'A true manifesto, a guidebook with clear signposts, and a fun ride you'll return to again and again'
Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Workweek
The iconic manifesto on lessons learned while becoming an entrepreneur
You don't need a visionary master plan, loads of funding or a brilliant team to start a business.
All you really need is GENEROSITY.
When Derek Sivers started CD Baby, he wasn't planning on building a major business. He was a successful independent musician who just wanted to sell his CDs online. He started in 1998 by helping his friends sell their CDs too. In 2000, he hired his first employee. Eight years later, he sold CD Baby for $22 million.
Sivers didn't need a business plan, and neither do you. You don't need to think big; in fact, it's better if you don't. Anything You Want will inspire you to start with what you have, care about your customers more than yourself, and run your business like you don't need the money.

Short sharp and to the point.
Probably the most humble normal successful guy who sums up some of the best business lessons you could learn in a book that's under a hour to read. Amazing. Learn it before you get lost in it.
Business (and life) sound bites
There is some great ideas here written in Derek’s typically short and sweet style. It’s not superfluous, like lots of books out there. I appreciate Derek for his reflective and thoughtful ideas, and this book has a lot of them.
