Imposter Syndrome as a small business owner, can hit in a variety of ways. It's what gives you a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach when you market your services, need to give a presentation, or sell your services on a discovery call. At the same time, it’s also manifested in the way you cringe when you need to carry out a task you’ve never done before.

In all of these scenarios, the core idea here is fear. Fear of having others see you're not good enough. Fear you don't have the skills to do what you need to do. Fear you don't have control of the situation or the ability to prove (again) you have what it takes to be successful.

Imposter Syndrome for small business owners is especially damaging, as your livelihood depends on you being successful to some degree. It’s also the cause of too much stress, too many lost weekends where you put in hours upon hours. It’s also the reason you micromanage or won’t outsource any tasks and can’t let go of mistakes. Especially your own.
