Dr. Pelè Raymond is a bestselling author, musician, and host of the "PROFITABLE HAPPINESS™ Podcast," where he features the stories of highly successful executives, experts, and entrepreneurs.
Born and raised in a war-torn African refugee village, he was named after Pelé of Brazil--the greatest soccer player on earth—whose influence was so great that it stopped a bloody civil war. Dr. Pelè internalized his namesake's simple, yet powerful secret of success—practice—and later transformed it, developing unique skills in art, music, writing, and inspirational speaking.
Dr. Pelè has experienced first-hand the struggle and victory of starting from humble beginnings to eventually live the American dream. As a young child watching bombs drop death and destruction all around his refugee village, Dr. Pelè remembers how his mother used the soothing power of songs and stories to bring him “happy”, soften the pain of hunger, and chase away the fear. Many years later and halfway around the world, Dr. Pelè has repurposed his life-long passion for music and storytelling toward the world of business, where he created I GOT HAPPY™—a signature process for helping people find success where "happy" meets purpose.
Dr. Pelè is the author of five books and multiple song compositions, and holds an MBA and PHD in organization and management. Today, he captures the attention of audiences around the world as a singer-songwriter, author, inspirational speaker and podcast host. Dr. Pelè artfully blends his passion for music with his purpose to educate and liberate the minds and hearts of professional audiences around the world.
