This week Tara chats with bestselling author Iona Holloway about perfectionism. Iona talks about her own struggles with perfectionism and has a way of looking at it that we hadn't thought about before.

So it's not your usual perfectionism discussion about not doing everything to 110%. This is for those of you that are "hiding in plain sight" behind perfect achievement, a perfect image, perfect home, perfect career or perfect body, to help you show up and take up the space that the real you should be taking up. It's really interesting!

Iona can be found here if you'd like more information and the Amazon link to her book is here.
