We have a really special episode for you today. 

We are talking about something that I know a lot of practitioners and coaches and entrepreneurs struggle with, and that is feeling not ready, and feeling like an imposter. 

I know I struggled with it. I know a lot of people struggle with it and so I was so honored to be able to have Jyotsna on the podcast to speak about taking the control back into your hands, and overcoming the dreaded imposter syndrome.

Jyotsna was able to become a bestselling author, and form her very own publishing agency – Happy Self Publishing, and founded her own academy, Author Success Academy. 

In this episode, Jyotsna speaks about the never-ending cycle that impostor syndrome can trap you in, leading you to ask yourself:

  • Why should people listen to me?
  • What makes me the expert?
  • I don’t have millions of dollars or years of experience, so why should I be the authority?

If you have felt this negative thought cycle in your career or business, this is the podcast episode for you.
