Episode #3: Perfectionism has a Purpose
In Episode #3 I’m taking on a pesky little thing called perfectionism. We live in a society that constantly tells us that perfection is the goal.

But the thing is, perfection is impossible. It’s not there for no reason, though. In this episode we’ll look at the purpose of perfectionism, and the 5 steps you can take to release it.
