She holds an A.A. and B.S Degree of Business from the University of Phoenix.  Paula has served as a panelist as well. One need that she constantly saw was that many had the tools but lacked the ability to implement them. This was also the case with many  of her clients in various professions. Many sought out her advice based on her 20 plus years of experience as a business owner. From there, she decided to pursue a degree in Business with a concentration in Small Business Entrepreneurship. She currently is a author of two books based on her original industry of cosmetology (The Rootz About Hair and If the Salon Walls Could Talk). The third book is based on her teachings to business groups and individuals entitled How to Get Free from People. Her classes are dynamic and give "real life " approaches and tips to troubleshoot with results.
