Origin™ Interview Series: Part Four – Recovering Perfectionist Quadruples Her Productivity

I originally dreamed up Origin™ for women like me who are raising kids and running a business at the same time.

One of the things that’s blown me away the most about the journey of creating this community and nurturing it is how many women deeply relate to the content and community who aren’t mothers.

One of these women is Eliza, and I’m so excited to introduce you to her today.

Eliza is an author, speaker, and entrepreneur who’s been in business with her mother leading workshops since she was in her teens. She’s also a recovering perfectionist who found herself exhausted and constantly racing on the day she heard about Origin™.

Through incorporating some of the simple practices I teach in our community, Eliza has quadrupled her productivity and is finally launching things she’s been trying to get off the ground for over a year and a half.

Plus, she finally believes she can create what she wants. And she has the support to do it.

Click the video below to learn how this practical realist reorganized her schedule to tap into a wellspring of getting things done that she never before imagined.

Want to learn how to stop racing all day and instead get things done in a way that feels like you could work in this way for years to come? My free Sustainable Success Workshop is coming up October 10th.

Get on the VIP Waitlist so you don’t miss it.

Get on the list for the FREE Sustainable Success Workshop Series. Starts Oct 10th! 


What did you learn from Eliza’s journey from perfectionism to productivity? How can you apply it to your own life? Let me know in the comments!

The Origin™ Interview Series: Part One – Attracting Unexpected Success Through Saying No

About a month ago, I had the honor of spending the day having heart-to-hearts with four of the extraordinary women who are members of the Origin™ Collective. I got a little misty in each and every video (these women are incredible), and I finished the interviews with an even fuller heart, knowing that what we’re creating…

How to Do Less When You Have Way Too Much to Do

This summer my “Do Less” philosophy has been biting me in the ass. If I were to give this summer a title it would be “The Summer of More.” I didn’t intend to have a summer that was bursting at the seams, but that’s what happened. We kicked off by launching Origin™ with the most moving parts…

There’s No Such Thing As Being Behind

I’ve never been part of any group of people doing anything where there wasn’t at least one person who felt behind. They hadn’t completed all the reading. They hadn’t yet gotten their period. They hadn’t been kissed. Or asked out. Or asked to dance. They hadn’t watched all the videos or completed all of the…

Privilege, Discomfort, and the Courage to Pay Attention

I was walking out of the West African Dance class that I TA’d in college when a tall, slim African-American guy from class caught up to me on the green. He was dressed all in white with these gauzy, drawstring pants that gave his whole style a timeless quality. He had big hair and nice…

It’s All Part Of It

The other day I was really enjoying the process of doing my makeup but also feeling like I should really get to work on my burgeoning to-do list. I mean, applying makeup isn’t exactly a revenue-generating activity for me. But then I stopped myself and thought: Enjoying the process of adorning myself is self care….

Optimization Without Exhaustion

I get it. You want everything to be more streamlined, more efficient, speedier, more productive, more profitable, and absolutely optimal. I want that, too. Yet in the constant striving for the best, we can run ourselves ragged. So how do we shoot for excellence without ending up in a puddle on the floor each night…

How (and Why) to Write a Letter to an Angel

He barely spoke English. I spoke no Italian. I couldn’t figure out why he’d been so head-over-heels for me and then turned into an ice cube so suddenly. I only had two more weeks in Italy, and it seemed such a waste to leave with a broken heart. So I wrote a letter to his…
