Defeating Imposter Syndrome in Your Editing Practice

Me, Myself, and Am I Good Enough?

Have you ever secretly felt like a fraud? Like you got where you are due to sheer luck and certainly not by your talent and skills? This feeling is called imposter syndrome. It and the related shame, fear, and anxiety it causes can ricochet across your professional life, leaving boulders strewn across your path to success and black holes where your self-confidence should be. Well, no more.

In this transformative webinar, you will learn how to:

  • identify the ways imposter syndrome manifests in your life and career
  • recognize what triggers your self-doubt and build a plan of attack
  • confront negative self-talk and turn it around
  • deal with social media and the compare game
  • develop strategies to build your self-confidence and increase your professional skills
  • use grounding techniques and antianxiety aids for when imposter syndrome tries to come back

Join presenter Erin Servais and take your first steps to a life beyond imposter syndrome, where you take ownership of your greatness and prepare to take the next step in your editing career.

Registration closes two hours before the start of this meeting. Nonmembers may attend up to two free Professional Editors Network meetings before becoming a member.
