How do we get past that nagging feeling that we aren't qualified or "ready" to do that thing we're supposed to do?

Jennifer Harshman works with people who want to make a difference, mostly writers and entrepreneurs. She says imposter syndrome is something we can all struggle with, but there are ways to overcome it.

  • Talk back to your inner critic
