Book Description

June 29 2011
Best known for creating CD Baby, the most popular music site for independent artists, founder Derek Sivers chronicles his “accidental” success and failures into this concise and inspiring book on how to create a multi-million dollar company by following your passion. In Anything You Want, Sivers details his journey and the lessons learned along the way of creating CD Baby and building a business close to his heart. “[Sivers is] one of the last music-business folk heroes,” says Esquire magazine. His less-scripted approach to business is refreshing and will educate readers to feel empowered to follow their own dreams. Aspiring entrepreneurs and others trying to make their own way will be particularly comforted by Sivers straight talk and transparency--a reminder that anything you want is within your reach.

Read his review of Derek Sivers's Anything You Want:

I love this book!

Derek is the entrepreneur's entrepreneur. Just as important, perhaps more so--he is a phenomenal teacher. Whether detailing the fascinating rise of CDBaby, explaining catastrophic (but common) founder mistakes, or teaching me about relational databases in two minutes using analogies, he makes the complex simple. Moreover, he makes it all actionable.

If you want a true manifesto, a guidebook with clear signposts, and a fun ride you'll return to again and again, you have it here in this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. --Tim Ferriss

About the Author

After making a living as a professional musician, Derek Sivers went looking for ways to sell his own CD online and ended up creating CD Baby, once the largest seller of independent music on the web with over $100M in sales for over 150,000 musician clients. Since 2008, Derek has traveled the world and stayed busy creating and nurturing creative endeavors, like Muckwork, his newest company where teams of efficient assistants help musicians do their “uncreative dirty work.” Derek writes regularly on creativity, entrepreneurship, and music on his blog:

Loved this book!

Our book club author Parin Patel wrote:
When Derek Sivers started CD Baby in 1998, he simply wanted a way to sell his own CD.

Derek’s journey from a musician, to business owner, to entrepreneur, has been filled with many life and business lessons which he shares in Anything You Want. And perhaps the most powerful lesson is just that: you can have anything you want.

Actionable Books summarized this through their book club, to check out the rest of Parin's summary, go to [...]

4.0 out of 5 stars Great role model March 23 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fair and honest man builds store with bare hands. Store grows in size while owner remains hardworking and committed to his suppliers. A balance of customer satisfaction and profit is realized and one day, sensing his usefulness at the store has passed, wisely sells store and uses 95% of proceeds to fund a charity of great importance to the man. A modest lifestyle is sustained with the balance and the fruits of a life well-lived are his gift to the universe. Amen.

Short and nothing new. It was ok. I bought it because I read his blog and think he's probably a really good guy. The book didn't blow my mind
