Beating Imposter Syndrome

The very first thing I ever won in business was some free coaching. I was terrified.  Six sessions to be delivered by A Very Impressive Person, with half a ton of letters after their name, coming into my business and inevitably exposing that any success I had ever had was all an error, or, at best, just outrageous good luck. It was years afterwards that I read about Imposter Syndrome and realised that my shaking terrors had been a classic case. Researchers believe that about 70% of people suffer from Imposter Syndrome, otherwise known as Fraud Syndrome at some time in their lives.
