7 things I've learned from helping my clients ditch perfect + take action on their creative ideas

What’s holding you back from doing the work to overcome your perfectionism and, finally, take action on your big creative ideas?

Ever since launching my 1-on-1 coaching program, I’ve been so lucky to have worked with dozens of creative women in helping them go from stressed-out perfectionist to recovering perfectionist, from procrastination, self-doubt + overwhelm to imperfect action-takers.

Having a backstage pass to so many transformations in my clients’ creative work (and personal lives, too!), has taught me a thing or two about raising your hand + saying yes to doing the scary thing.

Mindset blocks, hesitations, not feeling good enough or like you don’t have what it takes, wanting to backtrack… I’ve seen it all. And guess what? Everybody feels this way.

Feeling this way is not a sign to quit or to not invest in yourself. In fact, feeling this way is how you KNOW you’ve taken the right step. Because saying hell-to-the-no to your perfectionism is supposed to scare the hell out of you.

You’ve been carrying around your perfectionism for years. It’s been your trusted companion, your go-to survival mechanism, the devil you know. If overcoming perfectionism was easy, you’d done so already.

But trust me, you’ve got what it takes. You can do this. Find strength in the women who’ve gone through the process before you. If they can do it, so can you.

So, without further adieu, here’s what I've learned from helping my clients (brave women just like you and me!) overcome their perfectionism + take action on their big creative ideas.

What to look for in a perfectionism coach + 3 red flags to avoid

How do I know if I’ve found a great, trust-worthy coach? What do I need to look out for? And what do I need to avoid when choosing a coach?

These are important questions to ask yourself, when you’re considering working with a coach.

Online coaching hasn’t been around for long. Perfectionism coaching is a new field altogether.

So I definitely understand that it can be hard to figure out exactly what you need to look for and the red flags to avoid when choosing a coach.

A little while ago, I was looking to buy a new couch. (And feeling like a real adult!)

After some research I learned that a good quality couch has a solid wood frame and reinforced corners. As a couch-buying newbie I was clueless. I seriously appreciated the manufacturer explaining what to look for and then linking me straight to some couches that fit those criteria. They informed me and made me an educated buyer, so much so that I was confident with my purchase.

This blog post is about to do the same for you. Not on the topic of couches of course, but when it comes to looking for + finding a great coach to work with.

Let’s dig in.

Introducing… Ditch Perfect + Take Action: my 4-week coaching program for online creatives

You have a big idea for your business; so big that it makes your heart skip a beat thinking about it.

But the mere thought of making it a reality scares you BIG time.

You know the idea I mean: the one that follows you around everywhere you go (even in the shower), the one you just CAN’T stop thinking about, the one that means more to you than all the other ideas combined.

It’s big, this idea. Definitely big enough for you to feel beyond scared and overwhelmed about it. It feels impossible to tackle on your own.

You wonder, “Can I do this? And where do I even begin?”
