Today’s badass guest, Megan Dowd of Megan Dowd Pilates, definitely subscribes to the belief that challenges are teachers. In fact, she believes that doing hard things is essential to testing the limits of our potential.
This episode is for all the recovering perfectionists among us (hands up 🙌) who are in need of a little reminder that sometimes, the hardest work is slowing down when we feel compelled to speed up and do more.
