Paul Jarvis is a writer, podcast host, author of multiple best-selling books, creator of online courses that have made hundreds of thousands of dollars and a master of empowering people to kick themselves in the butt to harness their creativity.
Paul calls himself a freelancer evangelist. In the 1990's he launched a freelance web design business that has survived several economic downturns.

Over time Paul was hungry for more creative work, defining his professional time on his own terms. He started writing and grew an audience of readers. Outside of publishing best-selling books like "Everything I Know," and "Write and Sell Your Damn Book," Paul publishes a weekly email to his email list about creativity.
His writing reaches over 100,000 people every month and now he teaches creative freelancers how to run their businesses better through Creative Class—with over 1,600 students, increasing daily.
He also has pet rats, tons of tattoos and lives in a remote island in Canada. This was a fun conversation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
