Having a supportive community available to address your questions, provide feedback on creative projects, and offer guidance with strategies, mindset, and tool utilization is just the thing you need sometimes. It helps reduce the amount of potential obstacles you may face and helps. you to not stay stuck.

This is a community because people that rise together, shine together.

This is ongoing support to help you have clarity about your goals, reduce the overwhelm, and stay focused on what you want to achieve with someone who has and continues to walk the same path and can answer the questions when you:

What other’s have said

Petra really helped me understand that it’s actually perfectly normal to be in a complex situation and to have a multi-layered approach to finding a solution to what I’m going through. I think I was looking for an “either-or”, and when doing so, when I would get frustrated,  I would throw everything out the window. Now when I feel a little overwhelmed, I breathe and realize that I’m taking the right steps, and eventually, things will be more streamlined. You really helped me to feel not alone and normal in my own right.

Petra Monaco is pure brilliance & heart. Her patience & amazingness make her a clear beacon of hope.

My soul gravitates to people who care about others. What an honor it is to know this great woman.

Petra is a breakthrough coach. She opens up anything old and unneeded within you to help you jump and leap into all of who you are. She helps you dive deeply into the heart of things in order to discover your next steps. This in turn creates greater courage and realness that comes from within. I can’t thank her enough. I will of course stay in touch and connect with her should anything else come up.

A note from me with my thoughts, news, tips, lessons, successes, and shares from the community!

You have questions, I have answers!

Why is CLBA so cheap?

When I first started, I wished something was available to me that could fit within my budget. These days everyone charges so much that people just starting out are forgotten. 

I believe in creating financially accessible products! I’ve struggled for a long time and I know how hard it is to climb out of the trenches.  I want to help as many people as I can. Keeping the price low is what makes that possible.

What if I hate it?

If you don’t LOVE, let us know within 7 days and I’ll give you a full refund – no questions asked. CLBA is meant to be a long-term community + program. I am ready for you in CLBA but I only want you to join if you know you want to build a creative life. Even if you aren’t quite ready, I’ll help you get there. But, you have to want this life because it can get kinda crazy! If it’s not a HELL YES, it’s a no!

What type of results do you promise?

I don’t! The results you achieve will be a direct reflection of the work you have put in during your time at CLBA. I am accessible nearly every day of the year in our private community to answer your questions, give guidance and support. 

Hi, I', Petra

I grew up in foster care, am an immigrant, was homeless living in a country with zero support, and became a special needs parent, but guess what?

I refused to allow any of that to define me or hold me back. I put the work in (yes, even when I wanted to give up) and am now living my creative life with my partner of 18+ years. 

So here I am in a snapshot:

When you have a vision and a plan, you really CAN build a creative life in the evening hours before bed.

If you can run a family, you already have the essential capabilities to set out to run your life the way you want to! 

When you are ready to receive value for their skills – your creations, your experience and your time have value.
