When anyone can start a business (when everyone is running their career like a business), it begs a question. This is your one chance at life, you can have anything you want, what is worth doing?
Most people don't know why they're doing what they're doing. They imitate others, go with the flow, and follow paths without making their own.
They spend decades in pursuit of something that someone convinced them they should want, without realizing that it won't make them happy.
Anything You Want is a manifesto about living life, appreciating enough, and doing what matters. It's most of what fabled entrepreneur Derek Sivers learned in ten years of starting and growing a small business, compacted into something you can listen to in an hour and a half. A life worth living starts with knowing your personal philosophy of what makes you happy and what's worth doing.

passionate reader & writer
Sivers reminds you that even very successful business people make big mistakes and inspires you to go easy yourself. A failure is not a failure. It's a discovery of yet another way things don't work.
Thank you so much for your time in helping people. It's very rare to meet people like you. I believe when you do, it is contiguous and a life changer. Thank you once again!
I liked the little vignettes but really liked the performance by the author. Would recommend to anyone interested in the workings of a small one-man shop that, against all intentions, grew to a $20-million business. Neat little life pro tips too.
Being a small business owner myself and trying to find value in business while staying true to one's self AND how to install a mindset of customer first, ahead of personal wealth is golden and so eloquently shared by Derek . A nugget to cherish amongst the millions of crappy superficial business jargon books.
Loved the book. A very quick listening. Loved how he split his advices into 40 small chapters. Will recommend anyone who is self employed.
I really enjoyed this book. I've been reading Derek's blog for a while but didn't know the complete story of CD Baby. It was a wonderful story. I will listen to this again for sure.
