NICE TO MEET YOU

I'm Monica Packer

After riding the all-or-nothing pendulum swing for most of my life, everything changed when I chose PROGRESS over perfection.

About Progress started as a little challenge to myself to see if I could grow outside of perfectionism.

This challenge became a years-long experiment that changed every area of my life.

Along the way, I uncovered the truest model to sustainable personal development: it's progress made practical.

Through my podcast, courses, programs, and coaching, I am passionate about helping other women similarly change and grow in ways that stick.
