Paul Zelizer, Founder and Chief Entrepreneurial Activist

Paul is one of the first business and marketing coaches to focus on the needs of conscious entrepreneurs and social impact businesses.  He also works with leaders to help them increase the transformational impact that they have in their organizations and in the world. His website for this work is PaulZelizer.com.

Paul is the former Director of Social Media for Wisdom 2.0, one of the premier mindfulness brands in the world. In 2017, he founded Awarepreneurs because he kept getting feedback that it was time for a community that leverages the power of the intersection of conscious business, social impact and awareness practices for positive change.

Our Core Values

Social Entrepreneurship

In a modern economy, most adults spend the majority of their working hours working. Doing so in a business that deeply reflects your values has profound ripple effects - it becomes an ongoing force for good. We exist to help midwife and grow more of these kind of businesses.


Self awareness is an essential component to positive social impact and awareness of others is key to lasting cultural change. We encourage our members to pay attention to the ecosystems we operate in and how we show up in these.


We are a dynamic global community of conscious entrepreneurs and social impact leaders. We are committed to learning how to be increasingly inclusive.


People need accurate information for safety and to be good community members. Transparency facilitates informed decisions, strong collaborations and a culture of learning.

Social Justice

The times we live in call for more than just stress reduction and personal development approaches. Inequality has been the status quo for too long. We recognize that any true healing must include attention to diversity, equity and inclusion. We strive to speak out against oppression and look for ways to repair the harm done.

Aliveness & Self-care

We can only sustain business growth to the extent we care for the humans involved. This includes ourselves, clients, contractors, and the people we source our products from. Compassion for self and others is essential to create the culture we aspire to.
