It’s not About Perfection or the Perfect Roadmap
Guest Speaker ~ Kristin Buchlet
“The quote I use a lot of times in my book is: Parenting is not about perfection. It’s about the power in your plan. I would say that about being an author. It’s not about perfection. It’s about the power of sticking to it and getting to the end. It’s getting helpers along the way; and, if you need to take a little break, take that little break. It’s not about a perfect path or the perfect outline, but it’s about just diving and doing it.”
– Kristin Buchtel
