Welcome to All Groan Up – a community for those asking “what now?“
My name is Paul Angone and I’m the author of the new book All Groan Up: Searching for Self, Faith, and a Freaking Job! (Zondervan), the best-selling book 101 Secrets for Your Twenties (Moody), a national speaker, and the creator of AllGroanUp.com, which has been read by millions of people in 190 countries.
But my life wasn’t always this rosy. For most of my twenties I felt like such a failure. I wanted my life to really mean something, yet I felt lost, frustrated, and crushed under the heavy weight of all the unknowns.
Through this struggle, I became extremely passionate about empowering college students, twentysomethings, and thirtysomethings with overwhelming amounts of truth, hope, and hilarity as we save ourselves from a ho-hum “groan up” life.
I learned that failure doesn’t ruin your story. Failure helps you write it.
I’ve now been writing and researching for ten years about the unique challenges facing the Millennial Generation and how we overcome, and I can’t wait to be a resource, guide, and voice of encouragement and insight for you.
I believe you are made to live your life dripping with intentionality, purpose, significance, and meaning.
I believe you have your own unique Signature Sauce — giving the world a flavor it’s desperate for that no one else can offer.
This Groan-Up life isn’t simple or straight-forward and we need a safe, real, hilarious space to talk about it.
And possibly the encouragement to light our Groan Up pants on fire!
If you’re struggling with the questions “what now, what next, and what do I do with my life?” then cozy up my friend, you’ve found your new home.
