Meet Paula

Hey, Lady! Welcome.

I am so glad you're here.

Paula Engebretson, Ph.D. | Life Coach

Here's what I know about you.

If I described you in three words, they would be: passionate, hard-working, and creative. 

If I described your life in one word it would be: busy.

Am I close? If so, then let me ask you this…

Have you ever felt so overwhelmed by a big project that you lost all motivation to get started? Do you ever look at the clock and wonder how the day got away from you? 

How many times have you thought: “I wish I had more control in my life.”

I hear you, friend, and I get it

Let me State the Obvious...

We’re a busy bunch of humans.

We live in a constant state of motion. We jump from one activity to the next. And we squeeze in as much as possible with the time that we have.

And while this means a life filled with possibility, our relentless schedule and unrealistic expectations can also lead to anxiety, overwhelm, and exhaustion.

That, my friend, is simply no way to live.

Hey, Friend. I'm Paula.

I’m a life coach, a podcaster, an online educator, a wife, and a dog mom.

And I know how you’re feeling right now.

I know the constant stress you feel as you juggle your countless responsibilities each day.

I know your feeling of overwhelm as you think about the unending to-do lists scattered across your desk, your kitchen counter, and your bedside table.

And I know the frustration and sheer exhaustion you experience when you don’t have time to pursue your goals, practice self-care, or simply slow down and catch your breath

As women, we have a lot on our plates; balancing family, work, friendships, and furbabies, it’s often difficult to “do it all” (not to mention find time for ourselves.)

And for nearly ten years, I struggled with that very thing. I constantly found myself thinking:

I need to do it all, but I can't.

I worked constantly. I chased one shiny object after the next. And I kept pushing for the “next success” as I attended graduate school, completed my Ph.D., worked as an adjunct professor and then a postdoc, and finally began working as a professor.

And throughout the entire experience, I was over-scheduled, over-worked, and constantly on the brink of burnout.

I struggled to discover that elusive “work-life balance” as I consistently worked 80+ hours a week.

I was endlessly busy but rarely productive.

And while I knew something needed to shift, I couldn’t figure out what it was. So I just kept working.

Then I found coaching. And that's when things changed.

That’s when I learned how to create a schedule that allows for both work and rest.

That’s when I learned how to work smarter and not harder.

That’s when I learned how to separate who I am from my job title or my accomplishments.

That’s when I learned how to take massive action and make my biggest goals a reality.

And as a certified life coach through The Life Coach School, I have the honor of helping other busy women discover their paths.

I get to help strong, powerful women stop feeling overwhelmed about their to-do list, get control of their schedule, and finally feel proud of their accomplishments each day. 

I want to help you do the same.

To get started, sign up for a free 45-minute call with me.
