Derek Sivers Entrepreneur Guide

If you have never heard of Derek Sivers before, you are going to love this. He is the founder of CDBaby.com, who built the company from nothing, then sold it for millions and instead of buying a luxury yatch and living the life of O’Reilly, stuck the lot into a trust to help musicians.

Now he travels the world delivering what, to me, is the ultimate message in running a company, managing people and, well, basically having a good time instead of the typical Urgent/Important Headless Chicken Syndrome.

So, do go take a look at what he has to say here

Quentin Pain
