Company Of One by Paul Jarvis

Company of One

Why Staying Small Is the Next Big Thing for Business

By Paul Jarvis

Buy the book
Company of One focuses on this idea: “small is the new big.” It’s a thought-provoking idea. In our interview, and in the book, Paul makes the case that we as humans naturally gravitate toward growth (e.g., growing bigger in business) just because that’s what we’re “supposed to do,” or that’s what gets rewarded in the media.

Book cover for Primal Branding by Patrick Hanlon with picture of a grey mask

Primal Branding

Create zealots for your brand, your company, and your future

By Patrick Hanlon

Buy the book
Patrick Hanlon delves into human nature to describe why brands outperform others, such as the human need to belong to something, our love for creation stories (e.g., Steve Jobs creating the origins of Apple in his garage), and our fascination with memorable icons (e.g., logo, or even a jingle) like the intro to the Smart Passive Income Podcast (“work hard now, so you can reap the benefits later”). Rituals play an important role, too—something that you have your audience or customers do every single time that becomes a part of your brand. If you are trying to build a successful brand, no matter where your platform is or what your product or service is, you should read Primal Branding.

Rocket Fuel Book

Rocket Fuel

The One Essential Combination That Will Get You More of What You Want from Your Business

By Gino Wickman and Mark C. Winters

Buy the book
Rocket Fuel is mandatory reading for any entrepreneur who has already started their business, over the exciting DIY period, and is maybe beginning to feel a little pain and overwhelm. The essential combination that Gino and Mark are talking about here is that of a Visionary (most of us entrepreneurs), and that of an Integrator (also known as an OBM, and online business manager, or even a project manager).
