Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Everything you want in a great biz/self-help book"

    I've listened to this twice in the last 48 hours and will probably do it again tomorrow. It's short and sweet but packed full of great insights for how to operate your business and possibly your life. Also a great listen for new entrepreneurs (like myself) who are looking for a positive kick in the pants to get motivated and start doing the thing you've always wanted to do! His ideas are very non-traditional but in my opinion are exactly what you need to stand out in the world and become successful...

    Story
    "Very Cool Little Biz Book"

    This straightforward, unassuming, and brief book is something like a list of business proverbs illustrated by stories from the author's experience founding and growing CD Baby. I appreciate Derek's common sense approach - it frequently produces tasty nuggets of uncommon wisdom. Super cool book with tons of value. I recommend it.

    "Great book!"

    Love the real life lessons and fluff-less nature. Wish many 'nice' books have this same brevity and are fluff-less. Will definitely be recommending to others.

    "Fun!"

    This was the first audio book I've ever bought and I couldn't be happier with my choice. I listened to it on my drive to see my family for Christmas. Derek makes the book so fun to listen to and he fills you with his passion! It's all about the customer, and as your newest customer, you've won me over.

    "Valuable, short and sweet"

    Listening to Derek himself narrate his personal story of building CDbaby from scratch is an amazing experience. He is clear about what is important in life and is down to earth, and that really came through in this audio book. There's something about an audio book being read by its author that makes it 10x better than reading on paper.

    Thanks for writing this, Derek!
