EP174 Perfection Addiction – 5 Strategies to Cope

As highly ambitious women, striving to reach our goals, dreams, and meet the needs of our clients often leads us to striving for the near-impossible – perfection. Highly ambitious, professional women and female entrepreneurs often find themselves spending countless hours changing, tweaking, revising, and polishing our work – whether it’s that next blog post or the next big course we want to launch – before we finally put it out into the world.

This “perfection addiction” is a common issue for many new and experienced entrepreneurs as well as highly ambitious, successful professional women. Today, I want to share with you my 5 powerhouse strategies for coping with – and overcoming – the perfect addiction.


“Embrace the mantra that ‘done’ truly is better than ‘perfect’.”
