WHO IS THIS GIRL?
Change doesn’t come from someone telling you what to do. It comes from inspiration. It is my deep passion to get to truly know you and your dreams, desires, fears, challenges and passions so that together we create the success blueprint that you are meant to uncover. YOU will be your own biggest inspiration.
So let’s get started. Grab your water, wine or drink of choice and let’s find some connections.
If I were teenage Paige looking at me now, I’d be so incredibly proud. But it wasn’t always rainbows and sunshine and Beyonce like fierceness.
I was raised in Newport, North Carolina.
Sports were always a huge part of my life and they continually open doors for me. I was fortunate enough to earn a softball scholarship at the University of North Carolina where I majored in Journalism and Mass Communication.
Like so many of us (us as in most people at some point in their lives), I had no idea what I wanted to do with my degree so upon being thrown into “the real world,” I set up a few internships for myself. I worked in Atlanta for Allied Integrated Marketing and then in Charlotte for the Charlotte Sports Foundation. From there I went into sales…I literally stood in Sam’s Club selling skin care products to anyone and their grandma who walked by my booth.
You do what you’ve got to do, right? Wrong!
My whole job now is helping you avoid a situation like that one to find what you truly desire.
I then began as a Leasing Consultant working for a luxury apartment community in Wilmington, NC. My job there was great because I got to meet all kinds of different people who were looking for their next home. I was nominated for several leasing awards and promoted pretty quickly.
Even when things were at their best, I felt like real estate wasn’t my calling so I started praying about getting back into college athletics. I kid you not, I remember writing in my journal “I feel like I’m running in the woods with blinders on and I hope you are looking down laughing at me because you have a plan…” The very next day my college softball coach called me and said Arkansas was looking for a Director of Operations.
So I Googled where Arkansas was on the map…. and here I am, four years later!
MY 'AH-HA!' MOMENT
When I first took my job, I told everyone it was a dream job. And I MEANT it! My boss aka our head softball coach is an amazing human being and a super-mom and just all around goals. She is the reason I took the job so quickly. I felt like God nudged me in this direction a little but then after my first phone call with my boss, something felt right and I moved here sight unseen.
Go with your gut, always.
I’m getting all in my feels now but seriously, I have an incredible job. The rest of the staff is just as amazing and I get to serve them and a group of gifted young women all for the sport that gave me so much.
So then what was missing? I remember sitting in my office listening to the coaches go on and on and on and on and on about one play in our game the weekend before. I rolled my eyes and my initial thought was, “get the heck over it.” BUT in the very next thought, I imagined what it would be like to be SO passionate about what I do. You may not know the answer to this very question now, but you will when we work together.
It was this moment and hiring my first coach that gave me some momentum. So did a proposal I wrote for graduate school about motivation. I finished my masters in Recreation and Sport Management in May 2018.
Fast forward a year and a half into Paige Rene Coaching LLC and things are VERY different. Instead of moving through the motions of my day, fighting the gym and Netflixing for hours, I spend my time reading, writing, talking with clients, creating new ways to increase performance and ultimately living my life at the peak of my performance. Now it is my true passion to share these high performing habits with incredible women and athletes like you.
