Paula McCoy: Standing at the Crossroads

Finally, it was a quiet day in the office of CEO and President of The North Carolina Minority Support Center, Paula McCoy. I was particularly struck by Paula’s humbling presence and her passion for helping communities succeed.

What a fascinating story! How often have you heard people talk about finding a mentor to coach you along the road to success or get the education to teach you how to be successful? Paula is the epitome of a leader who finds what she needs within the scope of her environment.

Imagine being born in a family of 13. Imagine having a child at an early age and returning to a home where no one knows your true passions. Imagine standing at the crossroads of one the biggest decisions of your life. What choices do you make when you’re standing at the crossroads? And how do you choose with power, passion, grace and dignity. Paula candidly shares how.

Early on, Paula learned the power being competitive. From being born into a large family to single motherhood to standing at the crossroads and making one of the most difficult decisions ever, Paula found ways to navigate success out of each and every moment. You will be inspired by her story of optimism, hope, and leadership.

Paula’s vision from an early age was about helping others realize their potential; but little did she know she was on a journey to helping “communities” realize their potential for success.

Sit back and enjoy this interview as Paula shares what she knows for sure and how self discovery is the key to being a great leader and finding a greater vision.
