28 year old Pauleanna Reid is perhaps the boldest and most self-assured person I’ve ever met. Check her out on Facebook and Twitter. You’ll see what I mean. However, to be fair, you can’t achieve the levels of success that Pauleanna has without being supremely confident.
Pauleanna’s journey has been remarkable. In high school she failed grade 11 and 12 English. Later, she dropped out of college and was even diagnosed with a mental illness in 2010. In our interview, she revealed the strategies she used to overcome her setbacks and how she was able to gain the clarity to pursue her dreams.
Today she is an Amazon best-selling author, a nationally published journalist who has interviewed Dr. Oz and Lenny Kravitz, and renowned speaker who has travelled to numerous countries.
She credits mentors for opening the doors to opportunities for her and on the podcast she revealed her unique approach to finding top notch mentors. Infact, Pauleanna is somewhat of a mentorship guru and has transformed her skills and experiences into New Girl on the Block, a mentorship program for millennial women that she co-founded.
