This is me.
Spending time on my vacation getting my story on tape. Recording 20 times because I want it to be perfect to realizing on pass 21 that life isn't perfect and I shouldn't expect this to be either. As a perfectionist I listen back and pick out each part that I wonder what I was thinking or cut out dead air to not have a perfect transition and becoming frustrated and want to start again.
I can promise something. There is much time to go and there's a lot of learning to do, but I continue to remember that moment 10 years or so ago when I heard the words "your story will help someone else". This won't be perfect and won't be from a seasoned speaker or great audio guy because that's simply not me.... but it's one step in letting my story potentially help someone else struggling in their own life.
