When you are clear on your idea and the steps to take, you are ready for inspired action.

Hi, I’m Petra!

Dreamer, hippie gypsy soul spirit, author, entrepreneur, mother, confidence builder + action taker, coach and mentor to women. I help you take inspired action, bring your life to a new level of awesome and get into to the how of make it happen.

I believe that ideas and dreams come to us to bring them to life and that we need should do it in a way that feels good – even if it looks a wee bit crazy to other people.

I live in near the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia with my partner and soulmate, our three dogs and the last of the offspring. I swear, drink coffee, listen to loud music, sing off-key karaoke and do whatever I want to do because I can.

I’ve turned a lot of ideas and dreams into real things and I want nothing more than help you with yours!


If you are waiting for the perfect moment, this is it!
