My name is Paul Artale and I am work-life and motivational speaker based out of Swartz Creek, Michigan.

As a keynote presenter, I speak for organizations that want to light a fire in people on how to perform at their peak and create a healthy balance between work and home.  As a career coach, I work one on one with people who want to discover what makes them tick and live a life worth living.

In fact I wrote the book, The 2-Year Old’s Guide to Work-Life Balance.  Presentation attendees share they are more focused on what matters, inspired to reach for more, and implement ideas that are practical and immediately accessible.

On a personal note, I played defensive end for the University of Toronto and off the platform my coaches include my wife Sherri, my son Alessio, and my daughter Sofia.

My Football Journey


Despite being born with a physical challenge, I overcame adversity to play defensive end for the University of Toronto Varsity Blues.  My playing career quickly turned into a college coaching career that took me across North America as I lived my dream.

My signature keynote Hit Hard: 3 Must Have Mindsets to (re)design Your Life. has been delivered to thousands of attendees.  I use my life in football as a way of teaching others to build resilience, persist to their goals, and live a fulfilling life.
