E44: How to overcome perfectionism and be a mentor to your creative brain

While most of us procrastinate from time to time, creatives often take procrastination to a whole new level and turn it into perfectionism.  Perfectionism, in turn, drives us mad and makes us feel incomplete, never quite good enough, and robs us of any joy creativity may bring. Sound familiar?

This is the topic of this episode and who better to speak to than Deborah Taylor – a certified hypnotherapist who is an expert in working with entrepreneurs and helping them overcome procrastination and perfectionism.
