That’s the question CD Baby founder Derek Sivers faced when he sold his company.
His answer: He gave it all to charity.
I told them, “I donít even really want the money. I want it all to go to charity anyway. I just want to know that I donít have to get a job at some point later in life. I want to know that Iím taken care of, but I think it could be harmful for me to have $20 million.”
Which reminds me of Fred Gratzon’s definition of success:
Here is how I know someone is successful — If you are able to give from your abundance then you are successful.
