In today’s episode of TBOA, Rochelle and I are joined by guest Paul Jarvis to talk about how staying small is the new big.
Here’s the link to the episode:
“I know what questions you’re going to ask, and I’m going to answer them before you have to email me to ask them.” –PJ
“I’ve killed off software products, courses, podcasts… so many things.” –PJ
“Others are really good at managing; I’m really good at making stuff.” –PJ
“I’d rather hire the top of market people to do what I need done, and I’d rather pay the premium of the top of market, A-list players, because I don’t need to manage those people.” –PJ
