Company of One

Company of One

Published by: Paul Jarvis
13 Episodes | First Released: Mar 14 '18
Company of One explores what happens when businesses challenge the idea that bigger is always better. The show explores a conversation around what happens if growth isn’t the byproduct of success. It's based on the book, Company of One (forthcoming from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on January 15, 2019). The host, Paul Jarvis, is a writer whose work has appeared in Fast Company, WIRED, USA Today and more. He’s taught over 13,000 students through online courses and has worked with companies like Microsoft, Mercedes-Benz and Marie Forleo in design and online business consulting. The first season is 10 episodes and includes conversations with Laura Roeder, Jason Fried, Danielle LaPorte, Dan Provost, and Spencer Fry.

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.

More Paul

I’ve followed Paul online for years and always appreciated his forthright and honest take on running businesses at the bootstrapped end of the spectrum. The podcast is that same sensibility in audio form and time well spent.

Perfect Paul Jarvisisms!

This podcast is quintessential Paul Jarvis. Concise, thoughtful, logical advice for freelancers and entrepreneurs who want to keep it small yet profitable.

Great insight from great people

I don’t think the freelance zeitgeist gets the transformational power of the idea behind Company of One yet. Paul Jarvis is consistently ahead of the curve. The interviews provide concrete details about how successful people have managed to build companies on a smart (not necessarily large) foundation. And I absolutely love the short format—who has time for a one-hour podcast that is mostly repetitive anyways? Thank you for choosing quality over quantity—it’s a beautiful trademark to own.

Small lenght of time but worth it

I'm enjoying this new format interviewing people plus explaining their strategies in a mighty small length of time, instead of the normally 2 hour long episodes from other people! Great episodes from Paul and the interviewees!

So refreshing!!

I love the way Paul distills information down into easy to understand talking points. As an employee AND freelancer, I hope to become a company of one some day. I love hearing the real case studies from people who are managing to run successful businesses on their own terms. It’s a welcome break from the more, more, more message I get living in Silicon Valley.

Hell, yes! We need more thinking like this.

Give credit where credit is due. Paul Jarvis has been talking about small scale business and the health and wellness of work for a long time, and he is still ahead of the curve. Businesses should serve humans---this escapes many people today. As the owner/worker of three businesses of literally one, I fully believe more people need to reliquish growth for growth's sake and figure out how to make work meaningful and sustaining in all aspects. With integrity, transparency, and commitment, Paul is refreshingly not just another Silicon Valley fanboy slinging the latest froth. He is moving the conversation forward in a positive and thoughtful way.
