Paula Black and I met through a mutual friend at a time when I was contemplating a big career change. From the moment we met, I was impressed with her authenticity, directness, genuine kindness, positivity, and unique perspective. Her skills and abilities go way beyond the legal field, and I quickly discovered she is a retail gal at heart! Go figure! She listened intently to my story and helped lay the groundwork for a path forward to achieve what I wanted, not what was expected of me. With the guidance of her and her fabulous team, we just finished my first book on retail leadership!

As a business coach, Paula is one of the best that I have encountered in my career. She is honest, real, funny, tough, fair and has a huge heart. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her guidance spot on. After our sessions, I am always snapped back to reality with clarity and focus on what needs to be achieved short term and longer term. I am blessed to have her as a coach and a dear friend. I will be forever grateful for her love and support.
