Love everything Paul Jarvis does

I first heard Paul on another podcast years ago and signed up for his weekly Sunday email. Now I appreciate this podcast that highlights how a company of one (or just small businesses) can thrive and be sustainable without having to strive for being a major corporation. It’s very relatable in that way unlike a lot of business podcasts that interview people with gigantic businesses that I cannot relate too.

I am looking forward to reading his book!

Welcome to the future

The future is not $100M venture-backed startups that have to return a 100X ROI within four years or be considered a failure. It is not late nights playing ping pong in your office to stay away to push another app update at 2am. It is not burnout and mental health issues that you can't address because of company culture. The future of business is here. It is now. It is this podcast.
