Paula Grieco is an entrepreneur, writer, and mama who has a long-standing passion for girls’ development and empowerment.
She is co-author of Take 5 for Your Dreams, a book of the What’s Your Brave project. Take 5 for Your Dreams was written especially for preteen and teen girls and provides more than 90 five-minute daily exercises designed to inspire girls to believe in their potential and break the idea of dreaming big into easy, doable daily steps.
Over the last several years, she has conducted research on and interviews with girls and young women ages 13 to 23 as part of What’s Your Brave. What’s Your Brave, co-founded by Paula and Liz McHutcheon, is a writing and media project dedicated to inspiring girls to be brave, dream big, and take bold action, by providing resources to parents and their daughters.
Paula’s professional experience includes several years as a technology executive where she played key leadership roles in the high growth of start-up firms before founding her own business strategy and web technology firm in 1999. She has also served on several nonprofits committed to improving girls’ lives worldwide including Made by Survivors, an anti-slavery organization. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, her daughter and son (aka two resident experts on childhood and adolescence), and their dog Henry.
