Paulette Ensign

The Tips Content Strategist

Paulette Ensign had no idea she would sell well over two million copies of her 16-page how-to tips booklet, 110 Ideas for Organizing Your Business Life when writing it in 1991. Or that it would be in multiple languages and formats without spending a penny on advertising. Nothing in her background prepared her for that other than the knowledge she gathered during her career as a Professional Organizing and Productivity Consultant–quite a change from her original degreed profession teaching string instruments in public elementary schools for a dozen years. Yet her can-do attitude prompted and supported those results.

As people wanted to learn her secrets for converting their knowledge into how-to tips-based information products, Paulette developed products and services as she, too, continued learning and exploring seemingly endless possibilities for using content as marketing tools, revenue streams, or both.


While becoming widely known for the tips booklet niche she created, technology was an ever-increasing presence, prompting more opportunities for subject matter experts rather than fewer ways to use their content. The scales started tipping toward more online, digital download delivery formats than printed, tangible versions. Or so it appeared. This actually expanded rather than shrank options, prompting the focus of on tips content development first and product development second.


Founder and The Tips Content Strategist at Tips Products International, which is the parent company of the wholly-owned subsidiary, Tips Products Publishing Agency, Paulette now has more than forty years’ experience with small and mid-size business owners, corporations, and professional associations in numerous industries, worldwide. She and her team look forward to traveling part of your journey with you and serving you as she continues to defy getting old while getting older.

  • "Excited My Imagination!"

    “Paulette Ensign and her team at Tips Products International helped me create a booklet, DARE to Fly – 52 Tips to Lift You High, as a companion piece to my full-length, bestseller book. This has immediately expanded my company’s product offerings. Paulette is calm, kind, and patient—it has been a pleasure to work with her. Furthermore, because she is such a dream, she excited my imagination about bulk sales. After creating the booklet, I was successful in getting a school district to invest in bulk sales for my book, If Caterpillars Can Fly, So Can, to give to all principals, guidance counselors, and school board presidents, as a means of disrupting teachers’ thinking and helping students to desire to learn. The check for $72,000 just arrived and to be honest, it feels amazing! Paulette, thank you for exciting my imagination and for sharing your years of experience.”

    - Alvin Day, Executive Director, Tamarac, FL
