If you are in need ofÂ sound advice on how toÂ live a better life, thenÂ Patricia Rivera is the lady to talk to.Â Â A Personal EmpowermentÂ Coach, Patricia has over 15 yearsÂ experience as a presenter, coach, and educator to a wide range of audiences.Â Â Her clients have used words such as savvy, powerful, and enlightening to describe her.Â Â PatriciaÂ hasÂ co-authored three self-help books: A Journey Within: Self Discovery for Women, Raising African-AmericanÂ Boys, and Life Skills for African American Women. AlthoughÂ herÂ inspirational messages have touchedÂ youth, corporations, non-profit organizations, and individual clients,Â Patricia’sÂ main focus is on the empowerment of women.
Originally from New York, PatriciaÂ currently resides in Denver,Â Colorado with her husband.Â Â She is the co-host of an amazingÂ weeklyÂ internet radio show called Reinvent U One Talk A Time,Â which airs onÂ Wednesdays at 5pm EST.Â The show plays host toÂ almost 5,000Â listeners including downloads.Â The shows mission is to promoteÂ personal development byÂ building a place where ALL women can come together as one, to educate, support, and inspire one another.
Out of her passion for helping women live their lives to the fullest, Patricia authored her own personal blog called Why Do We Settle? as a fun way to express her thoughts and receive intelligent feedback from her readers.Â Hold on, her passion doesn’t end there.Â Patricia volunteers for the Dress for Success organization, a 501(c)(3) non profit that promotes theÂ economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.Â In addition, Patricia has assisted with various youth organizations over the years, received acknowledgement from the Mayor’s office for her help in the Colorado school district, andÂ wasÂ honored byÂ Toastmasters.Â Currently she isÂ working on the Denver team ofÂ NationalÂ Women’s Day, anÂ event that brings together 1 million women all over the world.
RegardlessÂ of the manyÂ positive connections she has made with other professionalÂ women, Patricia isÂ still alwaysÂ excitedÂ to see the bonds that areÂ formed servingÂ as one powerful source.Â She sees herself as the “biggest supporter of allÂ women doing amazing things.”Â Her own life is more enriched as a result of paying it forward to the next woman.Â Â As ourÂ chat regretfully came to a close,Â I asked PatriciaÂ if she hasÂ anyÂ upcoming projects.Â Â She smiled and replied, “Too many to mention, but watch out, my best is yet to come.”Â Personally, I can’t wait to see what she has in store.Â We need more positive and proactive women like Patricia making strides to help other women.Â She isÂ without aÂ doubtÂ the epitome of a “Bronze woman.”
