Derek Sivers on Tinder Dating Strategies, Finding Purpose and the Art of Singapore

Derek Sivers, is a kind of a reluctant entrepreneur, circus-clown musician turned author.

In 1998, Derek created CD Baby by helping his friends sell their CDs. It became the largest seller of independent music online, with $100 million in sales for 150,000 musicians.

In 2008, Derek sold CD Baby for $22 million, giving the proceeds to a charitable trust for music education. He went to speak at the TED Conference, for 3 times in 2010 (which is unheard of), with more than 18 million views of his talks. Since 2011, he has published 34 books, including “Anything You Want,” which I love so much. 

In this conversation, we spoke about:

  • What Derek loves about Singapore 
  • Things he learnt about sex 
  • How and when to use “feeling” when making decisons
This is one of my favourite interview, enjoy!
