“There are very few people in the media and advocacy world that support their clients as much as EMPRESS has done. As a creator, the work led by Paula Duran has supported my projects immensely. The community gatherings she designed and created helped launch my Compton Cowboys book and my podcast, California Love. Both projects went on to receive critical acclaim, which would not have happened without Paula's help."

"I am in the healing arts, and I honestly didn’t get into this to make a business out of it. But I had something to share, and slowly I’ve built my business around healing with water.Working with Paula and Empress has provided me with insight & support to incorporate more creative and expansive ways to offer my healing gifts to a broader audience while still maintaining the integrity of my work’s essence. Her experience, expertise, and, most importantly, the essence is what allows me, as a woman-lead business model, to feel seen and creative."

"Before working with Paula, I didn't have a plan for my business. I felt scattered and struggled to make enough money to live off my business. Paula guided me towards clarity on my mission and how I can achieve my goals. I'm so happy I invested in my business and myself, even though, at the time, I couldn't fully afford it. Not only have I received a return on my investment, but I also now feel more confident, and I am officially the founder of a thriving corporation."
