Things have gone and are going to be as far from “business as usual” for hopefully weeks, but probably months. In this podcast Paul Jarvis, designer and author of Company of One, has thoughtful conversations with small business owners and entrepreneurs negotiating new economic realities from the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you’ll join us as we shine a light on small business owners adapting, evolving and providing much needed bright spots of humanity.
How Do We Show Up?
In this final episode, Paul checks in with his first four guests to see how their businesses are doing, and how they are showing up for their communities amid yet another global crisis.

Real yet hopeful - just what’s needed
Over the course of the last month, we started dividing the world into BC and AC (before and after coronavirus). This is a great series to listen while trying to figure how the AC world is going to look. It’s honest, realistic yet with a ray of hope. Thank you!
Leave it to Paul...
One of the most valuable things right now is hearing real-time (or close to) stories from people just like us about what’s happening on the ground where they are. Thank you Paul for opening this connection. Looking forward to the next episodes and to weathering this thing together.
