Paul Lehman

Paul Lehman lives in Utah, and he describes how he got out west as almost an accident. He was born in New York City and raised on the Upper West Side, and for much of his life he expected he would stay and work on Wall Street.

Paul and his wife have had plenty of ups and downs creating several successful businesses, but they have never stopped taking risks. 

As Paul reflects on one of his ventures, “To be successful in any business, you need three things: luck, skill, and timing. If you only have one of them, you’re never going to make it. If you have two of them and you work really hard, you’ll do okay. When you have all three, you’re going to think you’re a genius. I had all three in that deal.”

Paul is living the life he has chosen, not the one that seemed predestined for him in New York. He cares about adventure, his family, and finding his own path. Living this way has left him with no regrets about the huge and unconventional risks he’s taken.
