In early spring 2016 we’ll release the last (small and final) round of tickets for WDS 2016, a global gathering like no other! If you’d like to join us, be sure you’re on the waiting list for first notice.

But first, we’re rolling out speaker videos from the 2015 event. Derek Sivers, founder of CD Baby, author of Anything You Want: 40 Lessons for a New Kind of Entrepreneur, and all around non-conformist shared with us his secrets of success.

Check out the video!


“Don’t pursue something that someone said you should want instead of what you really want”

“Don’t commit to one idea of the future but instead, commit to a problem that you want to solve. Then you can stay committed to the problem and continually try to find the ongoing and ever-changing answer to that problem.”

“If people aren’t loving what you’re doing. Just stop. Don’t persist. Don’t push it.”
