Petra is a coach and mentor for creatives who are ready to find the courage to forge their own path and take action with confidence.
After years of living in the shadow of the past, she struggled to find her place in this world. When her youngest was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder, she realized she needed to take a good look at herself, how she was showing up in this world and knew she was not who she was meant to be.She learned the past does not create the future and that she’d have to reinvent herself, rewrite the stories she was telling everyone (especially herself) and start taking action towards what she wanted to create.
Petra is a multi-passionate creative with a handmade business, and transformational life coach that helps women rise above their personal story so they can move through frustration and transform themselves and their lives. Petra’s expertise includes helping her clients overcome self-doubt and building the confidence they need to succeed.
A Story of Overcoming
Petra’s practice has been shaped by her own story. Growing up in foster care since the age of 2 and she has overcome many challenges and adversities despite the odds, always believing in finding a dream that leaves her fulfilled by living her life according to her own rules.
With a vision of owning her own business, 10 years ago Petra created her first business, Hippie’s Creations, now Three Times Chaos. Being very much a DIY person, she learned how to set up a blog and manage her social media, letting out her geeky side and freelance her tech skills. But after, her son was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder at the age of 4, and life became a 24-hour crisis, leaving his life in limbo until he underwent his third liver transplant.
Time for a Shift
Petra realized that life is too short and she needed to stop talking about her dream of helping others and start taking action. She became trained in mental health counseling but realized that in order to be present for her son’s medical needs and her own dream, that helping transform the life of others was her passion.
Petra uses what she has learned through life and her training to take a dream and turn it into reality and does this with her third business, Petra Monaco – Transformational Life Coach.
Petra believes that everyone deserves a shot at creating freedom however they envision it and feels strong about the fact that you don’t need a sob story to do so. She is helping women like herself to move forward and overcome the challenges in making their own dreams real through her business, one-on-one coaching. She has written three books and continues to create her own freedom pursuing her own dreams.
