MFTP Episode 6: Be More with Melanie Knights

When does wanting more cross the line into striving for perfection? Is it okay to want more when you already have some of what you want, even things others might be lacking? And if it is okay to want more, how the heck do you go after that “more” -- whatever it might be -- without piling on the stress, overwhelm, self-doubt, and self-sabotage? Enter lifestyle development coach Melanie Knights, the originator of #effperfect.

Melanie helps us perfectionist types go after what we want in a healthy, sustaining way, not a draining one. If you’ve been struggling with juggling work, family, self-care, relationships, and all the things, Melanie has some deep wisdom to share about time, priorities, and how to stop should-ing all over yourself.
