My name is Paul Artale and I am a motivational speaker based out of 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 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 breakthrough challenges. 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.

aBout The 2-Year-Old’s Guide to Work-Life Balance.

I was on the track to being a university vice-president when suddenly my 2-year-old son made me realize that my talents and passions lay elsewhere.  The “2-Year-Old’s Guide to Work-Life Balance” tells the story of my transformation journey using simple lessons my son taught me.  The book is a mixture of story and workbook that allows you to reflect and make choices that will bring harmony between your personal and professional life.
