with host artist Miriam Schulman
What a FASCINATING this discussion was!! It’s also incredibly important for each of us. We’re discussing letting go of perfectionism.
I am so excited to welcome therapist Rebecca Bass-Ching back to The Inspiration Place Podcast! Rebecca is a certified Daring Way facilitator, which focuses on the research of Brene Brown. Rebecca was also previously a guest on episode #6, when we talked about Overcoming Imposter Syndrome. It’s still one of the most popular and talked about episodes!
Ok, maybe you might be thinking “I already know this stuff.” Or maybe you think you aren’t a perfectionist. But some of the research, observations, and aspects that Rebecca shares might get you thinking twice. Perfectionism is very sneaky and, yet, can invade our lives and businesses to an extremely unhealthy level.
We’ll discuss what perfectionism may be doing to you and costing you with your art. We’ll also talk about how perfectionism may actually be holding you back from success and growth. Of course, we’ll share strategies and tips for overcoming and letting go of perfectionism!
In this podcast, you will discover…
- What perfectionism may be costing you
- The emotions that perfectionism is trying to cover up
- How to implement daily life practices to help you let go

“Come to my studio so I can open my room up! My studio is about 11×10, and I have a large, beautiful window, but I don’t know how I could have a desk facing the door to coming in. What a great show and always informative. Miriam, you said you were not organized, but you must be as many things as you have going on! Enjoy the day!”
