Hi, I’m Adventure PAUL.
I love 4 things: people, business, technology, and travel. I’ve created a life and a career that combine my four passions… a lifestyle that takes me on many great adventures!
Business is an adventure to me! Being an entrepreneur is my passion, hobby, and career all-in-one. I love helping other business owners become more successful.
It humbles me to see what people are saying about me!
SOME OF MY FAVORITE MEMORIES ARE…
1) The time I auditioned for American Idol even though I can’t sing.
2) When I guest starred on the TV Show 1000 Ways To Die
3) When I almost went to jail in a town no-one ever heard of before.
4) The month I lost 20 pounds all from my fat butt.
5) My best-friend’s birthday when I made him an extra special Happy Birthday video.
7) The time I starred in a TV commercial for a novelty gift product called As Seen On TV Hat.
8) When I sat in the audience of the Chelsea Lately Show.
9) First time I ever shot a shotgun when I went skeet shooting with Scott.
HOW I MAKE A LIVING
I am a Superhero who fights for Entrepreneurial Success! When people are in danger, they call Batman or Spider Man to save the day. But when business owners are in trouble, they call me, Adventure PAUL.
My ideal Partner is success driven, open to new ideas, and able to make changes quickly and with no regret. Adventure PAUL Partners are extremely intelligent individuals, exceptional in their field, and understand the value in working with an expert.
This is how to work with me.
MORE ABOUT ME
I believe in what Zig Zigler says, “You can have everything you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”
This philosophy has helped shape my professional and personal lives.
EVEN MORE ABOUT ME
I wear Costa Del Mar sunglasses because polarized lenses are the way to go if you’re an adventurer. Plus I look cooler in photos with sunglasses on.
You can usually find me in cargo pants because extra pockets means business. I have a notebook and Sharpie with me at all times.
I like me. I hope that one day we can have that in common.

THE ADVENTURE PAUL STORY
I was born in Mt. Sinai Hospital in Miami Beach, FL (USA) on December 5, 1984.
Flash forward a few years and I started this website on June 2, 2010 with The Best First Post Ever. AdventurePAUL.com was going to be a live journal.. a chronicle of my travels.
The problem was I didn’t make it very far before I got distracted with a new business venture. Not to mention, it takes money to travel. So when I found a great opportunity in Los Angeles, I jumped on it thinking, “I’ll do this for a while and then get back on the road.” Then more business opportunities came, one after another.
From that point forward there was a constant struggle in my life between Paul Drecksler (the guy who loves business) and Adventure PAUL (the traveler). I tried to satisfy both of these personalities, but no matter which direction I moved in, I felt like a spectator in my own life.
Every time I started working too hard and staying in one place too long, a little part of me died. I missed being on the road adventuring. So I’d take time off and start traveling again, only to find that I cared too much about the success of my businesses and my clients to completely check out. Plus I LOVE being an entrepreneur and helping other people become more successful. Everywhere I traveled, I would meet new people and talk about business anyway. Adventure PAUL couldn’t escape Paul Drecksler and Paul Drecksler couldn’t hide from Adventure PAUL.
After living in Los Angeles for two years, I realized that I had never fully committed to living here at all. I hadn’t accrued any new possessions and the idea of signing a 1-year lease made me want to throw-up. The spirit of adventure was still very much alive and I was doing everything I could to keep myself in a position to be mobile.
After much soul searching and lengthy conversations with patient friends and family members, I still didn’t know what to do. I wanted to be happy, but it was hard to find balance between the things I loved.
My dream has always been to call The World my home. I want to live a mobile lifestyle. Consciously and subconsciously I had spent the last 2 years building my business to operate completely from a laptop and a cell phone. The only thing NOT mobile about the business was ME.
Next I looked back at the Adventure PAUL Blog and realized that half of what I wrote about is related to business and technology. This website had become my outlet for everything that I love, not just traveling. That’s when it hit me. AP and PD aren’t different people… Adventure PAUL is the best of Paul Drecksler. Adventure PAUL is the part of me that I want the world to know.
So here I am. I’ve done it. Right? I’ve created a lifestyle and a career that successfully combine my love of people, business, technology, and travel. Now what?
Well, that’s part of the adventure.
I’m glad you’re part of my life and I look forward to sharing my adventures, my successes, and even my failures with you along the way. We’ve got a lot to learn from each other. And we’re just getting started…
Cheers to Future You!
