I didn’t feel like I knew ANYTHING until I met someone who knew less than me.
It’s easy to focus on the bosses around you making money, landing clients, and pumping out content.
Even back when I was in school, I felt like I was always behind because I was seeing the highlight reel of the people around me.
I used to think “Who am I to teach someone how to launch their business?” because I felt so behind.
Since then, I have taken a few steps (in this case, there are 9) to overcome this feeling, and eventually land your first sales without that cringey salesperson feeling.
Imposter syndrome is something that affects almost everyone I know.
It’s normal to feel behind!
While there will always be people “ahead” of you, there are just as many people looking to you for advice and guidance and want what you have.
FIRST: OWN YOUR EXPERTISE
If you don’t’ start putting yourself out there and teaching people what you know, then you’ll never become an expert.
And remember: building expertise is always going to be a work in progress.
If imposter syndrome is something you struggle with, here are 5 points that personally helped me on my journey.
Once I gained the self confidence that my work was important and helping others, I knew I had to tackle the sales.
SECOND: OWN YOUR SALES PITCH (WITHOUT THE GUILT)
For me, I knew I was ready to sell to my audience the moment people started asking me to create things that were way beyond the scope of what I offer for free.
If you’re worried about coming off as too pushy, too salesy, or just inauthentic when you’re ready to sell, I made this video to help you with that.
Sometimes people will still call you a fraud or a scam, but here’s how I deal with those kind of comments.
When I remember these tips, it’s amazing to see how far I have come.
And it’s exciting to see that transformation in yourself.
Even taking one of these 9 tips and implementing it is SO impactful and important.
I hope this helps you take your brand to the NEXT LEVEL!
