059 : Paul Jarvis : Web Designer & Author

Paul Jarvis Post

After college Paul (@pjrvs) worked up the ranks at a web design agency and hit a wall – he wanted out.

Based in Vancouver Island Canada, Paul now works on his own terms with his own web design business and on top of that makes the time to write and self publish books based on what he loves which happen to sell thousands of copies.

At the time of our interview a few months ago Paul had released his 3rd book, Everything I Know about the entrepreneurial life. This June he’ll be releasing his latest book, The Good Creative where he shares “the 18 habits of the world’s most respected artists.”

On this Skype interview you’ll hear Paul discuss his path to creating a business he loves – which involved creating one he hated – the power of saying no, and that what lies outside your comfort zone is what you want.

“I just want to be valuable.” – Paul Jarvis
