Paula Kouman

Wealth Builder Task Force

I am a blessed mother of two kings who are strong in Faith, walk in Wisdom and are on their Purposeful Journey. Two queens who are the Epitome of Gentleness and Strength, Intelligence and Bravery. Each one Embrace Possibility and Strive for the betterment of each life they touch.

A Florida native and tropical girl at heart, I need the warmth of the sun on my skin. To put it simply, no four walls can hold me. My heart and spirit thrive on the freedom to be myself. Because of this, at an early age I knew I was born to be an entrepreneur. I started my first business at 19 years old and failed forward, this was one of the best lessons a skinny kid who others told was biting off more than she could chew learned. I went on to study Business, Finance, and Marketing at Florida State College. This prepared me for my next business venture that grew my acumen for business development and education, which led to each business thereafter being more successful than the last.

In 2017 my journey shifted to real estate where I quickly entered the illustrious top 20 percent of my market center. I have had the opportunity to serve on the Agent Leadership Council (ALC) for the past two years. It has been a highlight of my career to be a member of the Southwest Florida Region Social Equity Task Force (SETF). This has given me the platform to be a part of the conversation on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (D.E.I) in my workplace and community. It has also allowed me to continue my passion for teaching others on wealth building through homeownership.

One of my favorite song lyrics is, " I believe I'll run on and see what the end will be…" by The Mighty Clouds of Joy.

It speaks to my purpose to keep running this race called life, to enrich others along my journey so that at my end, the stain I leave will be so great it cannot be erased. But made brighter by those who pick up the torch after me!
