There are times (usually transitions, stuck points, or growth spurts) when every business owner needs some perspective and practical help.
That’s where I come in. My approach called intuitive intelligence is a unique blend of inner awareness and practical action.
Imagine what it would be like to finally work with someone who “gets you” and can help you achieve your goals. I’m here to give you practical hands-on support to help you create a business you can count on that gives you the freedom you chose this path for in the first place.
When you work with me we get practical and get stuff done.
There are 3 main ways I work with my clients (and sometimes I do a little of all 3):
- Empower, advise, coach, and hold you accountable to do it
- Do it with you
- Do it for you (and take it right off your plate)

Successfully Navigated Uncharted Territory
I had the pleasure of working with Paula on a global project. It was uncharted territory for me and Paula’s input was invaluable. She is a deep thinker with a practical bent. She can effortlessly see both the big picture (purpose) and the tactical steps needed to achieve the goal. She asks powerful and useful questions, engages in creative problem solving, and shows a sincere desire to see her clients thrive. I am glad to recommend Paula to anyone wanting to take their business or project to the next level.

More Confident & Willing to Take Risks
Paula is a fabulous coach. She always asks just the right question to get me thinking. I’ve learned to think beyond the obvious and to delve into my motivations for taking a particular course of action, leading me to make a good shift. As a result of Paula’s coaching I have become more confident and a bit more of a risk taker in a good way. Paula is a very good listener. She quite often hears more than what I say which then leads to further discussion. This is one of her many talents.

She is a trusted confidante and someone who can provide insight in many areas of business from personnel issues, marketing, technology and growth. Paula has helped me focus on my goals and achieve results each year I have worked with her. I continue to work with Paula as my business continues to grow and become more efficient while providing quality service to our clients. She is an invaluable and integral part of my business.

Created Additional 3 Hours Billable Time Each Day
In less than 2 weeks from our last session, I put into practice the tracking we discussed and have discovered an additional 2-3 hours of billable time that was getting lost in the "give a little bit here, give a little bit there" of daily activities. Creating this new habit gives me critical information about my business that is definitely helping me be more effective and profitable.

Fully Confident Raising My Prices
"I raised my prices by 20%,felt fully confident stating my prices. The act of being quiet after I state my fees was a game-changer for me."

Freed From My Concrete Boots of Perfection
"At the time I met Paula I was in a job that kept me very busy and overextended but bored me to tears. As part of that job I got asked to teach a lot of seminars but it terrified me because a storm of anxiety would rage beneath my skin thinking I would not be good enough or not know all the answers if someone asked a question (even though I was a high achiever and had a doctorate in my field!). I was weighed down by my concrete boots of perfection. Initially I felt like I should fix all my “issues” on my own first before pursuing coaching but it quickly became clear that bringing all of who I was to our work together was the catalyst for my greatest growth. Today I feel freer than ever as I attracted a new job teaching at a college which not only pays me more than I was making before but fulfills my desire of intellectual challenge. I now know how to confidently handle being uncomfortable in the moment so that my brilliance can shine. I’ve even embarked on the process of starting my own business to fulfill a lifelong dream. I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds!"
I am on F-I-R-E because of you!!!
"I am on F-I-R-E because of you!!! Thank you Paula for encouraging me and showing me how to navigate Drop Box and Mail Chimp. Over the past three days I have mastered drop box, a non-disclosure agreement, opened my twitter account, started new Facebook promotions, created my first email campaign, and got accepted to host a workshop at an organization I have been trying to get a foot in the door for a long time! I am SO excited! Your wisdom and patience are deeply appreciated!"

Working with Paula Has Been a Great Gift to Myself!
"Working with Paula has been a great gift to myself. She has an easygoing style that allows me to drive the coaching process, yet she balances it with her insights, listening and probing skills, and great suggestions. I was able to create space and time to address things in my work life that had been neglected for too long. She helped me get clear on what I wanted and coached me to ask for what I really wanted in my work relationships. I highly recommend working with Paula!"

My Biggest Surprise? How Much Progress I Could Make in a Short Time
"The biggest surprise for me was how much progress I could make in a relatively short period of time with very easy conversations with you, Paula. You ask questions that are deceptive, because while they are simple, they are incredibly powerful. I received confirmation that in order to achieve my fullest potential, I must continue to slow down and get crystal-clear, before I can take off running. Thank you!"
Freed Up to Offer Expanded Range of Services
"The Pricing with Confidence series enabled me to see that I needed to change how I thought about myself and what I had to offer. I was able to get out of the “what I was doing” and expand my vision to what I love to do, what best uses my talents and is of most value to my clients.
To make the transition, I partnered with an individual to handle day to day, time consuming tasks. This freed me up to offer an expanded range of services, with more emphasis on budgets, cash flow management and business profitability measures.
I have also found the patience to look for those sabotaging voices – to not automatically assume my price was too high because someone does not call me back, to stop before I was about to lower a price or throw something in for free and ask myself “is the client asking for this or is it all in my head”? !"

A Wave of Calm Washed Over Me
“I was surprised at how Paula pointing out how much I had already accomplished with the business helped me to feel like a wave of calm washed over me about what I still needed to get done. This was very helpful as I was feeling panicked about whether I could get it all done and actually start up my business. I really feel that I have more direction now and renewed connection with my original goals for starting the group which is exciting!”

Now Earning More Money in 60% Less Time
"Even though I have been in business many years, I found myself struggling with clients who had budget constraints and often demanded more than the original scope of work for the same price. I had tried a variety of ways to price my services and tweak them but was still feeling more like I was owning a job than a business since I spent all my time reacting to clients and managing my mind chatter. As a result of working with Paula I have forgiven myself for past mistakes and created peace of mind where the mind chatter used to be. By stopping the distractions and getting clear on what I really wanted, I’m now earning more money in 60% less time. Now that feels prosperous on all levels!"
PG The Machine Carr
Raising my Prices was a Game-Changer for Me
"I had been feeling like I'm doing great work but the money was not what I deserved. I knew I had to carve out time to get moving on my pricing and packages but was just waiting (and waiting). As a result if taking Stop Selling Yourself Short - Price with Confidence and Get Paid What You're Worth, I raised my prices by 20%, felt fully confident stating my prices. The act of being quiet after I state my fees was a game-changer for me. As a result I signed up new clients eager for my new offerings and am now on track to meet my income goals. The course not only gave me the confidence to move ahead with this but also practical information that helped me shape my offerings and prove out the viability of my business model."

Empowered Me to Feel – And Know – I Can So This!
“When I first contacted you, I needed guidance and inspiration as I looked to build my own business. I was coming off of some personal challenges and I knew the direction in which I wanted to head but had a difficult time finding where to begin. In just a short time working together I am more focused and I feel like I’m making a significant contribution to my clients.
Honestly, the dollar amount that I’ve spent doesn’t even come to mind in comparison to the benefits I feel I’m receiving from working with you. I am rediscovering a part of me that has lain dormant for such a long time. I feel more authentic in working towards my goals and it’s really enriched my life.
You’re not everyone’s business coach. Others might respond better to the ideas of famous “macho” coaching models that motivate by intimidation and shame. You are certainly not that coach. You have much more depth to you and a wonder-full, refreshing spiritual outlook on things. That really resonates with me and has empowered me to feel - and know - I can do this!”
Annalisa Fox Marketing Strategist and Creative Consultant
Brought Clarity to the Chaos
“It can be so easy when I am so busy to just blow off the really important business building steps and think, “I’ll get to it later.” Paula helped me bring clarity to the chaos by getting me out of the conversation in my own head. It felt like having someone walk alongside me in my venture as a partner in my success. It helped me focus on what I really need to do and do that while releasing the nonessentials.
As a result of working together, I now have a much clearer vision and plan for what I most want my business to be. I’ve increased my confidence exponentially so it is so much easier to present what I do to others. Creating a wonderful price point package and a natural system to bring clients on board has been a huge boost. The whole intuitiveness of Paula’s work really helped me focus on the broader scope so I don’t get sidetracked putting out small fires.”

More Profitable Way to Serve My Clients
“Paula helps you look beyond what you see at face value. She inspires me to look deeper and see bigger and does it all with a sense of humor and practical, realistic approach.
Our work together helped me take time to stop and remember why I went into business. Now, whenever I have to make a decision I use my personal definition of success as my guiding compass. It helps me make sure that I put my energies in the right place and honor the flexibility and family connection that inspired me to start my business after a long career in healthcare.
With this new way of seeing possibilities and how I operate in my business I’m able to tap into a new expanded model which gives me more ways to serve my ideal customers. I’m able to be more purposeful and intentional about who I serve and how I serve them in a high-quality and more profitable way!”

Created More Empowering & Freeing Outcomes
“I’m very passionate about my career and strive to keep a clear head during day-to-day business dealings. When I met Paula I found myself in challenging circumstances that made ‘clear head thinking’ preventative. After Paula and I started talking, I found that that I could better channel my emotion into specific tangible actions and productive goals.
Paula has a unique skill set in that she is able to be passionate about the business world while challenging people to stay in harmony with their thoughts and feelings. Rather than staying in ‘business’ or ‘reactionary’ mode, she was able to help me prioritize my objectives in a positive way that created both emotional depth as well as better balance in my work and personal life.
After working with Paula I have better clarity about the direction of my short and long-term goals. With that clarity I have developed a more consistent, strategic mindset. Before our discussions I found that many times my decisions were clouded with judgments or emotions. With Paula’s help I was able to focus intently on the objectives behind my goals and create more empowering and freeing outcomes.”
Dana Jacoby Medical Consultant and Business Development Executive
Made Things Crystal Clear
"The Business Health Checkup was so simple and painless to take and I loved it because it made things crystal clear to me. It highlighted to me the things I've known and said to myself but wasn't sure about. It forced me to pause and think about the assumptions and questions that came to mind while completing the worksheet. After my session with Paula I am clear on my specific next steps and priorities during a time of transition for me and my business."
