Meet Paul

A Personal Note from Paul

Nice to meet you!

Perhaps you’re on a mission, like I am.

Inspired by my late father (my hero) that I lost at 19 years old, I’m on a mission of impact, to leave people and places better than I found them.

I see every day as an opportunity to breathe life into others, something that’s never been more needed in the world than it is today.

After a career in the high-stakes world of executive sports leadership, I’ve found my true calling as a speaker, writer, and inspirer of those who want to find the confidence to play offense in their lives and careers.

I can’t wait to get to know you and your team.

See you at the 50!

About Paul

Paul Epstein is a former high-level executive for multiple NFL and NBA teams, and a 2x bestselling author of The Power of Playing Offense and Better Decisions Faster. In 2022, he was named one of SUCCESS magazine’s top-thought leaders that get results — alongside names like Tony Robbins, Brené Brown, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Mel Robbins. His work has been featured on ESPN, NBC, Fox Business, and in USA Today.

Today, Paul is on a mission to help individuals and organizations make better decisions faster. As the leading speaker on confidence in decision-making, he brings an always-on-offense mindset to a world that’s increasingly playing defense.

It’s his message and game-changing perspective on-stage that’s made Paul an award-winning keynote speaker, with his impact continuing off-stage providing leadership development and culture transformation programs for companies and teams including Amazon, Disney, Johnson & Johnson, the LA Lakers, and the Dallas Cowboys.

Beyond work, Paul cherishes time with his family (a tribe of 4), and has a slight obsession with bacon—just don’t make it too crispy.
