I have a confession to make,
I often felt like an imposter, like a fraud in professional life.
Ok there I said it!
I guess it already started in my first job as an ICT girl with CSC.
I was hired even though I didn’t know a thing about ICT.
And what was even worse,
I was sent to this big company where
I was supposed to be the young IT expert.
But I was not.
Honestly that felt really awkward.
I felt out of place, nervous, stupid, intimidated. ….
But I got out of it alive
I’ll tell you in a sec.
At other moments in my professional life
I was confronted with that same impostor syndrome:
As a consultant, I was sent off to companies
in order to manage some important reorganizations,
I was sent off to train people about things I barely knew about, etc…
So I felt like a fraud.
Luckily no one else thought I was a fraud.
I told myself that the ideal way not to feel like that
is to take the matter in my own hands an start my own company.
But also then, I sometimes feel a bit uncomfortable
when I have to tell people what my company is all about
and how I want to help other people build their personal brand
“Who am I to claim that authority??”.
When people start to blog,
they often have that feeling
"who am I to start blogging and to claim to be an expert?!"
Do you recognize that too?
The imposter syndrome
Are you convinced that blogging might just be a great solution to build your Personal Brand?
You want to share your message with your target audience…
But you ask yourself… what exactly will I be writing about?
Or maybe you have been blogging for a while, and now you sometimes feel stuck…
No inspiration anymore…
The so-called writer’s block.
No worries – you are not alone!
And in this video I will give you 3 tips on how to avoid the writer’s block.
What's the dumbest thing you could do when you have a blog?
Using your articles only once.
Let's be honest: a good article takes effort.
Even professional bloggers spend a lot of time and energy in creating an article for their blog.
It requires at least a few hours of thinking and writing to get a really outstanding one.
By using a certain method, I have restricted my own blogging time to about two hours a week, but it could cost you a whole day (or even more).
Isn't it a shame to just send your article to your email list and limit social sharing to once on your favorite social platforms?
That's a sure way to never succeed with your blog...
Are you determined to grow your business with your articles?
Then you should at least take more action to spread them.

I bet you don't use at least 3 of them!
What do you do when you want to start something, but you don't have a clue where to start and how?

Now, I don't know what about you, but when I want to know more about a topic...
I read about it,
I listen to podcasts and audio books
I attend webinars and seminars
I ask people who are experts on the matter.
Frustrated because there is so much to learn...
