Do you feel like an imposter because you’re good at many things, but not a master at anything?
It’s a common issue for multi-passionates. You’re multi-talented, but because you find it hard to specialise in any one thing, you feel like you can’t possibly help people and that, if you tried, they’ll expose you as a fraud.
This is called imposter syndrome. It’s a cognitive distortion that keeps you from sharing all your gifts with your clients and doing the work that only you, with your unique mix of passions, skills, and talents, can do in the world.
In today’s episode, I talk about how to overcome imposter syndrome, so you can finally share all of who you are with the world and create the multi-passionate business you’ve always been dreaming of:
IN THIS EPISODE

- Debunking the “Jack of all trades, master of none” myth
- The truth about imposter syndrome – and what it really says about you
- An easy 3-step exercise to overcome imposter syndrome

“Because qualifications, technical training, and hours spent honing your craft matter, but they’re not the only things that matter. What about creativity? What about passion?”
“You don’t need to be the best or the most skilled. You just have to be good enough and passionate enough about what you do to be able to help your clients. There’s someone out there who needs to hear your message from you, who needs someone with the exact mix of gifts you have, and it’s your duty to help them.”
“If you let imposter syndrome hold you back, your clients lose out because they won’t get the help they need, the help that only you can provide, and you lose out because you don’t get to do work you love and the fulfillment that comes from that, and your family and friends lose out because you’ll feel frustrated and unhappy and that’s how you’ll show up in your relationships too. We all lose out when you let imposter syndrome win.”
“When you don’t celebrate your accomplishments, your brain downplays them.”
