Derek Sivers founded CD Baby, one of the largest suppliers of independent music on the web. With over $100 million dollars in sales for over 150,000 independent artists, you’d have to believe this man knew exactly what he was doing. Turns out, he didn’t. Or, at least, probably not in the way you might think. His approach to life is incredible. He could care less about money, fame or power. When he sold CD Baby for $22 million dollars, Derek gave all the money to a music charity, keeping only what he was legally bound. (5% per year of the company’s sell price).
