Who The Heck Is Paul Hutchings?

Talking about myself is one of my least favorite things to do, but here we are on the ‘about me‘ page of my blog. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ™‚ So… in short.. I’m a dad from Idaho

…who started my first direct sales business (network marketing) a year after I got married over 15 years ago.

I was working in a call center and my wife and I were living in a trailer house.

I struggled for a long time to find success. In fact, I went my entire first year without making a single sale and the next 4 weren’t much better.

Then in 2009, I began to learn about lead generation and digital marketing.

This changed everything for me.

I went from sponsoring 23 people in 2 years to sponsoring over 400 personally in a year.

These new skills helped me to become the #1 rep in my entire company and Iโ€™ve been a top producer in everything Iโ€™ve promoted ever since.

Iโ€™ve served on 2 company leadership councils and even started my own online marketing, lead generation coaching & training company called “The Home Business Academy.”

We started from scratch, building everything from the ground up, and so far we’ve been able to scale to over 5 million dollars in sales.

All of this has helped me to build a life of freedom and prosperity that I’m SOOOO thankful for.

I truly want to do my best to help as many people as I can find more success in business and life.

If you’re in network marketing and are just beginning to think about how you might be able to use online lead generation to attract customers and new distributors, these 7 free videos might be the perfect place to start learning powerful lessons that can help you get quickly up to speed and avoid some common mistakes that lots of people make when they’re just getting started online.

These days, my main passion in in life is still helping people grow a freedom based income so they can disconnect their time from their money, & do more of the things they want to do in life.

I’ve found that the best way to do this is through business models like network marketing or affiliate marketing.

My training can help home business entrepreneurs

  • Increase lead flow
  • Gather more customers
  • Sponsor & recruit more reps & business partners
  • And of course, grow personally via more powerful communication strategies, goal setting, proven sales & marketing techniques coupled with personal growth, motivation and transformation

My vision in business is “Freedom Through Principle Centered Leadership” and this drives me every day to do the best I can to help others learn and follow the same principles that helped me to get where I’m at today.

Outside of business I love to spend time with family and friends, play guitar and read.

I also serve as chairman of our local school board. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’d like to learn more from me to see how I can help you grow your business, a great place to begin is with my 7 Free Video Training series here. This training is geared toward network marketers, but it has some great marketing lessons that any business owner can use to attract more leads and sales.

If you’re serious about growing a freedom based business online and shortcutting your learning process I’d love to invite you to learn more about the company I started to help with this.

Thanks for stopping by and whatever you to, always go for your dreams!


PS: Thanks so much for stopping by to learn a little about me and my story. I really appreciate it and with you much success on your journey forward!

  1. I don’t like you Paul and had to comment on how I really feel.

    Well – I LOVE YOU Paul Hutchings and so very grateful for all you do and especially for the daily Grow Rich Mastermind for the past 11+ years. It has been by Rock and keeps me centered every day that allows me to be strong and have faith rather than fear as I go through my life. Life looks sooo amazing from all I have learned from you, the hosts of the call and the books I have read – just fabulous.

    So Paul thank you and I truly love you very much and can’t wait to see you again on November 11, 2022!!!!

    • ahhh Jessie! I have to tell you, you’re comment shocked me a little, then made me laugh then made my heart smile SO BIG!

      Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the kind words and for all of your SUPPORT and SERVICE and LOVE and HEART and CONTRIBUTIONS that have made it possible to help that grow rich mastermind keep on keeping on!

      So thankful for you and yes, I love you too!

  2. Hi Paul, I am so thankful to God for sending you to be a part of my life as a leader.

    You are a true servant leader.

    I want you to know that, I do appreciate all the hard work you are putting in to help us to understand how to effectively market and build an online business.

    Since I’ve met you, I have grown tremendously, because of your leadership and example.

    You are awesome Paul, keep up the good work.

    Continue to let your light shine.

    Thank you, Paul.

  3. Thanks, Paul for being a good friend and mentor over all these years. I’ve learned a great deal from your words and example about life and business. Keep up the great work.

    • Thank YOU Dee for being such a great friend and supporter to me over all these years. You are one of my FAVORITE people and it make me smile so big to think that we met over 10 years ago and we’re still on the path, together, today. Love ya man!

  4. Hey Paul,

    When I first talked to Amy about HBA in August of 2020 I was in a really dark place. I had just got fired from my job because of COVID and really did not know what I was going to do. I was really lost and unsure of my future. And now almost 21 months later I have come out of the darkness and have seen the bright light of my future and it’s all thanks to you and the amazing HBA community. I thoroughly enjoy getting on all the masterminds each week, and always look forward to learning from your experience and wisdom.

    I am so grateful to you for all you do. I’m not sure if I will ever be able to repay you. But please know that you helped this lost soul to find his way. I am not there yet but you have flashed the light of freedom for me to follow.

    I appreciate you my brother. Can’t wait to meet you in person in November.

    • Craig,

      Wow, thank you so much for taking the time to write that. I LOVE your story and hearing about where you are vs. where you are now brings such JOY to my soul.

      At the end of the day, that’s one of the most important things we do in this type of a business. Help people remember that where they are, isn’t where they have to stay .

      I’m so grateful for YOU too and all you’ve done and continue to do to help us lead in the best way we can.

      I can’t wait to meet you and give you one of the biggest bro hugs EVER!

      Thanks again and love ya man!


  5. Paul is a leader among leaders his honesty and integrity is something that is hard to find in this arena. He teaches and serves his community with a kind heart. Paul inspires us all with his fun family stories, real life scenarios, and with his morning Napoleon Hill study calls. I feel blessed to have met him so many years ago. My life is so much better because of him.

    • ahhhh thank you so much Jona for those beautiful and sincere words. I’m so thankful for you, our friendship and all the support you’ve given me and continue to give me that’s helped me to stay the course and become who I am today.

      My life is so much better because of YOU!

  6. Such an inspiring story and so very grateful for the light that you shine to others while creating a home (The Home Business Academy) for so many online entrepreneurs. That we can pursue our dream (mine is music), utilize the awesome tools available to us and learn various marketing strategies to become a better marketer online and via email. Truly grateful for the gift of YOU. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks so much LT! Appreciate that and so happy we’ve created something that is allowing you to pursue your dream. ‘Life without a dream is like breath without oxygen.’

      Love ya man and thankful, also, for the gift of YOU!

  7. Thank you so much for being one of my biggest lights in the darkness.

    You are one of the most amazing humans I have ever had the privilege of spending time with and learning from.

    Thank you so much for all of the value, the love, and the greatness that you contribute to the world.

    I love you tons,


    • Wow… I really feel like I should say something profound after reading that beautiful comment but I’ll settle with this…

      ‘I’m rubber, you’re glue, everything good you say bounces off me and sticks to YOU!”

      ha ha…

      Seriously though Amy, thank you so much. Those words mean a lot to me and so do you!

      You’ve helped me to grow so much and given me a big reason to keep working to be the leader the people around me, that I love, deserve.

      Thank you, thank you, thank you for Amy Starr Allen!

  8. Hey Paul! I really loved reading your story and what all of this means to you. I have to say, when i first came across you after joining HBA I was a little intimidates. Pictures of you on stage, time and money freedom, and even creating this business with your partner, Mike. But then as I got to know you I realized that you weren’t that intimidating at all and actually such a joy to be around. It’s because of you that I’ve been able to have many firsts in my business (like speaking on stage and accepting an award) and I can’t wait for how our lives will unfold in the future. Love you brother Paul!

    • Thanks Josh! I’m so thankful you took the time to leave me a comment and so happy to hear that I’m not intimidating.. THANK GOODNESS! ha ha..

      You’re one of my favorite people and leaders in the whole world! I see so much greatness in you and It was one of my greatest joys, to have been able to help create a platform for you to share the light that you deserved to share.

      Love you too and I’m so excited about our future together!

  9. Always love reading your story, and I’ve received so much value from you over the years it’s insane!

    You were a HUGE impact on me starting my personal development journey in 2011 and it has helped me eliminate debt, breakthrough income plateaus and ultimately win my freedom in 2013.

    So glad to be in business with you all these years! Keep rocking it!

    • Paul and Mike
      You both are amazing and even more awesome together. Iโ€™m so glad I took the leap deciding to get involved with your Home Business Academy. Thanks for all you do! What a great team!!!

    • The feeling is 100% mutual Mr. Titan of Tech, President of Prosperity, my Freedom Crusading brotha from anotha mutha! ๐Ÿ™‚

      You are one of the greatest blessings in my life and I thank God every day that we found each other all those years ago and formed a friendship.

      I couldn’t do what I do without you and our mastermind alliance is truly something to treasure.

      Thank you, thank you, thank you for Mike Hobbs, his AMAZING heart and his loyalty, commitment, dedication and service to me and so many others!

  10. Anyone who is reading this comment is on this page wondering who is Paul Hutchings? Iโ€™ll give her a few thoughts of my own based on the experiences that Iโ€™ve had with him since I started working with HBA nearly 2 years ago, he is a true #FreedomCrusader who cares about you and wants the best for not only your life but others in the world.

    When Paul speaks he always has something valuable to say. He doesnโ€™t just like the sound of his own voice like some other leaders in the industry.

    On a personal note โค๏ธ Paul thank you so much for helping me to realize the greatest inside me and you really helped me start to take these first steps after our 1×1 conversation in August 2020 ๐Ÿ’ฅ
    I thank you ๐Ÿ™
    I love you ๐Ÿ˜ and
    Iโ€™ll Crusade with you forever ๐Ÿฆธ

  11. Paul,

    I have to tell you that you have had a huge influence on me, my business and my life.

    The tips in your videos is priceless and I always look forward to opening my email and seeing a post from you.

  12. Good Morning Paul,

    I was checking out my Facebook page and ran across your article, which made me continue reading your article. Struggling has always been a problem for me.

    I have dedicated myself to learning as much as possible about this form of digital marketing, taking a closer look at how marketing has evolved in the business world.

    Using this new wealth of knowledge, I successfully joined and found a home with the Home Business Academy while learning that anything is possible. I believe at this time, and I will be able to succeed.

    This is just a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate your connection. Itโ€™s rare to find friends with whom you can share information and people like you who make a difference in this world.

    Letโ€™s keep in touch. Check me out at this site, and I would appreciate some feed

    I look forward to sharing information with you. Connect with me on https://50plusblogging.com/core-values-and-beliefs/:


  13. I have known Paul Hutchings for quite a while now!! I am very privileged to know Paul. After being burned by other programs, a friend of mine told me about Paul and his teachings, let me tell you I though I knew stuff… I knew nothing!! I am so GLAD and grateful to have learned and still learning a lot of advanced business strategies from a group of people who are like minded. What he teaches would have taken me years to learn and I learned them in meer months instead of years on my own. The support he provides is unlike any other in the industry and you can literally take that to the bank. Not only he provides teachings and valuable resources and education but also fills up your pockets. The experience he has in the industry I believe is unmatched. Best of all, the compassion, the moral and ethical standards of this company is just unheard of.

  14. Hey Brother!!! I knew instantly when I came across your YouTube channel and watched your videos, that you were some one I wanted to work with!!! I know deep in my gut that you are going help me succeed and also helping me impact other peoples lives. So am telling you in advance, Thank You ๐Ÿ™.

  15. Paul,

    After all the years of learning how to make money with affiliate marketing. You have inspired me and shown me the BIG picture. You’re always there to answer questions when we need help and I now feel 100% confident I will reach my goals thanks to you and the Freedom Crusaders family!

    Thank you!

  16. Dear Paul. Hi there! I am currently living in Canada and will be moving back to Australia very soon. Is there someone down there who I can gain information and help regarding CTS? Do you have any connections? Cheers – Lori

  17. Paul, after working with you for several months now, I believed you’ve gained a great deal of insights from your experiences and that they have now served you well.
