Hey Moxie Movers! Welcome back to another empowering episode of the Moxie Movement podcast. I'm your host, Sarah Greener, and today in Episode 17, we're diving deep into a topic close to my heart and, I bet, yours too.

πŸŽ™οΈ In This Episode:

We're exploring the entangling vines of perfectionism and how it's been a personal journey for me – one that I'm still navigating. I share a recent experience that highlights my ongoing battle with perfectionism and how I'm learning to balance it with the demands of being a business owner, a mom, a wife, and more. This episode is a candid conversation about giving yourself grace while remaining consistent in your business.

πŸš€ Why This Matters:

Perfectionism can be a business's silent roadblock. It's that nagging voice telling you it's not good enough or you're not working hard enough. We address why striving for perfection can lead to stagnation and how embracing progress, even if imperfect, is the real game-changer.

✨ Key Takeaways:

  • Progress over perfection: Why this mantra wins every time.
  • The illusion of the perfect moment and how it holds us back.
  • Setting realistic deadlines to combat perfectionist tendencies.
  • Embracing the beauty of imperfection in your business journey.
