Anything You Want


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

You can follow the beaten path and call yourself an entrepreneur or you can blaze your own trail and really be one. 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. When no one would help him do it, he set out on his own and built an online store from scratch. He started in 1998 by helping his friends sell their CDs. 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. Start with what you have, care about your customers more than yourself, and run your business like you don’t need the money. From the Hardcover edition.

Anything You Want


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Best known for creating CD Baby, the most popular music site for independent artists, founder Derek Sivers chronicles his "accidental" success and failures into this concise and inspiring book on how to create a multimillion-dollar company by following your passion. Sivers details his journey and the lessons learned along the way of creating and building a business close to his heart. In 1997, Sivers was a musician who taught himself to code a Buy Now button onto his band's website. Shortly thereafter he began selling his friends' CDs on his website. As CD Baby grew, Sivers faced numerous obstacles on his way to success. Within six years he had been publicly criticized by Steve Jobs and had to pay his father $3.3 million to buy back 90 percent of his company, but he had also built a company of more than 50 employees and had profited $10 million. Anything You Want is must reading for every person who is an entrepreneur, wants to be one, wants to understand one, or cares even a little about what it means to be human.

You Can Get Anything You Want But You Have To Do More Than Ask


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

"Roger Dawson shows you how to become a good negotiator not just in business deals but in day-to-day life. To get what you want, Dawson believes you have to understand and be comfortable with the three stages of every negotiation. You Can Get Anything You Want teaches you those stages: Clarify the objectives -- find out exactly what the other side wants; Get as much information as you can about the other party -- what motivation lies behind his demands? Reach an agreement -- make compromises until a mutually satisfactory conclusion is achieved. Dawson will teach you crucial tactics to ensure that your negotiations are successful: Recognize the value of time so you're not pressured into last-minute decisions. Never jump at the first offer, no matter how good it looks. Know your opponent so you can use his weakness to your advantage. Always negotiate back and forth so the other side feels like a winner. Be prepared to walk away instead of conceding, so you leave the door open for the next round. You Can Get Anything You Want will show you how to recognize and adjust to different personality styles so you can get what you want regardless of the situation" -- Backcover.

Keep Going


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Keep Working. Keep Playing. Keep Creating. In his previous books Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work!, both New York Times bestsellers, Austin Kleon gave readers the keys to unlock their creativity and showed them how to become known. Now he offers his most inspiring work yet, with ten simple rules for how to stay creative, focused, and true to yourself—for life. The creative life is not a linear journey to a finish line, it’s a loop—so find a daily routine, because today is the only day that matters. Disconnect from the world to connect with yourself—sometimes you just have to switch into airplane mode. Keep Going celebrates getting outdoors and taking a walk (as director Ingmar Bergman told his daughter, ”The demons hate fresh air”). Pay attention, and especially pay attention to what you pay attention to. Worry less about getting things done, and more about the worth of what you’re doing. Instead of focusing on making your mark, work to leave things better than you found them. Keep Going and its timeless, practical, and ethical principles are for anyone trying to sustain a meaningful and productive life.
