Derek Sivers is an American entrepreneur and author that began his professional career as a touring musician. In 1997, at the age of 27, he started CD Baby – an online shop for independent artists. Ten years later, sales amounted to $100m and he sold the company for $22m. In this book, Sivers explains his somewhat unorthodox view of entrepreneurship, which evolved from involuntarily becoming a big business owner. Sivers has traveled the world and lived in Singapore, New Zealand and England. In 2008 he started a new company that helps musicians and he is currently working from Oxford in England .
