Episode 27 - It’s Time to Slay Imposter Syndrome

Some of the most successful people in the world have suffered from a fraud complex or a secret fear that they'll be exposed or found out that they're terrible at what they do. In fact, studies show that over 70% of people are dealing with this. This affliction is commonly known as imposter syndrome. Amy Cuddy has described it as "the deep and sometimes paralyzing belief we have been given something we didn't earn and don't deserve and that at some point we'll be exposed." This week on the podcast, I'm sharing how we fall victim to the effects of imposter syndrome and walk you through the five types of imposter syndrome women commonly struggle with.
