Working With the Right People with Alex Pauls

In this episode, Brad has a one-on-one conversation with Alex Pauls about his marketing business, KP Design. They talk about life transitions from technical sales to becoming a marketing genius and guru. Alex describes what it was like being a power electrician and shares his most memorable and fearful experiences while working at Manitoba Hydro in Canada for 15 years, as well as fitting in with older generations. They talk about mentorship, shaping the next generation of electrical trainees in Winnipeg, and what it’s like to see students succeed. After taking a retirement package, Alex’s passion and desire to work combined with his wife’s talents in web design finally led to the fruition of their marketing SEO world and the dream of working together. Listen to the podcast to hear how Alex found the right work ethic that fit their brand and their promise. Learn the process of finding the right people to work with when you tune in to this episode.

 

Highlights:

04:07 If somebody's going to pay you to leave, you take the money and you leave. And you take your skills and you're grateful. And you move on and you do new amazing things.

06:56 There were a lot of days where I think I was thinking to myself, “The only reason I'm doing this is so that I can tell my grandchildren one day that I did this.”

16:01 I think any good teacher wants to see their students surpass them.

23:51 I think that's the toughest and most time-consuming part. It’s finding and trusting the right people to want to work with.
