Scaling Up Nation, I cannot wait to introduce you to Paul Edwards. We met in our Mastermind group and have learned a great deal from one another. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, “When you meet new people, you open the door to new ideas and better ways of doing things that you never would have never thought of if you stayed alone in a silo.”
Paul is a first-generation Spanish-speaking immigrant to the US with African heritage and Middle East combat experience. Paul’s lived in five different countries, speaks two languages, and holds three passports.
Paul wears many hats – he is CEO of a ghostwriting and content creation agency, bestselling author, podcast host, and one of the best people I know at networking. And if that wasn’t enough, he is a husband, father, mentor, amateur theologian, men’s physique athlete, voice mimic, and recovering insurance salesman.
Yes, Renaissance Man, Paul Edwards does a lot of things really well, but in today’s episode, he is going to speak into the power of great communication, generous networking, and authentic relationships.
When Paul isn’t writing content for clients, you’re most likely to find him building relationships and creating opportunities for his network.
Bottom line: Paul does two things well: words and people.
