Thanks for checking out the Awarepreneurs podcast! My name is Paul Zelizer and I am passionate - you could say obsessed - about the intersection of 3 things: a) conscious business, b) social impact and c) awareness practices. I believe these 3 movements are some of the most dynamic and hopeful movements on our beautiful planet at this time.

Around the world. people are discovering how to lead with awareness, have massive positive impact and create businesses that truly are a force for good. Each week, I do a deep dive interview with a thought leader in this intersection. Someone who has an enterprise that is market tested and already transforming many lives. I ask the gritty and sometimes challenging questions - like how they earn their money, how many people they help and what some of their biggest failures are.

Lastly, one unique aspect of the Awarepreneurs conscious business podcast is an opportunity for dynamic community colearning. Every Tuesday, I post a new episode. And, I post an invitation to dialogue - including with the host - in the Awarepreneurs Facebook group. There are thousands of smart, funny and experienced social enterprise leaders in the group. This opportunity for colearning is a unique aspect of Awarepreneurs.

My goal for this show is to help you grow your businesses, enhance your well being and increase your social impact.
