Better With Paul is a newsletter and upcoming podcast for people who value legacy, financial freedom, and culture.

I have spent the last decade talking with peak performers like Oprah, 50 Cent, Katie Couric, and Ted Leonsis. Better With Paul allows me to identify and dissect the business, relationship, and health lessons from the journeys of these innovators, entrepreneurs, creators, and researchers. The podcast will launch on July 1st, 2020!

I write a weekly newsletter called Better where I share lessons learned preparing, interviewing, and observing the world’s top performers. I also include announcements and invitations to special events. Available only through email.
