The Leaning Tower of Pisa, wasn’t supposed to be leaning, but if it were straight it probably wouldn’t be such a popular tourist attraction.
I’m a recovering perfectionist, which is probably why I know a thing or two about this topic.
I mean, I love producing beautiful videos, creating awesome programs, leading my international sisterhood and, frankly, doing things really well. …and I’m critical of what I produce at every step single step of the process.
Whether it’s a new video, or a new program, a livestream or a blog post.
