When you’re an ambitious entrepreneur ready to scale into your big vision...

It can feel like you’re stuck in groundhog day when you don’t have the right support team

You’ve created great momentum in your business, but it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with #allthethings.

You’re starting to see the gaps and the balls being dropped, but you don’t want to miss any opportunities.

You know you need the right support team around you so you can thrive, but the thought of hiring new team members makes you cringe because it feels so overwhelming.

Plus, you’re a high achiever, so handing over control feels hard because you’ve done it all ‘your way’ up until now (and it’s working pretty well thanks very much😉😬).

You’re probably stuck on questions like:

Here’s the thing:

You can learn how to be a

a Powerful CEO

who makes epic hiring decisions

time and time again, resulting in a team you’re unbelievably proud of

Let me coach you through

my powerful hiring process

so you can set up your very own dream team

The truth is,

it’s possible to feel excited for the future, less overwhelmed AND more structured in your business and leadership approach

When you master hiring,

you’ll expand your capacity for growth, be open to more opportunities, and start feeling that sense of spaciousness you’ve always wanted


"What I got was more than just how to write a job description, how to hire, how to do the interview and how to onboard. What I learnt was who I wanted to be as a leader, the skills that I had, the gaps that needed to be filled. I learnt about what works and what doesn’t work. So I was able to really step into this role of CEO and leader, which was actually the hardest part for me. I highly recommend working with Paula.

Over the past 15+ years,

I’ve developed a powerful hiring process that’s helped business owners from around the world to build their dream teams. And if you’re reading this…

it’s time for you TO BUILD YOURS TOO. Because you need some room to breathe – and for your business to expand into its true potential.


"Paula gave me so much clarity and helped me ask myself the right questions and actually gave me a strategy on how to hire in my business. What I thought I needed did not end up being what I actually needed. So not only did she provide me with that clarity to support a really fast-moving business, but Paula also saved me so much money in the process."

Hiring Mastery is different because

While some business coaches 'claim' to offer team-building support – they don’t have the knowledge to truly hold your hand through this process.

And, they usually only offer how you can 'replicate' what they've done.

With 15+ years of experience in recruitment and HR, I've worked with businesses in diverse industries and can expertly guide you to unravel and uncover for yourself who you truly need (rather than just repeating what someone else has done and hoping for the best...)

This is a transformative experience where you'll learn a simple, repeatable recruitment process that’ll allow you to step up as a CEO and confidently grow your support team and business


🔥 Get absolute clarity and confidence about who you’re looking for and why

🔥 Know exactly the right questions to ask at an interview to make critical hiring decisions (so you don’t have to deal with the drama later....)

🔥 Find team members who show up for your business 100%, hit their targets, and stay for the long haul

🔥 Stop working 50+ hours a week on #allthethings and start focusing on the things you love, with spaciousness to lean into your big vision

🔥 Hand over time-consuming activities like client project management and take your first real holiday in years!

🔥Get really great at handing over control as you see how wonderful it is to not be doing all the things anymore


Module 1


I’ll walk you through how to get crystal clear on exactly who you need to join your business.

We're talking the specific skills, experience and behaviours for your next hire so you know you’re calling in exactly the right person for your business.

Skipping this step is where *MOST* entrepreneurs go wrong (but you’re not most people…😉).



I'll teach you how to write a beautifully comprehensive and compelling job ad that’ll attract your dream applicants.

Plus you'll know exactly how and where to share it for maximum exposure.

And, how to easily screen for your best-fit applicants and respond with grace to those who don’t quite make the cut.



This is where we create a comprehensive and inspiring list of interview questions and an easy-to-follow interview structure, so you can powerfully dig into the key hiring criteria you’ve identified earlier.

Being able to interview well is a skill that will not only help you with this hire, but with EVERY hire afterwards. When you get confident at this – nothing can hold you back!



You’ve made your decision and you’re on your way to the growth and spaciousness you’ve been dreaming of.

But before you sit back and relax, you need to make sure you set your new team member up for success by creating a rock-solid onboarding process.

This means you both have a clear, agreed path forward and there’s less room for missteps or issues.

Plus you’ll get my handy email swipe files to save you time and give you an extra boost of confidence – because you’ll never be stuck wondering how to acknowledge someone’s awesome application, or how to send out that ‘rejection’ letter…

You’ll have the exact process to hire

your next rockstar

and every rockstar after that


"I worked with Paula and the impact it's had on my business is absolutely incredible. I've become a lot more clear with my team. She really helped me to define the roles that I needed within my team and I really think that I've just become a much better leader as a result. I cannot recommend Paula enough.

She honestly has just been so fantastic and so instrumental in helping me to build a better and more profitable business."

❌ Your business isn't profitable and you don't have the cash for a new team member yet.
