  One of the best breathes of fresh air I have experienced in a couple of years.  Thoughts for service, for growth, for thinking outside the box.  I will utilize the ideas for many years to come.

Not taught at our schools of higher learning, a great counter-balance.  Enjoy the read !
