 2 Core Development Paths to choose from:


Continued development of a leadership mindset is essential to all aspects of life and at every level of an organization.

Spend time with other like-minded individuals who strive to enhance the necessary traits to be a successful leader. 

Cultivate your skills to become a more impactful leader and pilot your organization to new levels of performance and purpose.


We live in a financially illiterate country that has historically done a poor job of teaching the core competencies that help
individuals thrive in the business world.

Network with other peers to focus on areas that impact growth.

These sessions will immerse you in topics related to business and financial literacy. Become the team of star players required to compete in the greatest game played – business.

Paul Epstein has been in the sports industry since his career began, serving in the NFL league office leading a national sales campaign for Super Bowl XLVIII…

From an entry-level sales position with the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers franchise, Paul worked his way through the ranks on the power of his passion and willingness to follow his guiding purpose: to make an impact. He eventually became the Clippers’ sales manager, helping them rise from 28th in league revenue to 2nd before moving to a position in New Orleans to help the city save their floundering NBA team— then in danger of being relocated.

Paul then followed his purpose to the NFL— serving in the league office, leading a record-setting Super Bowl XLVIII national sales effort, and overseeing a $1 billion campaign for the 49ers while opening Levi’s Stadium.

To achieve these professional transformations, personal transformation was first needed…

Inspired in part by the message Paul’s late father left with him, that every day is an opportunity to impact lives for the better, Paul went on to take his biggest leap of faith yet.

Paul left the boardrooms of major sports leagues to begin sharing his message of purpose, activating your WHY, and Playing Offense in life and work around the globe. He became an in-demand speaker and thought leader, authored the critically lauded The Power of Playing Offense, led a leadership development lab for a $3 billion organization, and continued to hone his process for putting purpose into daily action.

Today, Paul continues to share his message in keynote talks, books, his Playmakers podcast, a successful coaching practice, and as Chief Impact Officer for Purpose Point as well as Chief Purpose Advisor for the WHY Institute.

All of this momentum led to Paul being awarded by Success Magazine as a Top Thought Leader that Gets Results in 2022.
