A note to all the smart women who feel like Imposters:

If you ever feel insecure, inadequate or like a fraud, I want you to know that it has NOTHING to do with you, or how capable you are.

The truth is that even the most successful women at the heights of their careers, including Oprah, Michelle Obama, and Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, have also experienced imposter syndrome.

  • Practical strategies to overcome it and thrive in your personal and professional life.
