My name is Paul Szoldra. I’m a writer.
Here’s what people have said about me:
“Creative genius and superb writer. Will be famous very soon.” -Rob Joswiak
“Paul Szoldra set himself apart as a top performer due to his dedication, intelligence, consistant profesionalism, and superior results delivered in all tasks assigned. I would actively seek to serve or work with Paul again given any opportunity and I reccommend him for whatever future job he chooses to pursue. His leadership potential and trustworthiness cannot be overstated. A true patriot, Marine’s Marine, and dynamic young man whose potential is limitless.” -Adam Latham
“I’ve known Paul for two years and he is nothing short of a superstar…Paul is highly professional and has an upbeat, positive disposition. He is a natural leader, dedicated student and model veteran.” -Dr. Kenneth Knapp
“Paul is a rock star. I came on as a Duffel Blog contributor when the site was getting only a couple dozen views and a handful of fans on Facebook. I’ve watched him grow the site to hundreds of thousands of page views a month and (at the time of this writing) over 40,000 Facebook fans.
Given that, he obviously understands web development and social media, but I’d say that’s because he understands people. Do you know how well he understands people? He manages 30 contributors who write content for the site. He somehow gives 30 writers–writers with egos, who are quirky enough to be funny–enough creative latitude to write content that is fresh, hilarious, and authentic, while at the same time keeping enough control so that the site maintains a consistent editorial vision and doesn’t fly off the tracks.
I’m not exaggerating when I say that I don’t know anyone else who could accomplish what Paul has with the Duffel Blog. The dude makes stuff happen.” -Ron Gullekson
“I recommend Paul Szoldra in whatever endeavor he participates. His qualities as a person and his work ethic and capabilities in the workplace are limitless.” -David Baker
“Paul is and was an outstanding professional exemplified through his work ethic and leadership capabilities. As director of the internship program which Paul was associated with, I recognized right from the beginning that he was an extraordinary candidate and one who we had to have in our program. Paul was a great inspiration to the entire group and a privilege to work with.” -Jason Williams
“It was my privilege to work with Paul backstage in the scoring and media control center at the 2009 CrossFit Games. I was extremely impressed by Paul’s professionalism, leadership, outstanding work ethic and “can-do” attitude. He delivered the goods and kept on smiling! Paul is exactly the sort of person you want on your team.” -Daniel Freedman
“Paul was a very fast learner, who was able to quickly think and determine possible solutions in stressful situations. He was a motivator, and very pleasant to work with. He was always coming up with ideas to improve the work flow and was able to determine a great free solution to prevent fraud, something completely outside of his job description. With his experience as a Marine and his schooling you will be lucky to hire someone like Paul.” -Miguel Velasco
“Paul’s value to our staff was unquestionable to the success of the battalion. I personally placed tasks and duties that were outside the parameters of his expertise and was never disappointed with the end results. When I start my own personal business I pray to have at least one Paul Szoldra on my team, of course 10 would be best. His maturity, organization skills, intelligence, and initiative are well beyond what I consider character for his age and level of exposure in the Marine Corps.” -Roy Taylor
“I give Paul my highest recommendation!” -Col. Daniel Wilson
