Overcoming Imposter Syndrome to Create a Great Online Course

Show Notes

In this episode, I will discuss imposter syndrome and my top tips for overcoming it.

When people are creating their own online courses, people have these thoughts of I’m not good enough, or I don’t know enough, I don’t have the expertise. I’m not a qualified teacher. I’m not qualified in that area of what I’m talking about. I don’t have any qualifications. I’m a hobbyist, or it’s just something that’s interesting to me. And impostor syndrome is something that everybody feels it’s something that if you talk to even the most successful people in your niche, or the most successful people in business, if you listen to them on podcasts, on TV, interviews, whatever, nearly everybody who I admire in the business world in the celebrity world, or whichever world you want to look in, nearly all of them has say that they have tackled impostor syndrome at some point in their careers, or they are still tackling impostor syndrome. And what I wanted to go through today in this episode is really hitting head on what is impostor syndrome?

And what can you do about it, particularly when it comes to creating an online course and teaching online. And I’m gonna go out on a bit of a limb here and say that I don’t necessarily think that imposter syndrome is a bad thing, we get impostor syndrome, because we are pushed out of our comfort zone. And if we’re pushed out of our comfort zone, then we’re growing. And we’re growing as people, as individuals, as creators, and as business owners. And without this growth, we might never explore new possibilities. And it might be easy to think that you won’t create an online course because you aren’t an expert.
But what if you did create that online course? What’s the worst thing that’s going to happen?
