Entrepreneurial journeys make for some of the most compelling stories people can hear about. Whether they are rags-to-riches stories or stories that celebrate the undeniability of business genius, the tales of how the rich and famous became who they are invaluable for the lessons they impart, as well as for keeping budding entrepreneurs’ spirits up when times get rough — as they do from time to time.

But Paul Alex Espinoza’s journey stands apart even in such a diverse crowd as entrepreneurs tend to be. As he writes in his book, From Blue to Digital Gold – The New American Dream, the serial entrepreneur whose latest venture is MerchantAutomation.com has led a very different life to the one he leads now.

“The book talks about my humble beginnings in law enforcement,” Paul Alex explains. “It goes into how I was able to make the switch and take everything that I knew, as far as life experience, and perfect that and apply it to entrepreneurship.”

Few people have transitioned from highly successful law enforcement professionals to serial entrepreneurs the way Paul Alex has. In the book, he shares the steps of a truly transformative journey from a person who wanted to serve people and communities through law enforcement to an entrepreneur who decided to serve others by providing them with business opportunities.

However, today’s business opportunities are not the same ones people gravitated towards just a few decades ago. The digital transformation changed everything, affecting the core of American culture and leading to what Paul Alex dubs the new American Dream.

“You can see the difference between the old American dream of making it while working the nine to five and then the mindset of creating something yourself,” Paul Alex explains. “And the new ‘rich’ isn’t just a millionaire anymore. It’s just freedom. The goal is to build multiple income streams, get rich, own your time, and stay anonymous — I’m not jealous of Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos.”

Most of the skills Paul Alex used to build his new businesses — essential for the new American Dream — are digital marketing, social media, and branding skills. However, his way of doing things stands out because he supplemented them with the skills he learned from his police work.

Paul Alex learned leadership, decision-making, and crisis management on the job and later found ways to use them to achieve his entrepreneurial goals. And while the book isn’t a textbook or a course book, he made sure to think about the people who were left wanting more.

“I have all the information inside the book where you can learn more,” Paul Alex explains. “So if readers want to learn about merchant services, I will point them where to learn about merchant services. If they’re inspired to get into digital marketing, they could get into digital marketing.”

As chronicled in his book, Paul Alex’s entrepreneurial journey is a unique narrative that outlines the new kind of entrepreneur — one that would rather have millions instead of billions if it meant he’d have more personal freedom. His story shows the resilience and adaptability he needed to make those dreams come true for himself and his family, and Paul Alex aims to impart that same spirit to everyone who reads the book.

“I’m not a big reader, but I forced myself to read because I know self-education is everything,” Paul explains. “The strategy behind this book is that I’ve made it short and accessible because I want people to be able to read it. Give them a short read, inspire and motivate them.”
