Is Perfectionism Killing Your Sales?

Episode 26 Show Notes:

Do you feel like you do more for your clients than you do for yourself?

Are you a master at coaching others on growing their businesses, but when it comes to your own business, procrastination always gets in the way. Why do you tend to put yourself last?

Why do you believe that getting it done messy is okay for your clients, but that doing the same for yourself is unacceptable?

Relatable? Well then, you may be surprised to realize that you just might be a secret perfectionist.

This is an extremely personal topic for me because I recently had to go through this exact realization. I never considered myself a “perfectionist” until my coach called me right out on it, and once I stopped to look around at my business, I realized, “Gosh, she’s 100% right!”

Fast forward to today, and I’m here to tell you that productive beats perfect. Always.

It’s time to put a stop to your perfectionism because it’s totally sabotaging your business and, by extension, hurting your sales.
