In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak with Clare Josa, a leadership mentor, author of eight books, including Ditching the Imposter Syndrome.
After realising that she could not make a big enough difference in helping people by staying in the corporate world, Clare started her own leadership development business. When she had her first ever client, Clare saw that there are a lot of successful people who had their act together in the outside world but are actually struggling with imposter syndrome.
As someone who studied Psychology and a certified NLP trainer, she made it her mission to help business owners struggling with imposter syndrome to achieve their fullest business potential.
Listen to this episode to learn Clare’s advice to identify if you are suffering from imposter syndrome and how to overcome it so you can finally take your business to the next level.
One of the biggest things I see entrepreneurs with imposter syndrome is wanting to be everything to everybody, then wonder why nobody wants to come and find them. - Clare Josa
If I had a good mentor back then, I think that would have taken three or four years off of my journey. - Clare Josa
In this value-packed episode you'll learn:
- How imposter syndrome sabotages an entrepreneur’s successes and what to do to overcome it.
- The difference between imposter syndrome and just having confidence issues or self doubt.
- How men and women handle imposter syndrome differently.
- The five-stage process to help you close the imposter syndrome gap.
- What is the ‘basta’ moment and how it can help you become imposter syndrome-free.
- Why having comparisonitis will hurt your business and how to stop doing it.
- Why having a good coach or mentor is going to help you save time in growing your business.
...and so much more!
By all means research what others are doing to get a feel for the industry, but then stay in your lane. The only feedback you need is from your dream clients, not from other people. - Clare Josa
