EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES
I help business professionals who want to take their business to the next level… more clients, more credibility and more fulfillment at work.
I love travel, cooking, music, and the movies… and my number one passion is my work. I love coaching and consulting with business professionals as we work, together, through the process of business development.
Many people tell me I work too much… they have not heard the saying “find what you love and you never have to work a day in your life.” I consider myself fortunate to have found my passion—and I wake up each morning grateful for the opportunity to spend another day doing what I love most.
For nearly 30 years I’ve been working closely with clients in a variety of industries to develop results-driven business development solutions. I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with clients on everything from powerful and innovative design to marketing strategy and business development. I have helped businesses to separate themselves from their competitors and achieve the growth they desire.
Several years ago, I was asked to be on the faculty of a national conference for Managing Partners. As I considered this opportunity, I knew that I needed to be able to hand out something of substance that would enhance my credibility. All of a sudden, a little voice in the back of my head said “write a book, write a book”… the advice I’d been giving my clients for years. So I took my own advice… and it turns out, writing a book was among the most important milestones in my professional life. I’ve now published several books, including my award-winning “Little Black Book” series. You can learn more about these books here.
WHAT TO EXPECT
When We Work Together
Expect a paradigm shift. If you’re not happy with your business and your life, expect to discover new possibilities. If you feel stuck, expect to have your assumptions challenged, as a client expressed, “The biggest change is getting out of my comfort zone. I am speaking to people I normally would not speak to and going to events I normally would not attend.”
We will begin the coaching journey with a half-day one-on-one Intensive that sets the trajectory for our sessions. It’s an experience that is uniquely yours, there are no preconceived notions, nothing is off limits, and there is absolutely no judgment. This is a safe space to contribute to a thriving business: A business that reflects your personal values – and one that fuels the life you want to live instead of getting in the way.
In this safe space you will confront your current belief system, your habits and your frustrations. During our meetings you will be challenged and inspired. You will define goals and confront obstacles. We will do all this together.
Your Confidant, Business Consultant, Team Member and Cheerleader
You’re not alone. My personal and professional resources become part of your network. I am available to answer your questions and address your challenges. This will give you the clarity and confidence to forge through the challenges and achieve your goals. “Paula showed me that I could be the change maker, and I had the power – she was right,” a client points out.
I’ll guide you through the challenges that arise. Here, business is also personal. When your professional life is infringing – or in some cases devouring – your personal life, I will help you make sense of the chaos. It’s not about forcing the kind of balance that means all things are equal, it’s about giving each aspect of your life the time it deserves – the time you want to give it in order to have the business and the life you truly want. A client points out, “She helped clarify what my true priorities are.”
I will be a connector, a problem-solver and a motivator. There is no throwing your hands up in the air and deciding to just give up. You won’t – I won’t let you! I will believe in you until you believe in you.
Expect to be asked to reach out, follow up, speak up and make a plan. I will guide you through those things that are beyond your comfort zone and address the parts of your thinking that are holding you back. So you can live life on your terms.
