As entrepreneurs, its not uncommon to deal with anxiety and perfectionism. We often think they are a part of our DNA - except they are NOT! We all deal with feeling like we want the world to see us at our best. But in a society where our highlight reel doesn’t always reflect our real reel, how do we navigate through our anxiety and perfectionism to show our authentic self to our audience?  In this episode, Monica Denais digs into how to reflect on our perfectionism to break free from our anxieties. She explains that anxiety often tells us “you have no control". Or there is nothing you can do to feel like you are in control". But she explains how to gain that control back!
