I’ve been a musician, producer, circus performer, entrepreneur, TED speaker, and book publisher.

I started CDBaby and HostBaby long ago. My short audio/book, Anything You Want, tells you everything I learned while starting, growing, and selling the business.

Monomaniac, introvert, slow thinker, and love finding a different point of view.

California native, I now live in Oxford, England.

I love hearing from people, so please email me at derek@sivers.org and introduce yourself.

Yes it’s really me, and I reply to all.

“Steve Jobs gave a small private presentation about the iTunes Music Store to some independent record label people. My favorite line of the day was when people kept raising their hand saying, "Does it do [x]?", "Do you plan to add [y]?". Finally Jobs said, "Wait wait — put your hands down. Listen: I know you have a thousand ideas for all the cool features iTunes could have. So do we. But we don't want a thousand features. That would be ugly. Innovation is not about saying yes to everything. It's about saying NO to all but the most crucial features.”
Derek Sivers

“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.”
Derek Sivers, Anything You Want

“Don't be on your deathbed someday, having squandered your one chance at life, full of regret because you pursued little distractions instead of big dreams.”
Derek Sivers, Anything You Want
