Defy the status quo

You may wonder why “Paradox”,

That’s a great a question and you may guess by yourself reading until the end,
But we you’ll give you the answer
To give you a glimpse it’s a lot more than just a cool name

Paradox aims to make education, psychology and coaching
as attractive as watching Netflix or going to Tomorrowland

through mobile apps, e-learning, events and a strong presence on social networks.

We deliver inspiring and educational storytelling and experiences
to our audience of smart, curious, ambitious people.

We believe that many people don’t have the life they could have.
Often due to a lack of strategies or the tendency to conform to the social norm.

But first let’s talk about YOU

You strive for excellence ?

But you are also Friendly and a critical thinker ? Let’s talk.

We don’t want your “best” day to be Friday

Wake up each morning with meaning

Paradox is built around 1 belief

That we are greater than what we think
That we deserve to have an amazing life

Our mission

Help the ambitious defy the status quo
And live the life that truly inspire them

We want to eradicate the all-too-common syndrome of ending our life with regrets
That’s why we provide to those who dare to dream big the strategies, the tools and the
inspiration to live their ambition and some how shape the world in doing so.

Our VISION How we want to see the world tomorrow

A world where Mastering yourself
Is as cool as running with your Nike outfit

A world where people
tap into their potential and have sparkles in the eyes.
gain discipline, think for themselves, and live the life that truly inspires them.

OUR VIBE The way we want to realize our vision

At Paradox, we create Awe for people

We start by pondering of what is the next crazy thing to accomplish
Then we rely upon one obsession : create wonder, astonishment,
and give to our clients what they have never seen before.
That’s why you’ll hear often “that’s not badass enough yet”

Our AMBITION As a company what do we aim for

We want to create masterpieces
And shake the common ways in our industries

Produce what very few companies have the courage to do
and make people say “wow”.

Today we serve millions of people.
We hope to one day serve billions of people.

It’s a not job for us, it’s about…

AMBITION

MEANING

ADVENTURE

We invite you to explore our culture page where we describe our values

Our goals have always been the same

Dream, experiment, pay attention to the details, and keep learning
Have an impact in the world

And Look for the next crazy thing

We are extremely ambitious
We strive for excellence

And we believe it becomes possible only in making our journey amazing that is why…

Fun is also part of our story

At any given time you might see team members cracking Jokes and laughing.
We believe fun is part of making extraordinary things.

But it’s not for everyone….

We are also aware that…
a culture of performance and ambition
is not for everyone

and we respect that.

To enjoy working with us people need to be inspired

People who love that, love our culture
And are loved and cherished for that.

Our Story…

From nothing to a good beginning

(Yes because it’s just the beginning!
That’s why we may need you)

At first they laughed at us and that was hard

in a way we understand now we needed to work and improve
We did it and it payed off…

That was fun…

We challenged ourselves to book the prestigious
Theatre Espace Pierre Cardin
At Champ-Elysees Paris

2014 The huge mile stone

Pasino Aix En Provence
For us renting and filling a room that big
for 2 hours was a huge mile stone

But It was a mess…

4 people to register everyone was a struggle,
we were 45 minutes late to start the show
(We realised we wanted to grow a little bit too fast
That was challenging but we made it together

200 entrepreneurs came to grow their businesses

2015 We dreamt of renting the Eiffel Tower

It seemed Impossible, but we did it

2018 we did it again but for a 3-day

This time we nailed it !
It was smooth

This time we nailed it !
It was smooth

The TEAM VIDEO DOING HIS MAGIC 😉

Events are for us a great and important moment

We are together and build something together,
We meet our clients, and do everything to make them Smile
We challenge ourselves, and finish exhausted but we like that!

Maybe because we celebrate together
with a good Pizza at the end

Vegetarian or fruit juices for some 😉
Others prefers champagne 😉

Meanwhile we realised…

We were fedup of all the non-sense theories that discredit our industry

(Not grounded, fantasies, get rich quick, 0 effort theories…)
That is why…

We wanted to learn from the best
and share their strategies

Marc Simoncini

Founder of Meetic

We are so thankful for the time they all have given us
we learned so much…

but we faced a problem
in the process of sharing what we learned

Because we were accepting a wrong and too common assumption
The more knowledge you share the better
The more complex and abstract it is the prouder you feel

But the only metric we should care about is
how much people change

It leaded us to study what research says about pedagogy
and discovered that our brain is wired to learn only through
practice, group work, and stories

From that day we became obsessed to make it part of our DNA

And we didn’t expect what would happened in doing so

our Ted Talk became the most viewed French Ted Talk in the world
With more than 2,500,000 views

2,500,000 views

But you know what?

Numbers are not our most important accomplishments
As you know now what matters the most for us

is about how people changed their lives

Our Dreams were realised but…

Deeply we knew there were something greater to do
It was time to explore something new

We sat and discussed (not just once but for 1 year)

We ask ourselves if the dream was about doing just the same but bigger…
But it was not…

We decided to create new brands

What does it means to work with us ?

    Our goals have always been the same:

  • Dream, experiment, pay attention to the details, and keep learning
  • Do exceptional work, create masterpieces and amaze our clients
  • Build the best products and services
  • Have an impact in the world
  • Have fun in the process

But maybe it’s not for you….

We have a very startup oriented culture
If you’re only comfortable in the corporate format, it’s not for you

We are also aware that…
a culture of performance and ambition is not for everyone
and we respect that.

Some people may have the assumption that because we want to contribute to
people well-being, then they are going to work in a easy and bisounours work place.
If so we prefer to save their time and the trouble of applying.

To enjoy working with us you need to be inspired
to do great things and to surpass yourself.

People who love that, love our culture
And are loved and nurtured

live the Paradox Nation culture

So finally Why Paradox ?

Paradox : 
Para (Greek) : distinct from
Dox (Latin) : Opinion 
Para dox : contrary to the accepted opinion

We believe mastery lies in paradox, in having the courage to challenge the statuquo and finding your own way
We believe that doing what everybody agree on lead to mediocrity

Paradoxically doing the counter-intuitive things is often strategic

We challenge the status quo of the usual personal development industry messages of Wouh Wouh and Happy World, and not much grounded.
We believe that Excellence become only possible in the mastery of the opposites
Ambition and Gratitude
Perseverance and Letting go
Challenge and support
Optimism and critical thinking…

We inspire people to take care of themselves, dare to challenge the statuquo and pursue what they are truly inspired by and not what seem a great life.

We give the tools and everything people need to BE themselves and appreciate their past, their parents and their life.
We don’t give fantasies to our community but what truly change their life and they love us for that.

Paradox Nation is a lot more than a brand, it’s a movement
We are the people…who thrive for mastery and excellence
We are the people…who dare to pursue their ambition and appreciate their life along the way
We are the people…who aspire to be proud of themselves, to leave a mark and improve the world

We are Paradox Nation
