Paul Jarvis is on the call today. He talks a lot about this concept of building a minimalist business which really got me thinking. We talk about how this concept relates to profitability and lifestyle, but as well as business and personal growth.

We spend a chunk of time talking about his upcoming book, Company of One. For this one he’s going the traditional publishing route. So I asked him what’s like to find an agent, an editor, a publisher, and how works the hole process, including deal packages.

We also talk about software, infoproducts, growing an audience, and how his newsletter evolved from 12 to thousand of people.
