Meet Homaira Kabir

On the show today, we welcome Homaira Kabir, life coach, speaker, and author of the new book Goodbye, Perfect. Homaira has a master's degree in coaching psychology, positive psychology, and the scientific study of human flourishing, and is also the founder and CEO of The Goodbye Perfect Project.

Our guest does an outstanding job of explaining the concepts of confidence and perfectionism and the connection between these two forces within us.
