I Thought I’d Outgrown Perfectionism

I thought I “beat” perfectionism and learned to relax more, but I’ve just learned that I’m spread more thin since family & kids and don’t reach the desired expectation enough - and then overwhelm hits!I came across this podcast after searching perfectionism, as I just hit a bout of overwhelm. Episode 1 helped me realize the definition of perfectionism. I just finished episode 4 and it helped me realize how much I have achieved, but that I strive to reach for more. I’m excited to listen to more!

The Best Podcast Ever!

This podcast has been truly life changing for me! I don’t ever write reviews but have to do it for Sam because she is SO deserving of this recognition and I pray that she can reach and share her knowledge and kind spirit with the entire world. My husband is officially jealous of my friendship with you, Sam lol. But seriously, Listening to Sam is truly like curling up with your best friend and feeling so understood for who you are. Sam if you ever doubt your purpose, just read this review and remember that you have so many gifts and were created with a beautiful purpose and I thank you for sharing your gifts with me! Love always, Danielle

Incredibly helpful and practical

I love this podcast. SLB does an excellent job making her message relatable and practical for people dealing with perfectionism. She has a gentle way of pushing her listeners to disrupt their current habits without making it seem overwhelming. I re-listen to episodes regularly. Thank you!

Practical & genuine advice for perfectionists

I find Sam to be THE most relatable source for personal development information I have come across, and I appreciate how she shares advice through the lens of her personal experiences. Her podcast episodes are unedited, making them feel a conversation with a friend. Sam helped me gain valuable insight into the ways my fear of failure/shame, procrastination, and having all-or-nothing mindset hold me back. If you feel you need help in any of these areas, I highly recommend this podcast!

Game changer

I absolutely love listening to this podcast. It has been instrumental in realizing certain habits and beliefs that aren’t helping me achieve what I want in life. I’d highly recommend giving it a try - seriously can’t say enough good things.

This is the most trite and entitled podcast. It has absolutely no merit or redeeming qualities. She treats serious topics in a pollyanna fashion. It’s rather embarrassing to listen to. I would never tell a soul about it.

Favourite podcast!

When I first started listening to Sam’s podcast I was surprised by how relaxed and conversational it was, but this is now what makes it my absolute favourite. Sam is so easy to listen to, she explains concepts in a way that is really easy to digest (and also entertaining!)The main thing that makes this podcast stand out for me is Sam’s willingness to be completely open about her own struggles and experiences as she goes through them, and always with humour and humility. Listening to her feels like getting advice from a friend that you know and trust! If you want to be inspired, but also to be given really tangible and practical steps that you can follow, definitely listen to this podcast!

One of my favourites

I love listening to this podcast and Sam’s personal reflections on things - she explains things in a way that is easy to understand but gives you a brand new perspective on situations and how to move beyond the struggles of a perfectionist! Love how it feels like you’re catching up with a friend in each new episode too!

Sam says everything I didn’t realise I needed to hear

I swear Sam and I could be the same person. I’m normally a bit of a lurker but felt compelled to share the love and HIGHLY recommend getting some Sam Laura Brown in your ears. I’ve just started my journey to fight my self-saboteur and come to terms with my perfectionism issue and it feels like Sam is right there behind me, spotting me in case I fall. Thanks girl - you make a difference and I appreciate you.

Like listening to a friend for advice

I've really enjoyed listening to Sam whether I'm on my way to or from work, or walking my dog. I've found her podcast to be very inspiring not just because of her knowledge, but also because she speaks from such a relatable place. It's as if she knows exactly how I feel, but inspires you to keep going and push yourself to succeed and grow, no matter what. Keep up the great work, Sam!

Advice from someone who's in it with you

If you're looking for advice from someone who doesn't make you feel like you're not hitting your mark or that you need to know everything before you'll get anywhere, Sam is it. 🎉 She tackles real issues honestly and gracefully, and from the perspective of someone who is in the thick of it with you 💩 - but with well-informed and helpful advice. Unlike some podasts that feel more like a talkshow or a formal seminar, The Smart Twenties Podcast is like listening to a good friend - perfect for while you're driving or doing the dishes, and easy to apply to your own life. Thanks Sam! 🙌🏼💐
