“Pauline Nguyen – Award Winning Author, highly sought after International Speaker and one of the most grounded Spiritual Entrepreneurs around the globe.” - The Huffington Post

Pauline is one of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs – but with difference. She is inspiration with substance. She teaches with warmth and humour, telling her own story of what can be achieved through key alignment of thoughts and intentions. She has a high-performing Western business background combined with an Eastern slant of spirituality.

Pauline is a best-selling author and award-winning businesswoman – and her achievements are all the more impressive for her having escaped Vietnam on a boat and survived a Thai refugee camp. She has overcome these adverse beginnings to transform her approach to success by re-engineering her beliefs, questioning the status quo and hacking cultural norms.

To become one of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs takes hard work, determination, inspiration and substance.  It also takes the courage to defy conventional wisdom and the tenacity to get back up again, no matter how many times life knocks you down.  Pauline has learned to reframe the events of her tumultuous childhood, and often describes her upbringing as her ‘training’.

Pauline became a master of her thoughts, behaviours and emotions and approached everything with an unshakable spirit. Her day-to-day professional life was in orbit around her life principles, and not the other way around. This self-actualisation has carried her to prosperity while running the awarded restaurant Red Lantern, (the most awarded Vietnamese restaurant in the world) and authoring bestseller, Secrets of the Red Lantern. Her unique philosophy also inspired her newest release, The Way of the Spiritual Entrepreneur – The 7 Secrets to Becoming Fearless, Stress Free and Unshakable in Business and in Life.

In 2012, Pauline and Red Lantern won the Australian Telstra Business Award for Medium Business.  But that is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Pauline’s achievements; her memoir, Secrets of the Red Lantern, has been critically acclaimed around the world and appeared in numerous bestseller lists. She holds a BA in Communications from the University of Technology, Sydney, and in 2008 won Newcomer Writer of the Year at the Australian Book Industry Awards.

Pauline has achieved outstanding success as an entrepreneur, author, businesswoman and acclaimed speaker, and also has the skills to connect with her audience and her clients in a profound way – she helps awaken and focus people to change their own story for a better future.  Pauline is proud to be represented by ODE Management who look after only 20 of the top ‘non celebrity’ speakers in the world.

Pauline is an original ‘Rare Bird’ – one of Australia’s top 50 influential female entrepreneurs – and is included in Blackwell and Hobday’s global recognition of 200 Women Who Will Change the Way You See the World.

Following on from her success with Secrets of the Red Lantern, Pauline has penned a new book, The Way of the Spiritual Entrepreneurthe 7 Secrets to Becoming Fearless, Stress Free and Unshakable in Business and in Life.  Through direct experience, she knows that ‘happiness’ alone won’t solve our business problems.  To be Fearless, Stress Free and Unshakable are more powerful traits.

Pauline describes The Way of the Spiritual Entrepreneur as a no bones, honest and forthright methodology of business, life and spiritual practice designed to disrupt standard ways of thinking, bringing the unconscious into the conscious and catapulting the reader into an optimistic mindset of abundance and possibility.

The Way of the Spiritual Entrepreneur is the recent winner of ‘Best Entrepreneurship and Small Business Book of the Year’ – 2019 Business Book of the Year Awards.

She believes that any person or organisation who follows The Way of The Spiritual Entrepreneur is destined to have a competitive advantage in business and in life.

Pauline’s unique life experiences have given her a distinctive insight into the minds of individuals and businesses alike, allowing her to pass on the invaluable skills of self-mastery, courage, resilience and grit. As Pauline says, ‘If we can learn the tools of self-mastery, we can better practice the art of influence with others.

When Pauline talks of commitment driving outcomes, people listen.
