When you’re the boss, and especially if you’re just starting out, you’re in charge of ~every~ little thing. You’re responsible for organizing + answering all your emails, scheduling all your appts., writing client proposals + contracts, sending out invoices, handling your biz bookkeeping— and we haven’t even gotten to the client work.

The problem with perfectionism is it NEVER. STOPS. DEMANDING. MORE. I struggled for so long under the weight of that bad boy, and let me tell you, it was NOT pretty. So when I finally got to the point where I was ready to (really, when I needed to) let go of my own perfectionism, I was so relieved to learn the hidden value of imperfections + flaws. Focusing on progress over perfection gave me my life back.

Everywhere you turn, there’s some guru pushing you to follow their tried + true formula, claiming “if you don’t do this, you won’t get where you want to go.” We’re told on a daily basis that there’s a game-plan we gotta stick to if we’re serious about finding the right clients, getting fully booked out, or scaling our biz. I know firsthand how overwhelming the heaps + heaps of unsolicited advice can get, so I thought I’d set the record straight.
