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 living 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 not about them going as planned. But how you adapt, change, and grow when they don’t. 

Thriving in Transition - Paul Angone

Now for over 13+ 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 new book 101 Questions You Need to Ask in Your Twenties (Moody Publishers)All Groan Up (Zondervan), and the best-selling book 101 Secrets for Your Twenties (Moody). 

It’s been a wild year as Target picked up my books as well, which has been an amazing opportunity to connect with more readers. Here’s me below is quasi-shock to see my book in Target!

101 Secrets For Your Twenties in Target!


I’m really excited about my new book because to find important life answers in our 20s, we need to start with good questions.

101 Questions is written in the same easy-to-read style and humor as my best-selling book 101 Secrets For Your Twenties, but this time we’re digging even deeper, culminating years of research into the questions everything twentysomething and thirtysomething needs to be asking.

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!

You see — we’re all struggling. Yet, we’re all struggling to make it appear like we’re not struggling. 

Not anymore.

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.

This video helps sum it up.
