Why do some people live a successful and significant life?
While the rest live full of potential, but with no real purpose?
These are two questions I spent most of my twenties exploring.
I felt lost, frustrated, and worst of all, I felt stuck.
I had big dreams and goals, yet I was dying the slow death of cubicle life. I wanted to run ahead full-speed, yet I had no idea how to take that first step forward.
So for the last ten years I took that frustration on an epic journey of studying, writing, researching, and searching to find the answer to those two GIANT questions.
Now after these wild ten years, I feel like I have the answer to why and how those people live a life full of purpose — they learned how to own, hone, refine, and define (what I call) their Signature Sauce.
Your Signature Sauce is where your passion, purpose, and career collide.
Join us in the fight against living a ho-hum-life.
Let other people do whatever with their lives. Do something significant with yours.
Let's find your Signature Sauce!
Paul is the best-selling author of 101 Secrets For Your Twenties and All Groan Up: Searching For Self, Faith, and a Freaking Job!, a sought-after national keynote speaker for corporations and universities, and the creator of AllGroanUp.com, which has been read by millions of people in 190 countries. In his spare time he also likes to make spoof videos using eggs as props.
In this course you'll learn how to...
Squash the fear and anxiety that's you keeping you stuck in place.
Fear keeps us stuck in a career, job or lifestyle we don't love. Fear of failing, fear of being judged by family or friends, and even the fear of success. This course is designed to help you combat that fear by helping you to develop a plan to move forward. Because everyone has a different route, I've pulled in other people who have been where you are now to help.
Create a roadmap for finding a career you are passionate about living every day
Inside of Signature Sauce I've created a 60 minute career assessment that will help you figure out exactly where you are right now in your work, and the steps you need to take to start doing work that pays you money and doesn't kill your soul.
Uncover the amazing flavor that you bring to this world that no one else can
I named this course "Signature Sauce"-- not because I'm Italian and constantly thinking of food, but because I believe in this idea that we all have something unique to bring into the world. Albert Einstein wrote, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid." I don't want you to live your life trying to fish your way up a tree.
Get clarity, vision, and actionable steps to start creating the life you're meant for
You won't leave this course without a plan that you can start applying as soon as you leave. If you take this course and at the end feel like you don't have a clear idea of what direction you are headed towards, I'll refund your money.

What Signature Sauce students are saying...
“Signature Sauce has been HUGE in my journey to find what I was made to do. The things I have discovered and the knowledge I have gained about myself have been game-changers. Going into the program, I was completely in the dark about what to do with my life. Now, I not only have clear goals and dreams with immediate action steps, but I also have the courage and intentionality to change the trajectory of my life.”
- Luke, 21 years old
-Angie, 49 years old
"As a result from Signature Sauce, I discovered that my passions were in the area of personal development (EI training, personal coaching, or certain branches in HR) and relationship building (team coaching, mediation...). I then used Paul's advice on "relationshipping" and voilà, now I'm exploring this fascinating business of helping people find the job that suits them best at a Talent Management company in Barcelona!"
– Fernando, 31 years old
"On the surface the Signature Sauce program may sound like other courses out there, but it is far superior. The individual ingredients and the order in which they're presented/completed made me think about my life in a different way and I was able to connect the dots between seemingly unrelated topics. Paul communicates clearly and offers concrete, actionable steps when you have no idea where to begin. To top it all off, his enthusiasm is contagious and he offers the support needed to step outside your comfort zone. I can't thank Paul enough for creating this course!"
– Keri, 28 years old
"The Signature Sauce program is one of those things where it brings a step to step process to answer questions that perhaps you never knew you had about yourself. I witnessed many AHA moments throughout the course as Paul's approach helped me break down and guided me towards answering questions about myself that I never knew I had". This clarity has helped me identify things I want to work on for myself and work towards the age-old questions many of us millennial have "What is my purpose in life?"
-Joshua, 22 years old
"I was absolutely mind blown by the ingredients I was able to uncover. During this program I was able to discover an existing mentor (for project management) and gain a new mentor (for marketing) through the section on "relationshipping"! With the help of mentors and this program, I was able to create action steps for the next 6 months. Thank you so much for this program."
- Kathy, 25 years old

Frequently Asked Questions
For a long time now I've been getting emails, asking me the same few questions-- "I just feel stuck. How do I get out of this?" "I have no idea where to go from here, can you help?" "How do I even get started on a path of finding work I love if I'm not even sure where I am?"... These are questions I am constantly fielding in my inbox and at speaking engagements. I created this course as a resource and community so that I can help more people answer some of those difficult questions in a more meaningful and intentional way.
Signature Sauce is a five-week course with two weekly lessons. You can binge through the entire course like a caffeine-rushed, Netflix-addicted college student-- or, you could spend a couple hours per week working through the lessons. Each lesson will include a video teaching from me, written takeaways, a guided implementation video series where I walk through each lesson, and workbook questions to help you hone your Signature Sauce. Once you join the course, you have lifetime access, so you're welcome to access the content on any day, at any time, as often as you'd like.
