About Carol Holst
Carol Holst is based in the Los Angeles area and founded Postconsumers.com in 2010 to celebrate each person’s core values in our hypermaterialistic culture. Using humor and irony, Postconsumers is building a national brand without profit to help move society beyond addictive consumerism and toward the satisfaction of enough for today. The educational company offers a 30-minute how-to web course called the Get Satisfied Interactive Handbook, which Carol produced in cooperation with the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior.
Carol is also the editor of “Get Satisfied: How Twenty People Like You Found the Satisfaction of Enough” (Easton Studio Press). Available in paperback and ebook formats, it is filled with true accounts from diverse author perspectives concerning the health of people and the planet. All of Carol’s efforts in supporting Postconsumers and its writing/marketing team are driven by the epiphanic experiences she has had at the United Nations.
At the headshot age of 64, Carol works as a professional artists’ model at top art schools in Los Angeles as she has for many years, and in previous decades she founded The Learning Place preschool. Her degrees are in education and sociology. Carol adores her two grown daughters in the ultrafast lane, both born on her birthday five years apart. However, her lane isn’t all that slow.
