Paul Jarvis just wrote a book called "Company of One" and sent me a copy.

I read it cover to cover and found it really compelling, so we hosted him on the show. 

Paul talks about a different kind of business philosophy, where more is not always better. 

How do you build a Company of One to fit your lifestyle and goals? Why and how should you resist the envy that comes when you see others constantly growing their business?

This and more in today's episode!

Did Bill Murray really climb through the window of Willie Nelson's chapel during Luck Reunion?

This is the 100th episode of Small Business War Stories, and this is the perfect way to celebrate, with an episode recorded at Willie Nelson's ranch

Matt Bizer, Ellee Fletcher (Willie's grandniece) and I talked about the music business, Willie and his family, how artists make money in the 21st Century, and how Luck Reunion is creating a new kind of music and content company.

We also talk about community and the role that music and podcasts have in bringing people together.

Last but not least, we get all kinds of funny stories about the cool, inspiring, and bizarre things that have happened at Luck Reunion
