Need a perfection detox? Or have you shed that skin already? No matter where you are, this message resonates with women over 50. Even younger women are tired of being tired in pursuit of something they know they can never have, be, or enjoy. 


My Guest:

On this episode shares her wisdom in perfection detox.

Petra is an Author, Speaker, DJ, Performance Coach, Podcast Host, and more recently a Digital Nomad. 

In August 2019, Petra released her first book, The Perfection Detox which was recently translated into French and Spanish, and Arabic.

She has over thirty years of experience in the fitness industry, with best selling workout videos, a television show, and has been honored to receive some of the most prestigious accolades in that arena, 

Petra is a two-time cancer survivor and is passionate about waking people up to the precious gift of time. Her current work is helping women in transition look at their future through the lens of possibility, so they create the life of their dreams versus leaving their life with regret. 

She will be traveling for the next two years as she writes her second book and thinks that maybe in her sixties she will settle down and become a grown-up.
