MBA1183 Guest Teacher: Paul Jarvis- Why growth might be the worst thing for your business.

Take it from today’s special guest, Paul Jarvis. One of our first guest teachers ever, Jarvis is a best-selling author and entrepreneur who focuses on profitability and longevity. His deep analysis of startup success rates has revealed a stunning conclusion: that growth is far too valued among independent business people.
