J. Paul (Jean Paul) is a retired Police Detective and Hostage Negotiator who completed an exemplary 31 year police service career, specializing in several areas of law enforcement and International Peace Keeping.

As a child, J. Paul, his siblings and mother were physically and emotionally abused by his alcoholic father. In school, he became conditioned to believe he was worthless and that he would never amount to anything. He had no confidence and self-prophesized failure. That all changed in grade 7 when he discovered he could change his destiny and made it his mission to turn HIS life around. J. Paul proceeded to get his dream job and fulfill the promise he had made to himself as a boy; to arrest people like his father. Once he became a police officer, J. Paul set the bar even higher for himself and went on to become a subject matter expert as a Hostage Negotiator, Detective, International Peace Keeper, and instructor. The many specialized areas he worked in provided him with first-hand experience on how to help, understand and influence others. He is credited for having saved countless lives and for providing hope and direction to those who had lost it.

J Paul is also the author of "Take Control of Your Life: Rescue Yourself and Live the Life that You Deserve"
