Two years ago Dawn Barton was a top ten sales director for one of the world’s biggest direct sales brands. Her picture was on a billboard in Times Square and her team was closing in what would prove to be over a million in sales for the year – placing them among only a handful of women in company history to achieve that milestone.

Her extraordinary journey has also made her a self-proclaimed Joyologist.

Join us in this episode for the conclusion of my discussion with the amazing Paul C. Brunson, as we dive into everything from Oprah to family.   Paul Carrick Brunson is a serial entrepreneur, television host, speaker, and author whose specialty lies in teaching others how to live and lead authentically. An internationally recognized expert in interpersonal relationships, personal development, and entrepreneurship, he currently serves as a featured business columnist for USA Today and co-host of UK’s Celebs Go Dating television show.   Major media outlets such as Good Morning America, the Oprah Winfrey Network, The Today Show, Nightline, and Black Enterprise have sought Paul’s insights on everything from finding love to pursuing your passion. Named as a Top Voice on LinkedIn and one of the world’s most influential matchmakers, Oprah said herself that, “Paul is much more than a matchmaker.”   The heart of his work is centered on impacting lives through mentorship and developing a new generation of servant-leaders with a desire to change the world. Paul is the founder and chair of “Give Love, Build Hope” – a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming schools in rural areas of the Caribbean. A proud son of his native Jamaica, Paul’s greatest achievements are in his roles of husband and father. When he’s not serving the world, he’s serving his family – likely with a Red Stripe beer in one hand and a good book in the other.   In this episode, Paul and I are sharing: How a small time YouTube series led to a job co-hosting on TV with Oprah and ultimately a super successful matchmaking company The lessons he learned from other uber successful people that he has embodied into his own life How doing pro bono work when starting your business can actually pay off for you His family priorities and how he and his family are living life unconventionally as well The things that have allowed Paul and his wife to build and run multiple successful businesses and still have tons of time for quality time with their kids His ‘secret sauce” to relationships Paul’s tips for how to get started and rock your own entrepreneurial journey His podcast playlist And so much more!

I love to talk to people who have chosen to go all-in on their lives and businesses and especially those who decided to do it unconventionally. Paul C. Brunson is a fantastic example of that, and in today’s episode — the first of a two part series — we are talking all about his journey from college flunkie to celebrity.   Paul Carrick Brunson is a serial entrepreneur, television host, speaker, and author whose specialty lies in teaching others how to live and lead authentically.
