Paul Jarvis helps people learn how to build better (not bigger) businesses.
Hi, I’m Paul Jarvis. I’m an author, designer, podcaster, online course teacher and software creator in
real life on the internet. I have more tattoos than you, and you’ll probably never meet me in person. My goal is to help folks build better, not bigger, businesses.
Paul Jarvis is a designer who likes writing (or vice versa) and has worked for himself since the 90s. He wrote a book called Company of One™ (Jan 15, 2019 release), which is being published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
His courses—Creative Class and Chimp Essentials—have been taken by more than 13,564 paying students. His writing has been talked about by everyone from Ashton Kutcher to Arianna Huffington. He’s worked with clients, such as Microsoft, Danielle LaPorte, Mercedes-Benz, Marie Forleo and Warner Music. His ideas and words have been featured in WIRED, Fast Company, Vice, USA Today and more. As a totally random aside, his photography has been seen on Greys Anatomy (the TV show).
Paul sends out a weekly newsletter, called the Sunday Dispatches (it’s good, he pinky swears). Here’s his contact page (which includes zero contact information, sorry).
