Welcome to All Groan Up – a community created by Paul Angone for those asking “what now?”
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 learned that success in your 20s is about consistency, humility, grit, and many other unsexy words that won’t make the Twentysomething Hallmark Collection.
Now for over 10+ years I’ve been researching, writing, and speaking on the biggest issues, opportunities, and challenges facing Millennials, (and the organizations and leaders trying to connect with them).
I’m the author of the All Groan Up: Searching for Self, Faith, and a Freaking Job! (Zondervan), the best-selling book 101 Secrets for Your Twenties (Moody), and I help people uncover their unique Signature Sauce — where your passion, purpose, and career collide.
I am also a national speaker at universities and organizations, frequent contributor for publications such as Business Insider, Huffington Post, and Relevant Magazine, a business consultant with a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership where I help companies and Millennials work better together, and the creator of this website, AllGroanUp.com, which has been read by millions of people in 190 countries.
What All Groan Up is Really About
First, this is a community dedicated to reminding each one of us that we’re not alone.
Second, I strive to consistently dispense truth, hope, and hilarity through every article and video I produce.
Third, 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 your 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.
