OMG OMG OMG I'm so excited :-)
Sorry for fawning like a 12-year-old Justin Bieber fan, but I have to openly admit that I LOVE DEREK SIVERS.
I've been reading his blog for years, watched him speak at TED, I'm subscribed to his newsletter...and today we've got him dishing out gems of information to all the young AppSumo-lings.
See, Derek lives the kind of life I wanna live. He's a guy that pursued his dreams in music, and wouldn't have it any other way. He also started a business based on his true passion (music)...and it turns out he was pretty damn good at it because...
He started his company, CD Baby, with only $500 and no investors. 10 years later it was sold for $22,000,000!
So he truly embodies the "Follow your passion and money will follow" ideal we all want (I sure as hell want that...)
Not only did he make a lot of money...he then immediately gave most of it away to help other musicians. Talk about truly believing in what you do!
So now Derek is set for life financially, and spends his time making other companies to even further help musicians. Cool place in life to be eh?
So did Derek just "get lucky" with his business? Not really.
He's learned things along the way that helped him succeed...and in this video course for AppSumo-lings ONLY, he dishes the secrets that brought him that success, including:
