No kidding… Paul has consulted with Fortune 100 companies like Cisco, Adobe, IBM, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan/Chase, Mass Mutual, Accenture, and other giant organizations, but his real and true passion is helping small business owners and CEOs double and triple their profits, sometimes growing their companies more than 10-fold. Over the last few years, Paul’s one-on-one small-business clients, who range in size from brand-new startups to companies with around $20 million in sales, have profited by more than $550 million in bankable, put-in-your-pocket cash: the equivalent of billions in extra sales.
Paul has been an entrepreneur since he was 27. After a 3-year stint as a software programmer working in Corporate America, he launched his first company with a partner and just $3,000 of credit card debt, selling it three years later to a publicly traded software company for just under nine million dollars. Five years later, he sold his second company to a large German Bank. He has started several other businesses since, including a successful sales training company and a business coaching franchise… which failed spectacularly.
He has published three books, including the McGraw Hill business best-seller, Be Unreasonable, as well as Faster Than the Speed of Change and Earn Twice as Much with Half the Stress. He’s spoken on stage for such business luminaries as Jay Abraham, Tony Robbins, T. Harv Eker, Marshall Sylver, Brian Tracey, CEOSpace, Joel Roberts, and many others. He’s been featured in the New York Times, The LA Times, the Wall Street Journal, CNN, CNBC, and Good Morning America, as well as hundreds of trade and special interest publications.
Paul’s newest coaching and training programs help entrepreneurs implement high-performance business and life strategies. Sales Voodü is an outbound call-based lead generation program to help companies set up and manage an outbound sales team. Formula 5/XL is a system guaranteed to help business owners 2x-10x their companies by making a series of easy, can’t-fail changes. The Turnkey Your Business program teaches a method to transform any company into a series of duplicatable systems. The Entrepreneur Alchemy Academy, is a cutting-edge group-coaching environment to supercharge everything—business, health, and life—combining proven business scaling strategies with non-traditional magical and spiritual practices.
Paul graduated with a BFA in Fine Arts and later from New York University’s Stern School with an MBA. He’s a member of Mensa, which he says he joined to compensate for not having studied at a prestigious school like Harvard.
Besides his work as a business coach, entrepreneur-educator, and rainmaker, he is an art-photographer, a blues/rock guitarist and bass player, and practices his own brand of Chaos Magic and Mysticism.
