About Paul Jarvis

Paul provides a universal message that applies to people no matter where you are in life. Paul talks about so much that I, and others who run their own business, will relate to in a deep way, and is a beacon for us like-minded people.

By questioning why you have the need for ‘more’, calling yourself out on your bullshit and finding the true feeling of having enough, Paul encourages all of us to ‘bleed a little bit’. Whether you run a small business, are a company of one or are just tired of the hustle, Paul will remind you why you got started and how to align yourself with what brings you the most joy in your life.

Learn why it’s easier to build an audience when you stand for something, and how to deal with those on the other side of the line saying f*ck you. Question everything around you. But most importantly, believe that you are enough.

“I don’t want to perform in my writing, but the fact that I am sending a piece of writing to so many people and they are consuming it is a performance.” (11:29)

“If you share something as yourself, like with your name and your business, like my business is me. Then it’s a bit more personal right, the praise is a bit better but then the like criticism is a bit harsher. Because they are not disliking your business, they are disliking your business and your business is you.” (16:27)

“I think if there was kind of one path forward then we wouldn’t need to have this conversation because everybody would be on that path because that would be the one path. And I don’t think that’s the way business or life works. It would be so nice if and so easy if that was the case, but unfortunately it’s not.” (29:18)

“I would rather personally fail trying something that I want to do, than trying something that I don’t want to do but want to just get to an end goal for it.” (31:04)

“Growth isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and business ideas around growth and what science and actual stories from business, they kind of tell two different stories. And it’s one of those things where I’m like ‘why is nobody else talking about this’, and then I’m like, I guess I should.’” (46:07)
