Derek Sivers is a musician, producer, circus performer, entrepreneur, TED speaker, and author.

In this conversation, we spoke about how to attract an intelligent audience, how living abroad has changed him, why people follow norms, and why his autobiography will go live the week he passes away.

To me, Derek is the gold standard as a creator. Everything he does is thoughtful and of extreme quality. If you like Derek Sivers, I like you.
