You want to succeed and I want to help you! There is really no other reason to be here.
I won’t help you with your website design, marketing strategy, blog building, social media obsession, or give you a green thumb. But I will help you develop yourself and the people around you so that you will achieve the next level of success in your life—I call this “Next Level Success™.”
My focus is on your personal, team, and leadership growth and development so that you can achieve the success you desire and deserve. I do this by providing tools and strategies—via G Strategies™ & Human Optimization™—to help you be the best that you can be.
“He presents steps and guidance to be ultimately successful.”
Jackie Goode – Meeting Planner, Marketing Coordinator
Your success—and the success of your people, teams and organization—is the primary focus of everything I do as a Motivational Speaker, Success Life Coach, Speaking and Presentation Coach, Leadership Facilitator, and as a Writer.
25+ Years of Speaking & Coaching Experience
120+ Presentations Yearly | Unique Groups of All Sizes
Why should you care? Because you are the only real “key” to your success, and your people are your greatest asset on the journey to success. This means that you, and your people and teams if you have them, must be the primary focus on your success journey.
I believe that success starts and ends with people. Every success is conceived, initiated, and achieved by people. When you develop people you are developing your most valuable assets and you are laying the foundation for success.
Growth is the foundation on which success is built. When “you” grow “you” succeed, when your people grow the organization succeeds. It’s really not that complicated.
What do I do? I help people to succeed! I do this as a…
- Professional Motivation Keynote Speaker (I know…a mouthful for Google’s benefit)
- Success Life Coach
- Speaking & Presentation Coach
- Author & Writer
I inspire and empower people to turn their dream into their destiny, to reach their ultimate potential, to be all they can be, to achieve the success that they desire and deserve, and to enhance their sense of personal peace or well-being. Take a positive and power step on your success journey and stay around a while. It would be a privilege to be part of your success journey.
Now let’s talk about you…
I Know You—You Want Success & Happiness!
You and I have never met, and yet I know we have at least one thing in common. You and I both want to succeed, and we want to succeed while living a happy and fulfilled life.
I know this about you because I know people, and quite frankly this is what we all want. I have never found an exception.
This desire for success and happiness is universal. It is the guiding force in our lives, and yet few people give it the attention it deserves.
That’s where I come into the picture…
Success Requires Intentional Focus
Your growth is the foundation on which your success is built. Understand this truth and you will succeed, ignore it and you will perish. When it comes to success you grow or you die. There is no third option.
Benjamin Franklin said it well,
“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” (Benjamin Franklin)
Success requires intentional focus on yourself. This means that if you want to succeed you have to be intentional about establishing and maintaining personal growth and success strategies.
I’m here to help you be more intentional with your personal, team, and leadership growth and development by providing growth and success strategies, as well as ongoing encouragement.
Be intentional about your growth and success. Connect for Success on my social media sights, and sign up for the G Strategies Toolkit (it’s more than a boring newsletter).

Gerald Paul – aka “G”
When you implement a strategy for personal, team, and organizational growth you are laying the foundation for success. Nothing will stop you from achieving your desired goals.
This site is one way for me to build a working relationship with leaders, businesses, corporations, and associations who would like a speaker, trainer, or success coach who will equip and enable them to achieve greater levels of success, and deeper levels of peace or well-being.
I hope you will connect with me for success on social media sights, and I also encourage you to sign up for the G Strategies Toolkit (it’s more than a boring newsletter).
Now that you are definitely in the right place I should probably tell you a little about myself…
Are Bio’s a Necessary Evil?
Maybe it’s just me but I dislike (dare I say “hate”) autobiographies and speaking introductions. They force you (me)to act—or talk— like you are the king of some kingdom so that people believe you are worthy of their time.
I mean really, what can I say about myself that will convince you that I have extraordinary competence while evoking deep trust in my skill and integrity? And would you believe me anyway?
Like you, I’ve listened to far too many flowering speaking introductions, only to find the speaker had little to say and didn’t say it very well. So I know exactly what you are thinking. I’ve thought the same thing more than once. So I might as well be transparent.
The truth is I’m no king of anything. I’m just a nice guy who knows people, knows success and leadership, and knows how to communicate well.
I’m not a rocket scientist, I’m a success scientist.
Don’t take my word for it. Connect for Success with me on social media sites, Sign up for the G Strategies Toolkit (it’s more than a newsletter), and stay around a while to see, through personal experience and not just my words, how I can help you succeed.
Who Is This “G” Guy Anyway?
You’ve probably figure out by now that my name is Gerald Paul. But like all my friends you can call me “G”.
I’m that incredibly bald guy in the pics! I’d like to say “incredible” bald guy, but that’s open to interpretation, and you will have to decide for yourself.
As I said above I’m no king of anything. I’m just an all around good, genuine and likable guy. Really I am!
I know what makes people tick, I know leadership, I know how to help people get out of their safety box and achieve the next level of success! And I know how to communicate it well.
I can guide, equip and encourage you to turn your dreams into your destiny.
If you want to know more:
- I’m a guy, I’m a son, I’m a father.
- I have fears to conquer, disappointments to address, challenges to overcome.
- I have a Bachelor and Masters degree in my field, I believe in continuing education, I’ve read hundreds of books, and attended more seminars and conferences than I care count (not all of them worthwhile).
- I like to speak and write, and I am a really good communicator (how is that for tooting my own horn…ugghh).
- I have the ability to evaluate people and circumstances, to help you establish a vision and direction, to provide a means to achieve your goal, and to empower you to move toward your vision and destiny.
- I can cut through the B.S. and see what is really going on, what needs to be done, and to help people stay focused on achieving a desired goal.
- I have an unquenchable passion to communicate transformational truths, to teach you growth and success strategies, to help you achieve success and enhance your experience of peace or well-being.
I don’t know how to say this without sounding disingenuous, but I want to help you succeed. I really do. It’s what fuels my passion and purpose in life.
Life is too short “not” to focus on what is important, so lets focus on what’s important together. Let’s focus on you.
Your Important! Your contribution to the world matters. And I want to help you make the greatest contribution possible.
We All Make A Unique Contribution to the World & Here’s Mine
We all have a unique role to play in making this world a better place to live, work, and play.
You have a unique set of skills, talents, and character traits that—when developed—will contribute to your success and happiness. I know that I could learn a lot from you and your area of expertise. In fact, you are probably more skilled than I am in many areas. And that’s the way it should be.
My job is to help you grow and develop so that you will get the most out of your uniqueness.
Gerald Paul – aka “G”
It just happens that I know people, I know leadership, I know growth and development strategies, I know how to communicate and I know how to help others communicate. I know how to help you achieve the success and happiness you desire and deserve. That doesn’t make me any better or worse than you, it just makes me different that you.
I make my contribution to the world as a Motivational Keynote Speaker, Success Life Coach, Speaking or Presentation Coach, and Writer.
A Few Biographical Snippets:
- I have been speaking, leading teams, and coaching for over 25 years—though I hate to date myself.
- I speak 120 plus times a year with a focus on various leadership, team, relationship, growth, development, and life transformation topics.
- I have led several large organizations.
- I have led large organizations through transformational change.
- I participated in an international leadership study focusing on leading an organization through change.
- I’ve worked with hundreds of teams and coached countless individuals.
- I have helped numerous people with various backgrounds develop their speaking and presentations skills.
Whew! So glad that’s done (and that’s why I hate bio’s).
Now let’s get back to talking about you…
What’s In It For You?
What’s in it for you? What can I do for you? How can I help you achieve the success that you desire and deserve? These really are the most important question for you—they are the only ones that matter—and I’m glad you asked.
Gerald Paul – aka “G”
I have dedicated my life to helping people be the best that they can be. My greatest joy comes from watching people exceed their self imposed limitations, or the limitations imposed on them by others.
You have so much to offer this world. I want to help you optimize yourself so that you can have a positive and significant impact on your friends, co-workers, business partners, associates, teams, community, and the world you live in.
My goal is to inspire and empower people like you to turn their dreams into their destiny. I want you to succeed and find happiness, and I can help you get there.
I’m here to be your personal success life coach, and to provide for your speaking needs. You will find only the best growth and success strategies here at www.geraldpaul.com
I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to meet you in person, and to speak to you and your organization.
Invest In Your Success…Invest In Your Future…Invest In Yourself
Who—or even “what”—is more important than you are? The truth is that no one is more important to you than you are. And yet so few people really act like this is true.
The average person spends hundred of dollars a year on coffee, thousands on entertainment, some spend big bucks on personal fitness, but relatively few people spend anything to ensure their personal success. This has always been an enigma to me. James Allen said it well:
“Men [and women] are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound.” (James Allen)
People will invest in their future, their businesses, the stock market, but very few people invest in themselves to ensure personal success. We are remarkably short sighted when it comes to personal growth and personal development. We sacrifice for many things but only rarely for our own personal growth.
The sad result is that few people succeed, or achieve a fraction of what they envision or imagine their life to be.
You can make no greater investment than to invest in yourself and your people—people are, after all, your most valuable assets.
Invest in yourself! Invest in your success! Invest in your future! Invest in your People!
My Commitment To You
I will always give you my best! I will never phone in a talk. I am 100% committed to helping you achieve success and find happiness.
Your life and livelihood are of ultimate value and importance to you, and you deserve to work with someone who wants you to succeed.
I want you to know that I am interested in who you are, what you do, and what you want to achieve in life. I genuinely desire to put you and your needs first.
“I felt confident in choosing Gerald as our speaker. I like how down-to-earth and real he is. From the beginning, he sincerely wanted to know about our company, what we do, who our clients are and what we expected out of the presentation.”
Jackie Goode – Meeting Planner, Marketing Coordinator
My unconditional commitment:
- Inspired Speaking: I will never phone in a talk. I believe every speaking opportunity is a privilege, and an opportunity to change lives, inspire passion, maximize motivation, and reveal a roadmap to success.
- Absolute Value: I am completely committed to adding value to you, your teams, and your organization.
- My Priority: You Matter! Achieving your objectives and meeting your needs is my highest priority. It will always be about you.
- My Values: integrity, honesty, professionalism, and a passion to help you succeed.
- Exceptional Quality: I will provide only the highest quality content. Your time is important and so is mine. Life is too short and success is too difficult to waste time on fluff, bad advice, or inadequate tools and strategies. You will always get my best.
This (and much more) is my unconditional commitment to you. I will do whatever it takes to make it happen.
Now, let’s break “G” down…
G the Speaker
I am a Professional Motivational Keynote Speaker. I know that is a—for Google’s benefit—but the different terms all communicate one thing. I get in front of people and talk. I have been speaking to groups of all sizes for over 25 years averaging well over 120 talks a year.
My goal is to inspire and empower people to turn their dreams into their destiny.
“I highly recommend G to anyone looking for an energetic, motivational, and knowledgeable speaker.” (Rosemarie Belziuk – Coastal Pacific Xpress Inc)
My passion and life purpose is to help you take your success to the next level. I want to help you, your teams, and your organization, to grow and increase in leadership abilities.
I’m not a speaker because I have some inner need to be recognized, or to stroke my ego, but because I have a passion to communicate success and growth strategies.
I’m available to help your teams, businesses, organizations, and associations to achieve their greatest potential by optimizing their greatest assets…people; thus paving the way for success.
It’s not about me, it’s about you. You want to succeed and I want to help you!
G the Speaking & Presentation Coach
What is your greatest fear? If you are like the vast majority of people your greatest fear is public speaking.
This raises a significant problem for most people. The most important opportunities of your life often center around an important presentation. Your ability to speak to people, or in front of people, can be the very thing that propels you forward. Speaking well, or making that crucial presentation, is often the difference between success and failure, advancement or status quo, excellence or mediocrity.
Successful people in every field have recognized the need to develop their presentation skills. It is the one constant factor in propelling people toward ultimate success.
It’s very simple. If you don’t learn to speak well you will limit your opportunities, stifle your potential, minimize your effectiveness, and ultimately sacrifice your success.
I can help you (or your teams) develop your speaking and presentation skills, prepare for that important talk, or develop that crucial presentation so that you will achieve the results you desire.
Speak well for success! Improve the one skill that can change your life and contribute most to your success.
G the Success Life Coach
“Success Coaching” can change your life, and dramatically increase your success quotient! Very little will benefit you more deeply or more quickly than having a success life coach.
All successful people understand the need to have a coach. This is one reason they are so successful.
How would you like to reach your ultimate potential and enjoy the success that comes with it? The answer seems obvious and yet the vast majority of people will never do what is necessary to truly succeed. They dream about it and wish for it, but they never achieve it because they will never take the steps necessary to achieve success.
Winners do whatever it takes to become the best, and to stay at the top of their game. The fact that you are here tells me that you are a winner, or at the very least that you are seriously considering becoming a winner.
Take a crucial step in your success journey and find someone who will guide, consult, motivate, advise, and encourage you along the way.
It’s your life. Only you can live it. Only you can improve it. Only you can take the steps to achieve greatness. But a coach can dramatically increase your potential and effectiveness making success a very real possibility.
I would be honored to play a role in helping you achieve the success you desire and deserve.
G the Leadership Facilitator
A leadership facilitator can help guide your team or organization through change management, conflict resolution, critical issues, leadership development, or any number of growth and development issues.
There are many reasons you would consider hiring a facilitator:
- Your teams are not functioning well together.
- Your organisation is collapsing under conflict.
- Managers are not leading their people well and people are getting fed up.
- Board meetings are riddled with conflict rather than momentum, innovation, and action.
- A change of some kind is necessary for survival or expansion.
- You need guidance in a crucial meeting, conflict, or leadership endeavor.
I want to help you Increase individual, team, and organizational potential, productivity, and performance creating more success, less stress, and increasing profits.

Next Level Success™
The world is full of people who want to succeed. The sad reality is that very few of these people will actually do what is necessary to succeed. Success, however, is achievable by anyone who will work hard, persevere, and embrace foundational success principles. One key principle I teach here is what I call “Next Level Success™”.
“Next Level Success™” is one degree, or one level, of achievement above the success you have presently achieved or currently enjoy. Continually strive for that next level of success and you will always move forward toward your destiny and your dream.
