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.
