The Paradigm Solution

HR & Team foundations 

Done For You

without the compliance headache?

Are you ready to confidently build the team you need to get back to the work you love...

 Attention trailblazers, innovators, and unapologetic entrepreneurs…


62% of small businesses don’t have any staff members.

Because finding, hiring, and managing the right employees is overwhelming.

There are a lot of steps to take, and there’s no real HR support out there for your online business’s unique needs.

So you’re left to depend on Google to figure out where to start. And it’s around the fourth page of search results when you realize you’re not going to find the personalized answer you’re looking for on a search engine. 

Not to mention the legal and financial considerations. Those feel like too much to wrap your already-stretched-too-thin brain around.

Payroll? HR Policies? Employee training? No thank you!

Did you know...

Then there are those limiting beliefs that rear their ugly heads at the mere thought of becoming someone’s boss:

“Is my business legit enough to have employees?”

“Will people think my vision is silly?”

“Who am I to be in charge of someone else’s job?”

“Would I even be a good manager?”

“Where would I even start in building company culture?

Hiring employees can feel like an insurmountable challenge on top of everything else you’re managing.

So you continue to outsource to independent contractors, because that feels simpler.

Relying on contractors isn’t a sustainable growth strategy for your business anymore.

Sure, working with freelancers is simpler at a certain stage in your entrepreneurial journey. It’s a great first step in delegating.

You’re beyond the first steps now.

Successful business owners like you require more than what contractors can offer. Why?

Because contractors aren’t bought into the mission and vision of your business. They’re juggling several client projects at a time. You’re not their only focus. Your deliverables are subject to their availability. They have their own set ways of doing things.

So instead of planning your next major revenue milestone, you’re:

Waking up at 3:15am in a cold sweat, wondering if your social media manager scheduled that Instagram post for tomorrow morning like she was supposed to. You promised yourself you wouldn’t open Planoly in the middle of the night anymore, but here you are.

Worrying so much about treating your contractors like employees (which you know is a big no-no!) that you’re compromising your needs to accommodate theirs. “My VA hasn’t scheduled my launch sequence emails to go out yet, so I guess I can just push out my course launch by a few weeks.” - you to yourself while adjusting your quarterly income goals yet again

Justifying your blurred boundaries because you believe they come with the territory of a contractor-client relationship.


You know this isn’t working for you,
but hiring employees feels like way too big of a problem to tackle on your own.

With the right support, transitioning from contractors to employees can be the seamless solution you need to feel in control of your business again.

You don't have to hold back your growth anymore.

We’ve been accustomed to think the way things were done in our 9-5 jobs is the way we have to do things as online business owners. But the truth is, corporate HR strategies don’t translate to the way we work and collaborate remotely.

Besides, you’re a disruptor. You left your corporate job to shake things up and do things differently, so why would you do HR and team management the corporate way? 

Through my client work with entrepreneurs like you, I’ve realized that business owners need real, personalized, and modern strategies for hiring and growth. 

Just because Google results haven’t caught up to the way you want to run your business doesn’t mean you need to squeeze yourself into a corporate box.

Kind Words

from Clients

Working with Paradigm was a truly integral process & experience for me & my business. HR was something I'd tried to figure out on my own by piecing it together (and I thought I'd done an okay job of it) but once I had multiple employees & contractors - all in different states - I knew I needed to call in the pros. In short, I can only guess how much Kira & her team saved me in fees and penalties by ensuring I was compliant with each state's laws and moving parts and telling me exactly how to do it all. Plus, they're just so fun to talk to, feel like friends, and are incredible listeners. 

This is a non-negotiable service for even small teams who care about doing things with excellence & having fun along the way. Book them upfront - you'll save yourself so much stress and wasted energy and feel so much more confident in your ability to lead & run your company well. 

- Kaitlyn Parker

Working with Kira & The Paradigm Team was truly incredible. I was embarking on the journey of hiring my first employee and felt SO overwhelmed, I had no idea where to start, and how to make it happen 
 When I met Kira, I knew immediately she was the person to help guide me through a process I had been feeling defeated by for months. She got the ball rolling from day one, and I left our first meeting feeling excited, empowered and like it was finally possible to make it all happen. Kira and her team worked efficiently, swiftly and made me feel their only client along the way. From beginning to end, the experience was 10/10. If you're wanting to scale your business and grow your team THIS is the way to do it, don't hesitate, just do it!

- Grace Blacksea

“Kira was a lifesaver!! Taking the step to hire my first actual employee vs working with contractors was a big one, and I knew I wanted to go through the process the right way. I also value my time and didn't want to spend it endlessly searching for answers or potentially making the wrong decisions because I was just guessing with what to do. Kira took that burden off my shoulders and made everything so easy. She was there to answer any questions that came up along the way - and allowed me to really feel at ease and confident going into this next phase growing my business."

- Kristin Richards (

Working with Paradigm was truly the best thing that I could have done to help me navigate hiring my first employee! It made me feel so much more prepared going into the hiring process. And more importantly, I feel like it showed my employee how much I care about them! If I had tried to do all of this myself, I'm sure it would have been messy, unorganized and not at all how I want my employees to view me as a boss. But with Paradigm, I was able to onboard my employee in a way that was streamlined, welcoming and made me feel like a legit boss. Also the people at Paradigm are just a joy to talk to :) I never thought I would call HR "fun", but they make it fun!

- Abbey McGrew (@wayfarerdesign)

Kira is ABSOLUTELY amazing!!! I had so much fear and lack of know how with hiring employees. It was such a new world to me. An employee handbook? How do I even? 

Kira made it seem not so scary with her positive and fun personality. Even more so being a perfect resource of all things HR. She took so many things off my hands that would have taken me months to figure out on my own! If she didn’t know something she would always do her research, which was very reassuring. She was consistently proactive and communicative. You can really feel she genuinely cares about you and helping you on your path as a business owner. 

I highly recommend Kira to anyone stepping into their “CEO Role.” Kira is the HR QUEEN! 

- Dana Shular (@ascendtogether)

Kira helped me onboard two employees quickly after a sub-par experience trying to do it with another HR partner.

Kira's positive energy and no-nonsense approach made black-hole of the hiring process feel effortless and easy to understand. I would definitely work with Kira when I hire in the future.

- Sarah Doody (@sarahdoody)

I reached out to Kira as soon as I knew I was going to be bringing on employees. I wasn't new to having a team, as I had over a dozen contractors working for me, but I was very new to having employees (and I was planning to jump right in by bringing on 3 right at the start). The thought of it all was overwhelming and I was terrified that I'd miss something important. Kira and her team held my hand through the entire process and I felt unbelievably supported! Now I get to sit back and celebrate my growing team (and company) and I know I have access to them in the future as I continue to expand. 

-Jordan Schanda King
Easy Scaling

I just didn't know what I needed when it came to hiring and Kira totally filled that gap for me 
and then some. Working with Kira really got me to think about the future of the business and where we're going and who we need to hire to get there. It’s way, way more than just policies and paperwork.

 it's been a huge weight lifted off of me as the CEO. And it's just a relief knowing I have them to rely on. I would not be at this stage without you guys. I'd still be sitting here thinking… I should hire someone. I appreciate it.

- Shannon Mattern (@shannonlmattern)

“Kira is the HR pro I never knew I needed (not to mention my clients!) She demystifies everything around HR, the details/paperwork around hiring employees, and creates policies and handbooks that make onboarding a breeze - and that feel so aligned with my company culture and what I want (and didn't even realize I wanted). I feel so seen by Kira and way more confident about having employees on my team. I'm really proud of the company policies she created specifically for me and my company's vision.”

- Meg Baker (@Megkco)

Paradigm was the best investment I've made in my business to date. Not only did they get me onboarded right as I was making my first hire, but they also saw me through FOUR more hires. It was so much easier for me because I had access to compliance help, they made orientation easy, and it was all easily accessible through their portal and Slack. I never felt like I had to WORK to work with them, which is huge. If you're in the process of hiring and want to do it right, I can't recommend Paradigm enough.

-Latasha Doyler

Working with Paradigm Consulting was a business game changer! I was scared to grow a team and hire employees since it just seemed so overwhelming. I had no experience in HR, and I didn’t want to spend hours trying to find the answers and hoping that I was doing it right.

As soon as I started working with Kira and her team, I felt the weight come off my shoulders. They made every step so clear, and I went from overwhelmed to excited! They answered all my questions and helped me feel at ease with the process. My team also loved the onboarding process and raved about how organized we were and how comprehensive our Handbook was. I went from having no systems in place to one that I can rely on for years to come!

- Adrienna M. | CEO, Ava And The Bee

Paradigm genuinely cares about your team, values, culture and truly wants to help you grow authentically. She makes HR fun and more simple than you thought it could be. 

With Kira and her team's help, we've been able to hire our very first employee with such confidence. She led the way to help us expand our team with ease and we've experienced incredible growth since then! Kira is such a pleasure to work with, and we would do her intensive a MILLION times over again...we highly recommend working with her in an intensive!

-Dani Silber, Coming Out Happy @comingouthappy

Live, laugh, loved this experience. We hired 4 employees and now have capacity to do grow our client work by 10-20 times under our current team.

Most importantly, everyone is a great cultural fit and excited to grow with us, a win for me, a win for our team, and a win for our current and future clients.

- Braden Drake

Kira and her team made HR so much easier! She made all the paperwork, policies, job descriptions, and hiring less stressful than what I was doing before on my own.

 I LOVE that I now have a solid team and a plan to grow my team to take my business to the next level.

This may sound crazy, but I actually enjoy anxiety-inducing HR numbers and alphabet soups. 

1099s, W2s, FMLA, FLSA? My favorite!
