Perfection Detox for the Mindset of Midlife Success

Episode #527 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. 

In this interview episode, my guest shares her own journey through perfection detox. I think you’ll be able to relate. We’ve talked liver detox, electronic and digital detox, so why not perfection detox?

So, here we go… I think you’re gonna love it!

My Guest:

Petra Kolber is an Author, Speaker, DJ, Performance Coach, Podcast Host, and most recently a Digital Nomad. Actually, she will be traveling for the next two years as she writes her second book.

In August 2019, Petra released her first book, The Perfection Detox. It was recently translated into French and Spanish, and Arabic. She has over thirty years’ 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. In fact, she’s quite beloved in the fitness industry, so it’s an honor to have her here.

Petra is also a two-time cancer survivor. Because of it, she 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. 

Petra thinks that maybe in her sixties she will settle down and become a grown-up. Ironically, we so hope not!
