    Book Review! With Author Vitale Buford 'Addicted To Perfect'

    Book Review! With Author Vitale Buford 'Addicted To Perfect'

    I spend time with author Vitale Buford discussing her life and one of my favorite books EVER...Addicted To Perfect. This brutally open and honest memoir shows the dangers of chasing perfection and Vitale covers many strategies she's learned to kick a ten year addiction, toxic relationships, and an eating disorder. She is now living her best life! Tune in to find out how!
    more on Vitale:  "I’m an agent of transformation and lasting change. It’s taken me years to reach this place in life and it’s my mission to help others get where they want to be much, much faster. Aside from a professional coaching certification through iPEC (Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching) and 10+ years of corporate coaching, I’ve developed a superpower for helping stuck individuals and companies take action through learning one necessary, fundamental truth – They’re worth it. I’ve infused my professional education with my personal experience of overcoming a 10-year addiction and an eating disorder to create a unique coaching system. No two people are the same and neither are their blueprints. Each person receives a customized plan as individual as they are – based on a combination of education, experience, and intuition.  I believe in high-fives, homework, and celebrations, and my favorite thing in the world is getting lost with my son and feeling like a kid again."
