After an invigorating Saturday morning breakfast, women flocked to the early morning sessions where they discussed a flaw many of us have succumbed to - perfectionism.
BLACK ENTERPRISE's Women of Power session, “Progress, Not Perfection”, hosted by Lilly, brought together a panel of recovering perfectionists who encouraged the attendees to risk failure instead of striving for perfection.

She went on to describe how, due to her excessive workload, she had lost sight in her left eye and developed a fibroid tumor ten times the size of her uterus.
