It’s an ongoing battle

I’m not the best. Someone else could do a better job than me.

This is the voice of Imposter Syndrome, a voice I’ve been battling for years. In 2018 I wrote about beating this voice. I didn’t lie—I was beating Imposter Syndrome back then, but this voice is persistent. …


Don’t gamble on trial-and-error

Hosting an online summit is an overwhelming process. There are so many moving pieces!
