Speak Without Apology to Overthrow Imposter Syndrome

November 18 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

You are the expert on YOU. Work through negative self-talk about your “expertise” to speak confidently in front of others. Stop apologizing before you open your mouth to share. Learn to own your story, live into the reality of who you are and what you can contribute, and stop the constant “sabofrauding” of the value of your own experiences and contributions.

The toughest part of getting started is believing that you are the person who should be in the race. Learn about the value of your expertise and how you can apply it in any situation and pick up valuable insight and tools into how you can keep your fear at bay as you slay.
