About Me

Paolina Milana is a first-generation Sicilian American. She grew up as the family translator, becoming the primary caregiver for her mom and sister, both of whom were diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.

Paolina is an award-winning writer and empowerment coach who helps people turn the trials of their lives into triumphs – either through coaching them in the writing of their books or through coaching them in manifesting and co-creating the professional and personal lives they dream of having. Her “Madness to Magic Method” teaches those of us who weren’t born yesterday, especially the professional “do-it-all” women among us, how to use storytelling techniques to overcome adversity, build confidence, foster connections, and drive more business. “Your life isn’t a fairytale, but you ARE the hero of your own story” is a favorite mantra of hers. A former Chief Communications and Marketing Officer with journalistic roots, Paolina has risen to the top of the corporate ladder, has had five books published, (four of them award-winners, including “Seriously! Are We THERE Yet?!”), has built her own six-figure business, and devotes herself now to helping others reimagine their lives, write their next chapters, and become the heroes of their own journeys.
