Do you ever feel like dropping everything and getting away—maybe creating an easier, happier way of living and working? And if you can't actually do that, how can you get away and get more satisfied without going very far? Guest, author and current nomad, Petra Kolber helps us chart a course to a happier life, including dealing with perfectionism which blocks many of us from even trying to reach our goals. After the conversation, we take a relaxing two-minute getaway that doesn't cost a thing.

About Host Jordan Friedman
Jordan is known as The Stress Coach, a career path that likely started when one of the world’s largest brain tumors was discovered in his head at age 10. The resulting, nonstop stress continued through college until he reluctantly enrolled in a stress management class that led to much less stress, a degree in public health, a job as Columbia University’s health education director and now a career as a global stress management speaker, trainer and author. For 25 years, Jordan's been privileged to help and learn from 9/11 survivors, teachers, CEOs, police officers, incarcerated adults, students and lots of other stressed people who want to be more successful, get better grades, sleep easier and be healthier.
In 2004, Jordan founded The Stress Coach to provide innovative workshops, multimedia webinars, chill apps, online courses and more stress-relief opportunities. The Chill Factory podcast is Jordan's latest effort to bring stress relief and better health to the world.
