Creative Boost: Overcoming imposter syndrome as an entrepreneur


Ever feel like a fraud? Have you wondered if you don't really deserve all the awards and recognition for your work? You know that you're "successful" but feel like someone will find out that you don't belong? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you probably have Imposter Syndrome. And no worries, you're not alone. Some of the most successful people in the world, like Will Smith and Maya Angelou, have Imposter Syndrome.

Imposter Syndrome, also known as 'fraud syndrome', is a psychological concept where high achievers struggle with the ability to truly believe their success is well earned.  Join our guest speaker, Davia Roberts and hear about her own experiences on overcoming impostorism.
