Personal Branding Journey: From Nearly Failing Highschool to Successful Entrepreneur

When we met up with Paul Carrick Brunson in his stylish flat in London, he embodied the poster boy for success: handsome millionaire with a gorgeous wife and two adorable sons, friend of Oprah with multiple profitable businesses and projects in the works.

While he may look perfect enough to be annoying, the truth is Paul has earned every bit of his success—and it hasn't always been easy. Growing up with a proud immigrant mother from Jamaica, Paul almost flunked out of high school. With the support of his parents, he turned his life around and graduated college starting his career as a lowly non-paid intern in investment banking, fetching coffees and running errands. But he worked his way up the industry and was soon making bank, with a Rolex and BMW to boot.Even with these external signals of success, Paul still had a stomachache every Sunday night as he dreaded another grueling work week in this cutthroat industry. Trusting his gut, he quit his coveted gig and over the next decade launched, failed, and led several companies, until again his intuition whispered there was a better way.

Through his professional and non-profit work Paul helped to mentor youth in the DC area and was surprised to find out many of the kids didn’t live with two parents and sometimes no parents at all—instead being raised by grandma’s, aunties, and extended family. Discussing this with his then new wife, he joked they should be matchmakers! It was said in jest but after doing research Paul found there were virtually no men, few young people, and nearly no Black matchmakers in the industry. Seeing a MAJOR gap in the market, Paul resigned from his steady job again, and went full throttle into the matchmaking business.

Fast forward and Paul’s vision has PAID OFF. He is a bestselling author, runs a multi-million-dollar empire, and has hosted TV shows on Oprah’s network and channels across the globe. And best of all? The young kid who almost failed out of high school, is the co-founder of one of the largest private universities in Washington, D.C.
