The purpose of the progress-not-perfection podcast is to discover the habits of highly successful people so that listeners can apply those same techniques to reach their own life goals. I will interview guests who are "masters of their craft" to understand their stories of how they became successful, the challenges they faced, and the things they continually did to remain motivated. I'll be interviewing everyone from freelance journalists to financial advisors and everything in between. Join me at www.progress-not-perfection.com for recaps of every interview, blog posts, book recommendations and more.
