Paul Jarvis

Paul Jarvis shows people how to kick ass at the intersection of creativity and commerce.

The hardest-working creative you’ll meet, Paul Jarvis is a designer, author, teacher, software creator and podcaster. He’s written four books (translated into Korean, Russian, Arabic and several other languages he unfortunately doesn’t speak), and builds beautiful-yet-practical digital courses including a class on freelancing and training for MailChimp. Paul also co-founded ofCourseBooks and hosts two podcasts about business, freelancing, creativity – and nerdy stuff like time travel and vampires.

As a trend-buster and business strategist, Paul has collaborated with some awesome people and companies, including Danielle LaPorte, Marie Forleo, Mercedes-Benz, Microsoft, and Warner Music. His work has appeared in Fast Company, Forbes, Newsweek, BuzzFeed, LifeHacker, and his writing reaches over 100,000 people every month.

Never someone to sit on his laurels (what are those “laurels,” anyway?), Paul has also been a touring musician, veterinary assistant, paperboy, and ad agency monkey. He began working for himself full-time in 1998, so he’s pretty much unemployable now – and that’s a really good thing.
