hey there


You may have heard the common phrase that says, “Done is better than perfect.” 

In many ways, it holds a lot of truth.

When there’s something on our hearts or minds to start or do, it is generally better to take action rather than waiting around until everything is perfect to get started. If we try to wait until everything is “perfect,” we risk never actually taking action.

So, while the intent behind this phrase is good, and is generally true, I’m challenging you to think about this a little bit more critically when it comes to your craft and your work.

But if writing a national bestselling book taught me ANYTHING, it’s that really good art — and good work — takes time, discipline, diligence, perseverance, and prayer. It takes a commitment to excellence.

Then, a not-so-great experience with the dentist really challenged me to consider why applying the “done is better than perfect” mantra to all aspects of our work may not be wise, and a few key lessons we can all learn about the importance of diligence and excellence in our work, rather than rushed or careless action with the focus on simply getting things done.

More specifically, I cover 3 core lessons that I believe every ambitious, fast movin’ gal (like myself) needs to remember and apply every single time she puts her hand to something.

  1. Do it right the FIRST Time
  2. Don’t be so rushed that you compromise excellence
  3. Make honesty and integrity your focus

If you can do these three things, consistently and intentionally with whatever you do, whether you’re a dental hygienist, secretary, photographer, or six figure business owner, you’re not only going to earn the respect of your customers/clients or peers but I also believe you’ll work toward personal or professional goals with more purpose, and therefore, be more successful AND more satisfied with the process…even if it’s hard and even it’s not what you want to be doing long term.

I have a huge heart for helping other mamas (and future mamas to-be) naturally support their body, embrace their femininity, and make healthy swaps for their families in a way that works for them and glorifies God (zero perfection required)
