How To Overcome Imposter Syndrome, with James Mitra

“There is nothing wrong with doubting yourself. Having a bit of self doubt is good, because it means you’re constantly trying to improve, grow and evolve.” 

In this week’s bite-sized 40 Minute Mentor episode, we tackle a topic that is often discussed amongst Founders and leaders – imposter syndrome. 

Having experienced imposter syndrome on many occasions over the last 10 years of leading JBM, our host James Mitra shares some of the advice that has helped him to push through self doubt. 

Plus, we hear again from two previous 40 Minute Mentors – Michelle You of Supercritical and Amelia Sordell of Klowt, and their own experience with imposter syndrome.
