Learn how perfectionism eats up your time and mental space while your purpose sits on the sidelines. Today on the podcast I talk with Kristin Kembel about how we can put our purpose back in front again so we are living a happier life.

Kristin is originally from southern California, grew up in Atlanta, GA in the US, and made the big move to Australia last year. She’s a professional graphic designer, turned art director, turned girlboss business owner, and she spent most of her career helping to design and grow a women’s travel accessories brand. From graphic design, to product development and marketing- let’s just say she definitely knows the ins and outs, successes and struggles of growing and maintaining a brand.

We both open up and share our vulnerability of how perfectionism has affected our lives.
