After falling into freelance life accidentally in the late nineties, Paul Jarvis has helped to shape the way many freelancers work.

He started out designing websites for professional athletes, working from his parent’s basement on a self-built computer. And now, 20 years later, Paul is a writer and published author who helps entrepreneurs build businesses that are better, not bigger.

Through his weekly email series, the Sunday Dispatches, multiple podcasts and online courses, and now his book, Company of One: Why Staying Small is the Next Big Thing for Business, Paul teaches freelancers to make up their own rules when it comes to how they want their businesses to look.

In this episode though it’s finally time to hear his story. How did his business look? How did he get to where he is today: happy to be a company of one?
