I’m Paul Bernard II
Creative Designer, Digital Marketing & Media Expert
Grand Rapids, MI
A creative born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti
“don’t tell them your plans. show them your results”
I was born as Paul Bernard II in Port-au-Prince, Haiti to a family with a well known network in the country especially on the government and religious side. This was right before our family moved to Grand Rapids, MI due to my father receiving a director’s role at an international Bible translation company.
Following my father’s passion for business I started a series of successful ecommerce stores in 2018. This grew my knowledge of the digital marketing world which led me to starting my own firm in 2019. We closed contracts and gained partnerships with the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce, Batteries Plus, Worthington Industries, the LA Pan-African Film Festival, and some other big names.
After growing that company well over six figures in a year’s time at the age of 19, my partners and I started a bulk cbd distribution company and ranked the site number 1 on Google. We did $35k the first month in sales and grew it over six figures within 6 months. I was the head of all supplier and distributor relations.
I currently serve as the Director of Public Relations for the Jaycee Chamber of Commerce in Grand Rapids, MI while managing my various businesses. My years of experience may not add up to much, but my speed and effectiveness has allowed me to gain an imprint in the industries my businesses perform in.
I remain a pinnacle member of my family. After losing my older brother years ago, I am the only child that will carry on my family last name. My purpose in life is to bring peace and prosperity back to my country and set an example for other minorities and immigrants to follow.
