Talks of imperfection - Ep.004 - Peta Milan

It's Episode 004 when we are reminded that managing wealth always comes with responsibility.

This time we are in Peta’s home garden in Colares, Portugal, during a bright September Saturday morning. Peta Milan explores her extraordinary path from growing up as the daughter of a middle-class family struggling to discover her own voice, the importance of perfectly random encounters and the sophisticated art of recognizing your own weaknesses with pure honesty.

Peta (b. 1977) is an Australian CEO and co-founder of JET Group, author, international speaker, LSE alumni and CEO and founder of venture studio Transcendent Media Capital, who has spent the first 20 years of her career as an entrepreneur specializing in start-ups across industries such as transportation, tourism, management consulting and corporate strategy, technology and media. 

“I remember being seven months pregnant with my eldest son. And I was 26 and the job that I had moved to Melbourne for hadn’t worked out and I remember sitting on the concrete floor of my friend’s house with nowhere to go, and I was really thinking that I had to move into a women’s shelter. And I had called my mum to ask for help and she said no. And I just gave myself 20 minutes to cry and then I needed to figure out what to do.” — Peta Milan

Talks of imperfection – Not your ordinary business podcast

Talks of imperfection is a new podcast series of intimately open diverse conversations where globally recognized leaders, founders, entrepreneurs and activists reveal their personal relationships with growth, collaboration, success and imperfection.

Season one features eight carefully curated guests coming from different backgrounds, cultures, languages and professions who all share the common goal of creating a more equal, more reasonable and increasingly sustainable future through their talent, network, vision and passion.

This is not your ordinary business podcast but a gentle platform for deeply meaningful conversations that redefines our views on doubt, failure and vulnerability and connects the blurring dots between smarter working habits and more balanced private life.

The show is in English only and hosted by Risto Kuulasmaa, an Amsterdam-based entrepreneur, wanna-be surfer and a life-long student of imperfection, and enabled by Edita Prima, the kindest Nordic tech company that orchestrates automated customer journeys to perfection.

“Life is perfect. How you relate to life creates all the imperfections. Nature is perfect and we are part of it, it is our minds that creates the separation. We create our subjective truths about perfection and imperfection and this is why talking about imperfections is so interesting.” — Risto Kuulasmaa
