Welcome to Step Up! I’m Paul de Burger, a professional speaker, writer, photographer and world traveller.

Step Up! is a podcast focused on motivation, amazing people, and the will to live life on your terms. What does this mean? It means I talk to people with interesting stories and backgrounds to help you tap into their knowledge base and learn from their experiences. I talk to musicians, entrepreneurs, adventurers, writers, health and wellness experts, doctors, athletes, and trail blazers from all walks of life.

The podcast offers long-form discussions (between 45-60 mins), with no constraints on content or format, a relaxed environment, and on-location interviews.

I love listening to podcasts and wanted to give back to the world by providing content that people will find entertaining and motivating. So here we are – sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
