It happened. I got Covid-19 and had to be quarantined in a foreign country. Yep.  Thankfully that country was France and since I’m vaccinated and boosted I had mild symptoms but it was a bummer nonetheless. If you’re thinking of traveling and scared about what might happen if you get sick – don’t be afraid, just be prepared.

If you know me, you know I love to travel and you know I love Paris in particular.  I’ve been fortunate to visit many times so when my husband Jay and I couldn’t go during the pandemic I had a serious case of travel withdrawal.

So, if you want to get out there and “live your best life”, as Oprah would say, you have to push past your personal boundaries.

So I invited author, speaker, performance coach, podcast host, and DJ, Petra Kolber on my live-streaming show Inside Scoop, to chat about why it’s important (and never too late) to push past your personal boundaries.

Here are four ways to push past what’s holding you back.
