At the recommendation of Kat Fulton and Rachel Rambach, two amazing music therapist, I took a risk and purchased yet another book today. I managed to read all of “Anything You Want” by Derek Sivers while I worked out this afternoon. Yes, an hour read or less. I downloaded the Kindle version this morning and received a gift of music to boot. I have taken a little time to listen to the downloads. Now I have a few new favorite songs!
While it is a business book it is so much more. It has things to take into life. Here are two quotes as examples. The first is from page 11:
Success comes from persistently improving and inventing, not from persistently doing what’s not working.”
And from page 51:
…it’s about what you want to be not what you want to have.
To have something…is the means, not the end. To be something…is the real point.
The book is one I will read again. A music business model that is customer centered seems to transfer in many ways to a music therapy business – a client centered profession. Have you read this book? If so, please share them in the comments below.
