As entrepreneurs, we’re often put under pressure to replicate our peers, but that can compromise our focus, authenticity and it can force us into needlessly chasing perfectionism. How do we escape this trap? What is positive polarization, and how can it work to our favor? How can we stay in alignment as our businesses grow?
On this episode, founder of Magamama and author of The Fourth Trimester, Kimberly Johnson, shares on running a successful business while staying true to herself.

I always leave room that I could be wrong, and I always leave room for me to change my mind, and that makes me let go of perfectionism. – Kimberly Johnson
In order for people to resonate with us, we need to be okay with a healthy level of differentiation. This means we will say things some people won’t like, but the things that make us different are what make us stand out to our desired audience.
The specificity of the details we share pulls people in
A lot of people don’t know what specific help they need – they know what they’re feeling but they can’t identify the problem. It is through our content and what we share that they can resonate with us and also identify the areas they need help with.
Don’t be too focused on the perfect routine
Life is cyclical, it ebbs and flows and we won’t always be able to have or uphold the same routine. As spiritual entrepreneurs, we’re led by energy, and that often means dealing with chaos. But it is possible to build and run a successful business without being a person with strict routines.
