This interview with Dr. Valerie Young was from 2013 but I looked at my podcast list and I never shared it with you! I blame pregnancy brain. So I know that was a long time ago but I can’t even tell you how many times I went back to this interview because the content was truly life-changing for where my career took me after 2013. Today we are talking about the impostor syndrome…. where many high-achieving females tend to believe that they are not as intelligent as other people think. When I was asked to speak in Brazil just a year after this interview, I had some major impostor syndrome happening. Who was I to speak to 800 women internationally and be treated like royally? I had to get over this negative mentality to achieve the success that I had for my first international speaking engagement.
Here’s the key you will learn today: You will always have the impostor syndrome. No matter what, that little voice will always be in the back of your head telling you that you aren’t ready. You just have to learn to ignore it and march on! You’ll learn more, I don’t want to spoil it for you!
