How to Cure Perfectionism

How to Cure Perfectionism

August 6, 2019

Are you a self-proclaimed perfectionist? Then get ready for an episode that’s gonna blow your mind because I’m gonna share how you can STOP letting perfectionism hold you back! 🤯

That’s right, I said it. Perfectionism can actually prevent you from making a BIGGER impact with your biz!

Speaking as a recovering perfectionist, I know a thing or two about perfectionism getting in the way of your online business success.

I used to PRIDE myself on being a perfectionist … until I realized that this mindset was actually holding me back. 😱

I was using my perfectionism as an EXCUSE for why I should put off [insert scary thing here] for just a little bit longer. And let me tell ya … I wasn’t doing myself any favors with that mentality!

Once I kicked perfectionism to the curb, I was able to grow FASTER, help MORE people and ultimately make a MUCH bigger impact with my online biz 💪🏻

So if you’re trying to overcome perfectionism in order to keep your business moving forward then give this episode a listen! 🌟

How to Avoid Burnout as a High Achiever

How to Avoid Burnout as a High Achiever

July 23, 2019

Are you spinning out of control on the proverbial hamster wheel of work? Then this is the episode for you, my buttercup! 😊

Today I’m gonna share THREE specific tips to AVOID BURNOUT as a high achiever. 🌟

This is something I think is especially important with today’s “hustle and grind” mentality.

When you LOVE to work and you have super amazing, exciting goals you want to achieve it can be REAL hard to obtain true work-life balance. 🧘🏻‍♀️

ESPECIALLY if you’re an entrepreneur that works from home because there is literally NO separation from your home and office. 💻

But when you work yourself TOO HARD for TOO LONG you can end up burnt the EFF out. 😫 

And that’s not a productive or pleasant way to feel if you want to be in the entrepreneurial journey for the long haul!

Severe burnout actually happened to me back in the fall of 2016 after I’d been working myself into the ground for over 12 MONTHS. 💥 And out of nowhere I had a sudden and SEVERE panic attack from being totally burnt out.

I’m proud to report I came out on the other side with a renewed sense of energy (and perhaps a new unicorn onesie 🦄) and today I’m sharing the three tips I learned to combat stress and prevent burnout as high-achieving, work-loving, butt-kickin’ business lady. 🌈

Don’t forget to stay tuned until the end of the episode for the SPECIFIC action step you can take right now to keep the burnout at bay! 🎉
