3 Entrepreneurs Kicked Imposter Syndrome To The Curb (And You Can Too)

I LOVE working with aspiring entrepreneurs…the ones still kicking it in the cubicle.

The ones with notepads full of to-do lists and moments of inspiration scribbled down between meetings then stuffed into desk drawers.

The ones juuuust starting out and who have a million and one questions. 

And because I’ve worked with so many for so long…I recognize the questions that throw the brakes on for many, many aspiring entrepreneurs.

That’s right…

…there are questions that each and every aspiring entrepreneur asks that has the potential to put those big dreams on ice and keep your passionate, creative, capable, world-changing toosh in an office chair, working for someone else for waaaay too long.

Questions like…

  • “Who am I to teach something to others?”
  • “Who would pay for what I have to offer?”
  • “Who would want to hear what I have to say?”

(Questions like this are why I do everything that I do.)

Because these questions creep up on every single person who has ever tried something new.

Which means that if every inventor, teacher, business owner, creator, or artist in history believed the voices that told them…

“You knew it — that seat’s taken. Don’t embarrass yourself, there’s no room for you.”

…then this world would be totally robbed of the bright, vibrant, diverse, and awe-inspiring gifts shared throughout history. 

Which means there’s a place for you and your gifts at the table. 

The world needs what you have to offer, my friend.

And so in this episode, I want to help you push through that self doubt to make big decisions, take big risks, and go to bat for the dreams that you know are possible. 

In fact, I invited 3 successful online entrepreneurs to share exactly how they worked through self doubt and imposter syndrome as they created a business and life that they really, truly love.

And, of course, I share a few behind-the-scenes stories from my own business…because there’s not a single entrepreneur in history who doesn’t battle with imposter syndrome and self doubt on the reg. 

Oh yeah…12 years later? It’s still a struggle. But it does get better.

Self doubt doesn’t have to hold you back from living the big dreams that you have for yourself. 

In fact, sometimes it’s the voice in your head saying, “You can’t” that allows you to say, sometimes for the first time, “Actually, I think I can.”

There’s unspeakable power in that small but mighty statement, my friends. With just those few words, you become unstoppable. 

So settle in, get quiet, and let’s talk about how to flip the script on that — very normal, very scary, but very much in your control — voice in your head.
