Anyone else love podcasts? My favorite activity has become going on 4-mile walks while binging a few of my beloved shows. Here are a couple of my favorite podcasts (some of which are online marketing related because ya girl loves to learn) to add to your playlist:⠀⠀⠀
I’ll be honest, starting a business is more complicated than I expected. I mean, I graduated with a liberal arts degree -- not business management. Once I realized that I needed to seek external support in order to build a business, I turned to one of my favorite digital marketing influencers, Jenna Kutcher. She encourages the listeners of her podcast, Goal Digger, to join the Rising Tide Society.
If you have ever wondered about the origin of the hashtag #communityovercompetition, it's the Rising Tide! In essence, the organization is a national support group by creatives for creatives. There are local chapters, referred to as "Tuesdays Together" where members meet once a month to discuss topics such as SEO, websites, Pinterest for business, etc. Basically, these monthly meetings serve as a mastermind and networking opportunities.
Impostorism is a topic I have wanted to cover for a while. With the influx of recent graduates making their grand debut into the job market, many young professionals may relate to the feeling of impostorism. Especially in regards to social media, where the majority of people only post their highlight reels and not their less than glamorous behind-the-scenes, the comparison game is real.
What is impostor syndrome?
For those who may not know, impostor syndrome, (also known as impostor phenomenon, impostorism, fraud syndrome or the impostor experience), is defined as, "a psychological pattern in which a person doubts their accomplishments, and has persistent, internalized fear of being exposed as a fraud."
Roughly 70% of the world population experiences impostor syndrome, across race, gender, age, etc. Impostorism is noted in high-achievers. While impostor syndrome isn’t subjected to one group of people, researchers note it typically affects women more than men. More, its presence increases among minorities.
