Apr 25, 2021

How awesome would it be to hear two women who literally started a business called “Eff Perfect” sound off on what it takes to flip the bird to “Perfection”? Pretty amazing, amiright? Well, you are in luck, my friend.

In this week’s show, I am thrilled to dial-up an expert, well, two actually, on the subject of the constant pull to be perfect. Ashley Looker and Jenna Teague (of Eff Perfect fame) join me to discuss the many ways perfectionism shows up in our lives (hint: there’s something here for the people-pleasers), how to move through your perfectionism triggers, and how to celebrate this part of you that strives for excellence. 

Have you ever wondered if perfectionism was actually a good thing? Like, didn’t that get you through college and shit-ton of tough job interviews? Perhaps it’s the way you’ve stood out from the rest or identified yourself up until this point… who would you be without it!? Jenna + Ashley sound off on these concepts, how perfectionism can be a sneaky bitch, and their favorite tool to stop your perfectionism dead in its tracks.
