The infamous impostor syndrome!
How does it affect you? If you are tired to feel slowed down by it, let's have a chat!
What exactly is the impostor syndrome?
It affects men and women. But women are highly affected as we get paralysed by it, while men have more bravery and act anyway. We wait to feel ready...and we wait and we wait...
We wait to ask for a pay rise and/or promotion even if we know we highly deserve it.
We wait to talk about our business to potential customers, as we are not ready yet... We just need one extra training, one extra book and let's enrol in another e-course. The list goes on and on.

This very common emotion reflects a belief that you’re an inadequate and incompetent failure, despite evidence that indicates you’re skilled and quite successful.
How do you know if you suffer from it? Well...do you ask yourself any of these questions?
'OMG! I suck at this... everyone is going to hate it!'
'I'm going to look like a fool!'
'I'm not good enough...'
'Who do you think I am?'
