Summary

Paul Jarvis talks about why bigger isn't always better and how you can push back against a world that's constantly bullying you into growth.

Show Notes

For the curious

Paul has a new book coming out called Company of One in January. He also publishes a weekly newsletter that's one of my personal favorites called the Sunday Dispatches.

On the podcast he  broke down some interesting revenue numbers. His business makes about $500k per year and he isn't trying to grow beyond that.

He spends $90k of that on living expenses and about $70-80k on business expenses (mostly freelancers almost, no software). After taxes, the rest goes to savings (over half of his revenue).

That's amazing and we talk about how he did this on the podcast.
