Paula Kramer, Professional Speaker

You can’t see the forest for the trees.

Paula Kramer can see both the forest and the trees. Two life situations frequently forced Paula to survive outside the forest.

When Paula was a very young child, her mother tried to kill her twice. Paula spent her childhood learning and developing strategies to stay alive.

When Paula was 12 years old, a boy in school pulled her chair out from under her. Paula landed hard on her tailbone, injuring her spine. Medical professionals misdiagnosed Paula’s injury for 33 years. Sitting and standing normally became increasingly painful. Paula spent decades learning and developing strategies to survive and thrive.

Paula’s outside view of the forest helps her see what people inside the forest cannot see — the strategies that most effectively create success. Resource Rock Star Paula Kramer combined the best of the strategies she learned with the best of the strategies she developed into free online resources. Use these resources to develop your own unique strategies for success among the trees, included success you never expected.

Paula is a former Toastmaster.

Words With Wallop:
The Easy Way To Change The World

The easy way to change the world is to give people positive identities. With positive identities, people change their own worlds by making positive choices. Each individual positive choice added to other individual positive choices combine to increase success, safety, and peace. Paula Kramer has real world examples to prove that words with wallop can reduce prejudice, homelessness, suicide rates, crime, terrorism, and ease the effects of child abuse.

Paula uses examples from her own life to show how positive identities gave her what she needed to walk away from wrong choices and walk toward positive choices.

Words with wallop examples range between one word and two sentences. How long does it take you to say two sentences? Two sentences repeated daily gave one man what he needed to choose a positive life for himself.

Words with wallop are most effective when they satisfy individual needs. Resource Rock Star Paula Kramer provides a wealth of free online resources to help you identify which needs to satisfy with one word, two words, one sentence, two sentences. The easy way to change the world.

Other online resources include more positive identity examples, citations for examples in the presentation, and more information to help you change the world.


Paula will add new examples of positive and negative words with wallop at the beginning of each month if she has found examples during the previous month. Each January, Paula will start new files for each.
