When Imposter Syndrome Comes Knocking
This was originally posted on my Seven Figure Consultant LinkedIn Newsletter. Subscribe today to get insights about how women are building powerful and impactful consulting businesses.
Do you feel confident as the CEO of your consulting business?
Or do you have a growing sense of unease? Maybe it feels like it is all too easy, or that you somehow don’t deserve that client. Or perhaps that you’re aiming too high and you’ll be found out at any moment.
This is what happens when imposter syndrome comes knocking. You could call it an intense feeling of ‘unworthiness’, or being in a room (or job, or even in a life) where you don’t belong – and where you could be ‘found out’ at any time and asked to leave.
You increasingly feel like you want to escape. You might turn down opportunities. You fear someone saying your price is too high or questioning your work. You could even be thinking about quitting your business altogether.
This is not something that is unique to women, but it is something that many women I speak to experience. And if you are reading this and thinking it is sounding very familiar, I want you to know that for anyone building a consulting business, it is normal to feel utterly terrified at the prospect.
In this episode of the Seven Figure Consultant Podcast I’m talking about imposter syndrome and what you can do to get back to feeling congruent and confident in your consulting business.
● Signs you might be experiencing imposter syndrome
● The feeling of wanting to escape
● How to spot when you are self-sabotaging your business
● Fear of setting prices
● Playing small
● The need to invest in your mindset
● Key questions you need to ask yourself to get the life you want and deserve
And let me know – have you experienced imposter syndrome? What helped you to process it and move forward?
Free Report – The Six Elements of a Seven Figure Consulting Business
I’ve created a free PDF report called The Six Elements of a Seven Figure Business. It’s my most popular free resource and in it I outline the 6 areas of unscaled businesses that need to change in order to move past being ‘booked up and burned out’ and shifting into that higher gear that gets you cruising again.
It’s the framework that helps consultant women like you find their feet and get back to leading the business, rather than being buried in client work and back-end business operations.
Thanks for reading! I’d love to hear your feedback and future topics you’d like me to feature.
