This is a podcast episode titled, Recovering Perfectionist. The summary for this episode is: Perfection. Control. My fellow Type A personalities know what I’m talking about on this subject. So many of us are engrained to not make mistakes from such a young age and it often continues with us into adulthood. While striving for perfection may seem like a good idea initially, it actually tends to hold you back in your marketing career if you’re constantly waiting for perfection and increasing your time to market. Years of experience has taught me and many other marketers that speed is definitely better than perfection. In this episode, we chat with Leslie Bloom, VP of Marketing at Dozuki. She has 15 years of marketing and design experience. She’s previously worked at Experts Exchange, San Luis Obispo County Bicycle Coalition, political campaigns, and her own agency. We’re talking about what it’s like to be a recovering perfectionist and learning to get over needing to have constant control, handling feedback, leading marketing in an industry where you don’t have previous experience, and so much more.
