Tap Into the Power in You by Paolina Milana

Let Your Light Shine

I love the color purple. Periwinkle is my favorite. (Can you tell? It’s not like I hide it. LOL)

But I used to. I used to hide a lot of things. I learned to dim my light to fit in. People pleaser that I was, I didn’t want anyone else to feel “outshined” so I forced myself to play small. Some people told me I was still “too much” while others said no matter what, I just “wasn’t enough.” I realized that I was spending a lot of my time playing by everybody else’s rules.

Sound familiar?

Then one day, it clicked. And I asked myself a question from one of my favorite movies, What A Girl Wants: "Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?"

I've since learned how to let my light shine. In my empowerment coaching work, I've put together a playbook to help others tap into their own power so they can shine bright living life by their own rules, too.

I’d love to do the same for you.

Sometimes the Strongest Need the Most Help

It’s madness, isn’t it? We keep so many plates spinning for so long. We’re the ones other people come to for help and advice, not the other way around. But I’ve learned that, sometimes, it’s the strongest among us who need the most help. And from one powerful person to another, I’ve turned madness into magic countless times for myself, and through my empowerment coaching for people who, like you, don’t have time or money to waste on what won’t work.

I’m REAL.  I’m unique. I’m not one of those “woowoo-gooroos”; I’m more of a spark of magic armed with tools and “how-tos” to get you unstuck and well on your way to where you want to be. I’m equal parts “comforter” and “kick your ass” when it comes to life coaching, and I have built my reputation on inspiring others with compassion and humor to find their “there” and to enjoy the adventure along the way. While I am a Los Angeles based life coach, my clients come to me from throughout North America, meeting online either by phone or video conferencing.

Turn Your Madness to Magic

If Nothing Changes
Nothing Changes.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to remember who you are and to tap into the power in you.

“Paolina Stopped The Bleeding”

“I connected with Paolina during a time of major life transition.  My sister had recently died, and I had just moved to California from a BIG publishing job in the Chicago area…”

“…Dropping my life and moving to California was my only choice, if I was going to live with myself.  My elderly mother needed care, and she needed me. After I moved, I started doing a little freelance consulting when I had time, but work wasn’t coming easily.  I really was struggling with my identity. Who was I now if not an ‘executive’ with a healthy paycheck?  No kids, no husband, and only two living family members – one with little time left.  What would matter and who would I be after my mother was gone if I didn’t have my big career? I lost my confidence, my hope and my perspective.  Paolina stopped the bleeding.  I walked away from just our first conversation with a new hope and perspective I hadn’t had in months, and the journey continues.  She really got me. And made me laugh.  And didn’t speak ‘self-help’ nonsense to me.  She pointed out things that I had become completely blind to, and handed me some new tools to start the journey.  She knew what I was experiencing, and helped me begin the process of finding myself again.  If my story sounds like you, Paolina Milana is the life coach you need. You’ll be just as glad as I am to have her help you remember who you are and move forward to an even better you.”

“She Truly Is Magic And Makes Connections You Can’t See”

“Paolina was my first phone call in the middle of my personal crisis. She stayed calm and talked me through a clear path to take. She helped me find my center and take steps from there…”

“…It made the world of difference, and I’m certain it transformed the situation. For anyone finding themselves in the middle of madness, she truly is magic and makes connections that you can’t really see on your own to get you back to a place of peace. I so recommend her as a life coach.”

“As A Coach, She Will Kick You In The Arse”

“In my experiences with Paolina, she has been caring, motivating, supportive, insightful, intensely honest, and most importantly loving. As a coach, she will kick you in the arse and hold you…”

“…accountable! She truly wants you to be the best you!”

“Paolina Reminds Me I Have So Much Value, And I’m Worthy”

“Where do I start?! A little over a year ago, I was introduced to Paolina Milana. She has proven to me over and over again, what I have known all along. Life is so much better with a coach!...”

“…Everyone can benefit from someone who can be called upon to discuss ideas with and converse with and look at us as an individual, and see the greatness within… that we have long ago lost sight of. Whether it be our self-worth, or what we have forgotten that we know, Paolina has a way of bringing it out from the depth of our souls. She sees the value in us and helps me to see the same. She has helped me in a personal way by helping me to document my life in writing, with vision boards, recordings and chapters of my memoir. She has helped me to run my company with a new vision and remind me of the knowledge I know has value but has become so mundane that I take it for granted and dismiss it. She reminds me I have so much value to my own real estate clients. She has picked up the pieces where I fall short to get me to my goals… She has even helped me to believe in myself that I am worthy to love… The last year, for me, has been the best input that I have ever had because of this lady. I have looked at me in a very different way and as a result it has renewed my future vision. I have seen life unfold again. I have gone from hopeful to grateful! Paolina is a multi-faceted strong life coach in the most compassionate way and like a good workout, you don’t even realize the leaps and bounds you have made until you have seen the results that have been conquered. I am so confident in her ability to spend time and sort out direction, timing and results. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!”

“She Helped Me Set Aside The Self-Doubt That Was Holding Me Back”

“Paolina has been a wonderful coach -- and cheerleader -- as I transition my career from television writing/production/management to a position in the non-profit or corporate world…”

“…She has helped me realize how marketable I really am, and to set aside the self-doubt that was holding me back. In our work together, I’ve learned a lot about myself and explored a variety of career possibilities to hone in on the type of position that would be the best fit for my interests and financial needs. If you’re willing to be an active participant in your career transition process and put in the thought and effort to learn new approaches to finding your dream job, I highly recommend Paolina!”

“She Made Me Feel Like I Was Worth A Million Bucks”

“I sought out Paolina for some advice on a business proposition I was offered. She went above and beyond in research. I’m sure this is her superpower! Her expertise helped me think about what I wanted…”

“…to do, structuring my goals in a way that I’d never thought of before, helping me focus on the things that really mattered to me and how I could achieve them, seeing my true path and the direction I wanted to be going. She helped me clearly see this new business proposition wasn’t in alignment with my goals or my heart. If you are so lucky to come across her path, be open to what she has to offer. I am eternally grateful for her generosity, cut-through-the-crap, yet kind-hearted way she made me feel like I was worth a million bucks.”
