Now To Love Profile

On Saturday, June 2, Auckland business woman Paula Gosney will be staging a women’s event that she’s unwittingly spent her whole life preparing for. The event, Courage, Connection and Badassary is an afternoon conference which encourages women to celebrate who we are, right now, broken parts and all.


A writer, businesswoman and warrior. Fiercely honest, a passionate coach and a woman who knows we are much more capable than we allow ourselves to believe.

With a remarkable career, establishing the first of three successful businesses at 21, she discovered along the way, a great talent for personal development, public speaking and coaching others to find their own greatness.

Having shared her knowledge with audiences of thousands; it is here that Paula did her 10,000 hours in human development.

Life threw some nasty events her way as a young woman, sent to boarding school at eleven, never to live at home again and the victim of a serious sexual assault as a teenager; a decline into hard drugs and alcohol plagued much of her twenties. “I lived a double life: one of a successful entrepreneur, the other a woman in deep pain relentlessly trashing my body, like the worthless object the rape had taught me it was.”

In Paula’s pursuit of happiness, she spent hundreds of hours sitting at the feet of PD masters, devouring anything that would help her through her personal pain.

Belief School is the culmination of all she has learnt, taught and lived through. She believes if she had been exposed to the principles that now define her life, she would have healed quicker, loved earlier and been able to contribute sooner.
