Episode 51: Paul Jarvis on growing your brand intentionally

In today's episode, we talk to writer and designer Paul Jarvis, who has many insightful things about how to grow your brand in an intentional way, and about making the transition from a day job to writing full-time.

In this episode, we talked about

  • how he made that transition himself,
  • how introverted writers can build their brand,
  • what Spiderman can tell you about achieving your dreams,
  • why both lower bounds and upper bounds are important when you're setting goals,
  • the questions he asks himself to know what is enough, and
  • scorpions.

Paul Jarvis is a writer and designer who’s worked with professional athletes like Steve Nash and Shaquille O’Neal, corporate giants like Microsoft and Mercedes-Benz, and entrepreneurs with online empires like Danielle LaPorte and Marie Forleo. Currently he teaches popular online courses, hosts several podcasts and develops small but mighty software solutions.

Paul has just released Company of One: Why Staying Small Is the Next Big Thing in Business, a book we talk about on the podcast, about being intentional in deciding how to grow your brand and business - a concept we apply to the creative life. You can find out more on the book at

Paul also sends out a weekly newsletter, called the Sunday Dispatches, and his website has a lot of archives of his writing, which we recommend checking out.
