An open letter: self-doubt is normal and professional development doesn’t make you an imposter
This subject has been on my mind for a long time. And I feel it’s worth getting on the soap box for.
The unknown is scary.
As entrepreneurs, the unknown is a state of being. Whether it’s starting a business, creating a movement, launching a new service, or working through a rebrand, self-doubt is pretty much a given.
It’s easy for us to dismiss all our achievements as a result of blind luck. Or that it would have happened anyway (and probably without us).
I was listening to a podcast interview with Todd Herman where he talked about imposter syndrome. As solopreneurs, when we’re trying to do it all ourselves (including the elements of our biz we’re not so great at), it means that imposter syndrome and feeling like a fraud rears it’s ugly head when we put ourselves out there. (And that includes content creation.)
You know what? That’s normal.
