A Conversation with Paul Jarvis about Staying a ‘Company of One’

We often take it as a given that businesses should always grow — but is that really true?

Writer, designer, podcaster, and software creator Paul Jarvis has a lot of experience with all kinds of business.

He’s written a thought-provoking new book called Company of One, about the assumption that “bigger is always better,” and how we can make more conscious decisions around business growth.

In this 23-minute episode, Paul and I talk about:

  • Some of the benefits to questioning business growth
  • Whether we can really thrive in a small company in a field that has giant competitors
  • The counterintuitive benefits to staying small
