Jan 19, 2021

There is a saying, “Perfection is the enemy of done.”

And it’s real. It’s not just a phrase.

I see this all the time. So have others. Even Forbes has noticed. (And they’re kind of a big deal, don’t you think?)

Their focus is on producing high-quality outputs for their clients.

A lot of Virtual Assistants joining my Virtual Expert® Training program are self-proclaimed perfectionists.
