How I Finally Beat Imposter Syndrome


Imposter syndrome affects 70 percent of us – including me.nnThe global financial crisis hit my business – and my confidence – hard.nnI had built a 6-figure home-based consulting business and then in June 2008 I lost three out of my four biggest customers and more than 50 percent of my income evaporated overnight. nnQuite honestly I felt like a fraud because here I was helping other business owners to grow their business and yet I was struggling. nnThe key for me moving past the feeling of self-doubt was to get out of my own head, and focus instead of serving my clients.  Instead of focusing internally (on my own failures, mistakes and shortcomings) I made a conscious effort to focusing externally – on how I could help my clients and add more value.nnIt sounds almost too simple – but that small shift in thinking and getting out of my own head was the key that enabled me to move forward and rebuild my business.
