One of the best talks I listened to in 2015 was Derek Siver’s intervention at WDS 2015. In case you don’t know Derek, he is the founder of CD Baby, an online store for independent musicians.
CD Baby was born almost by accident in 1997 when Derek was selling his own CD on his website, and friends asked if he could sell theirs, too. CD Baby went on to become the largest seller of independent music on the web, with over $100M in sales for over 150,000 musician clients.
Derek’s talk is full of insights and stories from his CD Baby venture. You can watch the full 41-minute video on Chris Guillebeau’s blog.
