My life and practice have been shaped by my own story. Growing up in foster care since the age of 2 and I have 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 my own business, 10 years ago I created her first business, Hippie’s Creations. Being very much a DIY person, I learned how to set up a blog and manage my social media, letting out my geeky side and leading me to create my second business, Unusual Bits.
My 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
I realized that life is too short and I needed to stop talking about my dream of helping others and start taking action. I became trained in mental health counseling but realized that in order to be present for my son’s medical needs and my own dream, that helping transform the life of others was my passion. I use what I have learned through life and my training to take a dream and turn it into reality and do this with my third business, Petra Monaco – Transformational Life Coach.
I believe that everyone deserves a shot at creating freedom however they envision it. I help women like myself move forward and overcome the challenges in making their own dreams real through her business, one-on-one coaching. I have written three books and continue to create my own freedom pursuing my own dreams.
