I'm Paulie Skaja (pronounced Sky-a): intuitive coach, inspirational speaker, life-transformation author and so much more.
All my life, people have been coming to me for guidance on how to deal with their challenges and I’ve intuitively known how to assist them. It wasn’t until I became a recruiter and began helping my candidates get rid of their limiting beliefs, while teaching them to reframe their conversations that I realized I’d been given a gift. I’m able to “see” the root of a problem; quickly define a strategy for getting rid of the limiting pattern, belief, or idea; and help people [and teams] create a new reality.
I’ve been coaching people for as long as I can remember. People just start sharing their situations with me and I offer suggestions to help them out. It’s only been in the past few years that I’ve realized how unique my coaching style is and how quickly my clients’ lives are transformed.
Coaching is my passion. Whether I’m coaching a group at an event, working with an individual, or guiding a team, I’m in the zone when you are learning to take control of your life. People have shared that they accomplish more in an hour or two working with me than they’ve been able to deal with in years using traditional approaches. I’m not a psychologist or therapist. I’m an intuitive coach with years of personal experiences (mine and those of loved ones) and LOTS of techniques to draw upon.
Over the years, I’ve helped tens of thousands of people around the world change their circumstances and take control of their outcomes. Some of my clients have included Fortune 500 companies… and I use the same techniques when I work with individuals like you (at a more cost-effective rate though).
Imagine learning how to identify your limiting patterns or unwanted beliefs and having the techniques to let them go and change your life. When you do what you’ve always done you’ll get what you’ve always gotten…so if you want to really change your life, stop complaining and take action. If you are ready to start speaking your truth, taking control of your life, and really living with purpose and passion, contact me now. There are a variety of ways I work with people and organizations… so let’s work together to see what’s right for you.
While it took me almost five decades of putting everyone else first; worrying about what people thought of me; and trying to be the “perfect” daughter, sister, mom, wife, daughter-in-law, friend, or whatever the role may be, these opportunities helped me gain clarity to take control of my life. Recently, a person in my life told me that I am an “over achiever.” She said this in a way that made me feel bad. Then I realized that she made this comment because she was looking for a reason behind my success that made sense to her; she wanted to understand why I have so many skills and talents. In her mind, it has to be because I “have issues with my mom.”
The irony of this statement is that my parents helped me become the person I am. My mom taught me how to knit, crochet, embroider, cook, and entertain (and many other skills). My dad taught me how to interact with all types of people, think strategically, solve problems and gain the trust of others. Both parents gave me a strong work ethic and moral foundation.
While my relationship with my mom has been far from perfect, it is not because I have “mommy issues” that I strive to be better. It is because I was raised to always stretch myself to be strong enough to overcome any obstacle and be a positive role model. If this makes me an over achiever, then I am happy to accept that title. My way of life has helped tens of thousands of people around the world so far and will allow me to help millions in the end.
I believe we are here to learn, to grow and to enjoy life. How can you do any of this if you are trapped in the past, reliving the pain or holding yourself back by playing small? Each of us has been blessed with life lessons and opportunities. The difference is how we choose to use them. Who do you want to become? How do you want to live your life? How do you want to be remembered?
My purpose for writing these books is to help you learn, heal and grow so you can fulfill your life’s purpose and follow our passion. I hope you enjoy my stories and if you find yourself choosing to change your life, I hope it is in the direction of taking control of your destiny. You are in total control of yourself and your life. Stop playing small. Decide how you want your life to be and become an “over achiever” in the eyes of others as you live your life to the fullest. Life is an adventure. Live through possibilities and enjoy every moment.
