    Hi, I know this is an old post but I having been listening to your recent podcasts for a while and I am now working my way through from the start. I have been looking for an image to put on a blog post for ages now and couldn’t get the right one….until today. The second Stacy said ‘Don’t let the perfect get in the way of the good’, I knew I wanted that quote. I hope you and Stacy are k with me using it but it resonated so much with what I wanted to say. Another amazing episode! Thank you.
