Are you being or wanna-being? How to overcome the Impostor Syndrome


    When it comes to building our personal brand, the stories we tell ourselves can be the difference between taking action and procrastination - between momentum and stagnation.

    In Lauren Kress' Monday Motivation episode of the Grow Your Brand vodcast this week we're talking about how to overcome the impostor syndrome by tackling it head on.
