Raise your hand if you pride yourself on not making mistakes or have shared that the reason why someone should hire you is because you’re a perfectionist 🙋🏻♀️
Keep your hand raised if you also tend to obsess over all the details, beat yourself up if you make a mistake, or feel like a failure when you don’t live up to the unattainable standards and pressure that you’re putting on yourself.
If your hand is still up, this episode is for you 💗
I’m thrilled to welcome my friend Steph Orosco (@scalingwithheart), Business + Mindset Coach for Virtual Assistants, onto the podcast to share about her journey of learning to let go of perfectionism, releasing the need to see things in only black or white / life or death 😬, and how she started to embrace the gray area instead.
We dive into how the last 4 years of uncovering and shifting her perfectionism have had a profound impact on her nervous system and the way she speaks to herself, and how she now supports her own coaching clients in unraveling this pattern that tends to run deep, so that they can live more, make more, and find peace.
Tune into this episode of Being All Of You as Steph and I talk about:
✨ How getting passed over for a promotion at her 9-5 was actually the catalyst for Steph in starting her own business + how that’s fueled her bigger vision for the last 6 years
✨ Steph’s earliest memories of trying to be perfect and how that translated into her business and the way she worked with her clients as a VA
✨ The turning point when Steph realized that perfectionism was holding her back and hindering her growth, rather than being a “good” thing like so many of us tend to think
✨ The sneaky places where Steph most often sees perfectionism pop up for her coaching clients and the fantastic questions she asks to help them start to recognize that they have a choice in shifting how they move through business and life + how embracing the messiness will actually get you more of what you want
✨ The unexpected recent choice Steph made to shift out of perfectionism that she never saw coming and how it’s created more freedom, flexibility, and joy in her life today
Steph Orosco is a Business and Mindset Coach for Virtual Assistants, and she’s based in Austin, TX.

When Steph’s not curled up with her rescue pup (and running her dream business from bed), she can be found pushing herself through early morning strength training sessions, loving on her nephews and niece, and traveling + exploring with her favorite human and husband, Sam.
