Ep. 181: Perfectionism and Your Side Hustle with Crystal Brisson


I’m here with Crystal Brisson of the Project GLOW Radio podcast, and today we’re doing a hybrid episode for both of our listeners! Today we’re both sharing our journeys and being super transparent about our journeys and businesses.

  • How Crystal confronted her perfectionism head on and her advice on how to break free from it.
  • Our issues with body image and how that affects our businesses.
  • What “show up for the messy” means in body image and business.
  • How to deal with the crickets after finishing your website and what to do instead.
  • Crystal’s advice for me in my quest to stop working so much.
  • Why she thinks there’s no such thing as balance.
  • Why having a clear goal is so important.
  • Why you shouldn’t expect our journey to look perfect.

Crystal Bio:

I help women repair their relationship with food & their relationship with their body image.
