Transition Whatcom first sent this video to its list members, and I think it's truly excellent for anyone wishing to make a change, or be a part of change.

Here's Derek Sivers' blog post with both the video AND the text of the narrative for those who can't load video.



Sivers' narrative is elegantly brilliant.

BTW, Sivers was the founder of CD Baby, which he sold for millions, most of which he gave to a charitable trust to support independent musicians.

(Edited to fix the details around the sale of CD Baby.)

I just love Derek Sivers' perspectives on business.

Here is another more recent video from a talk he gave in 2015, "don't pursue something that someone said you should want"

https://player.vimeo.com/video/134968996 (somehow, I can't get this link to play in the Vimeo embed...)

I like his tips about how to have a human scale business even better than choosing what to pursue with a career (or avocation).
