A refreshing approach to entrepreneurship centered on staying small and avoiding growth - maximizing happiness, sustainability and profitability.
Paul Jarvis left the corporate world when he realized that working in a high-pressure, high-profile world was not his idea of success. Instead, he now works for himself out of his home, and lives a much more rewarding and productive life. He no longer has to contend with an environment that constantly demands more productivity, more output and more growth.
In Company of One, Jarvis explains how you can do the same, including:
· Planning to set up · Determining desired revenues · Keeping clients happy · And, of course, doing all this on your own.
