This week I sit down with my guest Paul Brunson (@paulcbrunson)!

A few months ago we connected over Instagram and just by chance, the opportunity to meet face-to-face for this interview came up. He was going to be in Jamaica for a few days working with the Government. His schedule was insane and at the moment when it seemed like it wasn’t going to happen. It all came together. Literally, in the middle of the night, the day before he would be flying out, we both hustled and pulled it together.

Paul is a TV host, a matchmaker, an entrepreneur and a board member of BAU, which you’ll learn more about in this episode. In this episode you’ll learn about:

  • The quality that makes true entrepreneurs confidently face any risk, even financial security of your family
  • How to build a vast business empire from starting with following only one path
  • The invaluable lessons from billionaires you can implement today
  • And so much more!

In the time we spent before the interview, I could tell that the person we see on TV and on social media, is the exact warm and caring person face-to-face. How many people can we say that about? I think that’s something for us all to aspire to. Let us be our true selves, our true, best selves, in every situation and you know what, you’ll draw the right people to you, and repel the wrong people.

One point I have to make is, the audio is not perfect. We recorded it in the middle of the night, about close to 10pm. To paint the scene, we’re sitting in the lobby of the hotel Paul was staying at. There are people coming in and out, going up and down the elevators and cleaning crews going back and forth. So you’re going to hear a little noise in the background, but you know what, not to worry, you’ll be able to hear 100% of the conversation properly.
