Paul Zelizer, Founder and Chief Entrepreneurial Activist


Paul Zelizer is one of the first business and marketing coaches to focus on the needs of conscious entrepreneurs and businesses. Paul runs a global coaching practice helping them grow their businesses to the next level while staying true to their deepest integrity. He also works with leaders to help them increase the transformational impact that they have in their organizations and in the world.

Paul is the former Director of Social Media for Wisdom 2.0, one of the premier mindfulness brands in the world. In 2013, he left Wisdom 2.0 because he saw the need to gather a tribe that's more focused on social enterprise and social justice.  Honestly, he agreed with the feedback he kept hearing, "Most of the conscious business brands out there are too much about privilege and feel too corporate for me." Today he is the Founder and Chief Entrepreneurial Activist of Awarepreneurs.

In addition to activism and social enterprise, Paul is passionate about just about anything you can do in the mountain high country, power yoga, dark chocolate, community building, and ecstatic poetry. He lives in diverse neighborhood in Santa Fe, New Mexico and was a founding member of a meditation circle that meets 100 yards from his front door. Learn more about Paul’s coaching work.
