Paula's passion is to encourage women to enrich the lives of other women worldwide.

Biography

As a woman who fully embraces continuous learning, I started law school at age 40, and believe in continuous learning as a way of life. We are all works in progress… evolving day by day.

Having been admitted to practice law in four states (NY, NJ, GA and MD), I was a trial attorney in New York and as in-house legal counsel for a technology startup in Maryland. Working with “techies” taught me not to be intimidated by technology and the internet.

For a short time, I ventured into the world of network marketing where I learned the concepts of motivation and team building. Then, I partnered with another woman and brainstorming together, they developed the concept of building an online community or team of women experts to help other women in business. When we each went her separate way in May 2006, I started creating the concept and website for Women’s Support TEAM – an online one-stop resource for women.

As Founder and CEO, my idea was first to build a web-based resource with women helping other women achieve more success with less stress globally through Mentors, Coaches, digital informational products, affiliate solutions, articles, events, links to resources, and more at www.WomenSupportTeam.com, and then to build a non-profit division.

WS TEAM is all about women supporting women through not only the exchange of practical information but also with online resources to give back to others, embrace fun, pamper themselves, and tap into their creative side.

Now, I am following my true passion – the 1000 Women Can Change the World Corporation - this not-for-profit corporation (501(c)(3) (application pending) that I have been building with the able assistance of Boardroom Bound’s Linda Bolliger at www.1000WomenCanChangeTheWorld.org.

Its mission is to inspire, enlighten and empower women worldwide with practical, useful life and business skills – information that is easy to access, use and pass on to others. By enriching the lives of women now, we create a lasting legacy for generations to come.

You may be wondering how I came up with this movement. As the product of an extremely dysfunctional family that included being victim of sexual abuse, I have always been a survivor. Despite moving up and down the East coast and attending more than twenty-five different schools, I have been determined to not only turn her own life around, but to reach out and help other women be all that they can be.

Having been fully immersed the “the ole’ boy” world during my career as a lawyer, I believe that when we work together to help others succeed – sharing our expertise and wisdom – we all truly do achieve more – and it feels good too!

Let me know your thoughts on empowering women and giving back.
