About Pauline Bright…
I’m the MD of Bright Business, a Business Strategist, Coach and Mentor.
My business coaching programs are not cookie-cutter solutions – I dig deep to really get to know you and your business then tailor a structured program for your business to get the very best from YOU, your team and your business to achieve your goals and future vision.
I particularly like to work with Change Makers – business owners who can learn something, put it into action immediately and see it come to fruition before your competition even knows what’s going on.
Working together, I help you make significant changes to your business so it becomes more enjoyable, more profitable, more exciting and engaging and, usually, way beyond what you can currently imagine.
I believe owning a business should give you a BETTER life – not suck the life out of you!
The day to day REALITY of running your business sometimes falls short of your VISION; you become overwhelmed and you’re not quite sure that what you’re doing is the right thing.
It’s too easy to get “busy” and not do what you know you should do – the projects you would love to get around to “one day” – well you’ll actually DO those things and get the benefits – money, clients, growth, organisation, structure, education…
…all of that without the sleepless nights stress and worry!
I get GREAT results with…
- Growing you and your business to true potential
- Refining and improving it so it runs smoothly
- Marketing to attract your ideal clients
- Selling – without feeling icky and dirty
- Time management to get the important things done
- Planning and Systems – even if you’re allergic to it.
- Money and Numbers because it’s the lifeblood of your business
- Attracting dedicated, productive team members who can take some of your load
- Enjoying your business more – you’ll be excited to be there!
I’m not fluffy or “airy-fairy” – I have immense knowledge and passion for my work and my clients. I LOVE seeing them break through barriers using skills they didn’t know they had!
We go deep on the money side of your business – it MUST make you an income that is significantly better than a wage and substantial profit so that you have choices about how your business develops.
How to get started
This is not generic business advice – it is coaching mentoring and training tailored to suit YOUR business based on 14 years of coaching hundreds of businesses and owning 11 of my own businesses.
I collaborate with other trusted professional experts like accountants, lawyers, financial advisers, web designers, copywriters etc – everything you need for your business. Occasionally we develop and run courses together that you won’t find in any university. We believe in practical hands-on learning, applied immediately to your business to get results.
Delivery of my programs is in a variety of formats: 1 to 1 mentoring, team and group programs and workshops, online education, ebooks and courses.
Working with me one to one
I take on a small handful of private clients each year. We work very closely together to dive deep into your business. Before we work together in my one to one program I want to speak with you personally to find out what you’ve got going on. We need to clarify your expectations and make sure we’re a good fit. I want to make sure you get what you pay for… and then some!
If you’d like to find out we can work together one to one please email email@example.com and we’ll set up a time to talk.
A bit more about me…
I’m a serial business owner – I’ve been at the coal-face in my own businesses for over 35 years. I love business. I’ve had businesses in retail, manufacturing and wholesale, training, consulting and designing.
Working as a designer in Advertising for 25 years I developed a passion for marketing and intense curiosity about what makes people buy.
My dad was a Life Insurance Salesman who sold over $100million in his career pre 1980s. He was my first mentor. Amongst many things, he taught me about Elegant Selling – a way of getting rid of dirty icky feelings about sales and developing relationships and a system so that everyone gets what they want.
Mahatma Gandhi said it beautifully “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. It will hold you to your highest standards. I “eat my own cooking” and continue to be mentored and coached to reach my own potential.
As a Business coach and mentor since 2005 I’ve had outstanding success – my clients become more savvy business people, their businesses blossom – often beyond their expectations, they win awards and so do I – lots of them – Local, National and International.
I have a trusted network of experts that I collaborate with; Accountants, Marketing people, Financial Advisers, Lawyers and HR Consultants and more.

Clients We Have Worked With
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Ellen Smith, Bayshore Naturopathics
My name is Ellen from Bayshore Naturopathics.
People close to me have commented on how much I have grown, both in business and personally since I have been working with Pauline Bright as my business coach – and it started in month one.
Prior to working with Pauline I didn’t have any real direction with my business, and going to work was like Groundhog Day for me. I was quite burnt out and feeling stale. I was making a living but I didn’t have a lot of understanding regarding the “numbers” – so I felt out of control of my finances.
We’ve worked together over the last couple of years in many areas of my business; from effective
marketing, to organizing myself, my time and my staff, she has helped me with my self-belief and self-
confidence. Numbers no longer phase me, I can look at my profit and loss statements to better understand what’s going on in my business and make decisions based on real data. We’ve also introduced new exciting programs that will take my business to a new level and give me more time to do the work I love.
Pauline has the ability to become a part of your business – to get inside it and see what’s possible, and to help you make positive changes. I’d highly recommend her.”
I’ve had the absolute pleasure of working with Pauline recently, who provided business coaching/strategy advice.
Pauline has the fabulous ability to quickly understand the essence of what a business and the owner/founder is all about, and importantly keeping them true to each other. Pauline gives simple and practical ideas and advice that instantly get to the heart of the matter or issue. Her practical advice makes sense, gives clarity and clear steps on how to move forward, while demonstrating grace, deep insight, wisdom and impeccable professionalism. She is filled with passion and empathy, while offering sound business recommendations. In my experience, a unique combination.
I highly recommend Pauline to anyone wanting to move their business to the next level and build a strong foundation for success at the same time. Thanks very much Pauline, your work is invaluable.
“I have just had the best thing happen to me in my business. I had my first session with Pauline. It is unbelievable how much she can pack into a 2 hour session and how much clearer and easier it already seems.
Pauline listens and picks out the feasible from among the many ideas in my scattered creative brain and suggests the best ways of implementation.
I am aware that I know photography well but I have minimal knowledge of building a business, so I need to learn and I want to learn from the best. From the few workshops I attended with her I knew she was the coach for me; she understands creatives but is also capable of kicking me into motion.
I love that Pauline is a fast thinker and always very spot on, she captures the essence and removes the unnecessary fluff, bringing you to realise the bottom line. Thanks to her, I am now even starting to love the money side of my business!”
Perth Personality Photographer
“Pauline is an absolute gem in the world of business coaching!
I tested out other coaches before Pauline, but what I found in Pauline was something unique, insightful, relevant and to the point!
Pauline doesn’t mess around with generic coaching ideas. Her extensive business experience gives you real hands on insight and solutions to get the results you want. She gets right down the core of why you are in business, so you can design the business you want.”
“From the first session with Pauline Bright, coaching has been amazing.
Prior to coaching, I felt my business had untapped potential but didn’t have the skills or knowledge to develop it.
Now I have so much more than I bargained for. I haven’t felt this excited and enthusiastic about my business for a long time. The skills and knowledge I’m gaining are helping me, my business and my employees for years to come. Her knowledge and passion for business success is pure inspiration.
She takes everything I dream of being able to do and turns it into reality. Pauline has given me the tools to help my business grow, develop structure and use my time in more appropriate ways.
If I had to say one word about Pauline it would be ‘Priceless’.”
The Teaching Hub, Mandurah
Jennifer Rose Bryant
Managing Director at Business Women Australia
“Pauline is a passionate business coach and her values and ethics ensure your business aligns with what you need in order to grow.
Pauline identifies and actions the necessary strategies for you to implement to make positive changes.
Working with Pauline as a mentor, coach and business advisor is a privilege.
Pauline is highly recommended and definitely gets results!”
“I’ve just attended Pauline’s Women in Business Master Class. It was mind-blowing! It was one of the best 3-hour sessions that I have spent in a long time. Pauline is so knowledgeable about her stuff and I didn’t know what I didn’t know! Now I’m going to go home and try to put it into practice and watch my business fly. Thank you so much Pauline and I really enjoyed it!”
Neil Reveler, Managing Director STEWART’S AT BROOKLEIGH
“Apart from the financial achievements we now have a committed team that are passionate about their workplace and their goals. Team training days with Pauline have become a much looked forward to event at Brookleigh.”
“On a personal level I feel that I have grown and developed in ways greater than I would have ever hoped for…. Pauline showed me the tools to organise myself and my life. I now work on my business and achieve what I could only dream of for so many years.”
“Pauline is not only my coach but has become a constant source of inspiration. As a creative person myself, I have found Pauline immensely helpful in directing my strengths to successful conclusions for both my business and myself.”
“I mostly admire Pauline’s ability to adapt her training methods to suit her clients.”
Nikki Brooks, Director STEWART CORPORATE PTY LTD STEWART’S @ BROOKLEIGH PTY LTD BROOKLEIGH EQUESTRIAN PTY LTD HEALTH & SPA AT BROOKLEIGH
“Pauline coaches with integrity, intuition and intelligence.”
“Since Brookleigh Estate management team has been under the tuition of Pauline major changes have occurred on the property all positive and all as a direct result of coaching. One business has gone from a negative to positive bottom line. Another business has redirected its energies and services to a simpler format and also become profitable in the 3 months it has been running.”
“Our focus of coaching has now moved from management of businesses to the management of major events.”
“Pauline’s ongoing coaching is invaluable to our companies as she encourages us to work “on” the business growth, when its always so easy to get caught up working “in” the business!”
Veronica Smith DONNABELLA BRIDAL COUTURE AND ALL FORMALS
“Pauline has provided me with an opportunity to develop the leadership skills that are essential to the growth of my businesses.”
“The knowledge and skills acquired from a variety of programs on offer has allowed me to set achievable goals that my team can work toward every day. Consequently, our businesses have celebrated increases in turnover and profit that were inconceivable prior to investing in the Business Coach program.”
“Thank you so much for your support, encouragement and butt kicking this year! I have really enjoyed getting to know you better and I couldn’t have asked for a more dedicated mentor in my life.”
Susanne & Tyler Crosbie MY REFLECTIONS
“We had a major change in mindset from hating the business to loving it and committed to do whatever it takes.”
“Our biggest challenges have been without a doubt, mindset. We were not aligned as business owners and there was little to no vision of what could be. We both knew something had to change or we would wind up being a statistic of business failure.”
“Changing our mindset around team has ultimately produced the greatest benefit to our business. More than anything we have adopted the principle that Pauline taught us of ‘There is a line and that we can choose to be above or below it’. We have worked tirelessly on our systems and the effect is massive results in our turnover and growth.”
Jan Ford Real Estate Port Hedland
“I am living the life I planned for a long time… a long time ago, we wrote this out…and now it is happening. Thanks for great inspiration and support Coach….”
“What a great session last week, yes it was oresome (sic) for all of us. Thank you so much for coming and seeing in town what we see. It is encouraging to have help and guidance in business and in life…”
“We’ve had a great week already. Last coaching session with the girls was oresome, and it kept getting better…”
“The girls are setting and reaching their targets and are now reaching for their stretch targets”

Since that time she has been instrumental in helping us to make our business more profitable & develop greater time flexibility for us as owners. We endorse the strong support and constant “above the line” approach that Pauline practices. Since having Pauline as our coach, we have a clearer direction for goals which is contributing to a more positive balance between business and family.”
Pryority Office Management Services
“Thank you Pauline for a lovely morning. It was very informative and, myself being a bookkeeper coming from a bookkeeping background, even I’ve taken away some information that’s relevant to not only bookkeeping but that I can also use in my own business. So thank you again, it was excellent!”
Visionary Entrepreneur, Business Mentor, Speaker, Trainer, Author, Instrument for Change

“It’s so much more energising to look forward rather than focus on the problems. (take-away!).
We are all starting to say…What would Pauline say? We’re really loving working with you. You bring order to our thinking, take away the stress and replace it with a renewed excitement and vision forward.”
