In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Jeff Rose discusses the one component that stands in the way of success for many entrepreneurs: the need for perfection. 

Don't let perfection stop you from making progress and conitnuing to establish a better business. Some things take time and experience to get just right, and sometimes you need to take a leap of faith before you can learn what went wrong.
