Australian business coach Anthony English and I are becoming good friends. Or is it mates?
I spoke with him recently about barriers to being in business as an expert in your field. The same barriers can hold back career changers.
Fear of failure is all too common. Fear of not being good enough, or feeling like you could be seen as a fraud can hold experts back. Imposter syndrome is a term we sometimes hear associated with these things.
How can you overcome this and gain some confidence?
Anthony says forget about confidence. Get some external validation first!
What do you think?
