We had the good fortune of connecting with Paula Branez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Paula, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
I want people to remember me as someone positive, a dreamer, someone that was genuinely happy, someone that inspires others to follow their dreams, to look at the bright side of things. I want people to remember me as someone that left a positive trademark in their life’s, a change maker, someone that truly believed that love conquers all.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Have you ever felt that you let yourself go through life without being the protagonist of your own story? Many times in our lives we live automatically without being aware of why we do what we do, what we feel, what we think and why we act as we act. Living like this takes away the power of realizing what is good and bad for us, and therefore the power to fully enjoy the things that makes us happy as well as being able to get up from difficult situations. Everything we think, feel and how we act is our inside world, which is what we can control, as opposed to what happens in our outside world, which are people or circumstances, over which we have no control. what I do as a Kids Life Coach is to help kids and adolescents to be aware of their inside world, helping them recognize their thoughts, emotions, and reactions, to get to know themselves and stop living automatically. This self awareness leads them to make good decisions to be authentically happy regardless of their circumstances and becoming the leaders of their own lives. Through Coaching I give them skills and tools necessary to strengthen that inside world. Giving them the power to be in control of their inside world, because when they are aware they are capable of making good choices, which gives them freedom to be the best version of themselves, ceasing to act automatically. All U need is U Kids Life Studio was born on October 2018 as a side business, but during the pandemic the emotional challenge attached to the pandemic opened me new doors and I was able to virtually coach children around the world. My sisters and I created The HERO FOUNDATION Located in La Paz Bolivia and together we were able help kids and adolescents strengthen their inside world. Everyday we had groups with kids and adolescents from Bolivia, Mexico, USA and Colombia. God was opening doors even when all the frontiers were closed. I learned that when we walk with faith instead of fear the possibilities are endless and when your dream involves the wellbeing of others, the opportunities are abundant. Now as a Full time Kids Life Coach I live everyday knowing that I am positively impacting the lives of the young ones.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Covid showed me that traditional activities are overrated lol! So spending more quality time together instead of visiting places is a great idea to spend time together. Play board games, watch movies. Have a fun dinner while watching old pictures and videos. Eat home made food together and create more memories to share!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My husband supported me since day one, he still does. He is my rock, my fresh breath of air that believes in me.
My clients gave me permission to use the pictures.
