Are you an EXPERT or a BIG FAT FAKER?

Posted on August 29th, 2017 in Story, Video by Denise

If you are an entrepreneur, you are an expert in what you do! You know what you do inside and out, and you have ended up where you are for a reason. You’ve worked really hard to get where you are and you’ve learned a lot, and you’ve gotten there on your own right. No matter what type of business you have, YOU are the expert! You’ve either built something out of nothing (if you created your own business) Or if you bought a business, you’ve grown it into what it is today. 

You didn’t get to where you are with luck. And you didn’t magically fall into that place. You worked your butt off to get there. 

However, many of us seem to be living in fear. We fear that everyone is going to find out that we are a big fat faker! That we have no idea what we are doing or what we’re talking about and that we are in waaayyy over our heads!

We seem unable to recognize all that we’ve accomplished and the fact that we are an expert in what we do. Despite all kinds of evidence, some of us still feel like we do not deserve the success we've achieved so far– we dismiss the proof as luck or timing, or that we’ve tricked people into thinking that we’re super smart, intelligent and competent in doing what we’re doing… but we’re really not. This is also known as imposter syndrome.
