How to Overcome Perfectionism and Get the Job Done When You Don’t Feel Confident

And can we ever really know?

How do you balance the desire to try something new whilst also wanting to feel like an expert in your field? And how do you know when you are expert ‘enough’ to guide others on a subject?

Jonathan & Cynthia offer:

  • How to gain confidence when our skills are invisible to us
  • How to see our own expertise & talent
  • How to have patience while learning new subject matter
  • How to reframe teaching & releasing needing to know everything before beginning to guide others


In today’s episode we’re in conversation with:


Cynthia is the founder of the Original Impulse creative studio and atelier and coaching program for writers, she’s also an author, workshop facilitator, trusted advisor and coach.

LISTENER: Lily - Sparketype: Advisor/Maven

QUESTION: Today’s listener, Lily, is posing that question. She shares that she is craving something new to sink her teeth into, especially as a Maven, but also wants to feel like enough of an expert to market herself confidently and not feel like a fraud.

The real question being how do you build credibility and expertise in a new career field and sell your services with confidence or do we all have to go through the inevitable dip before the new skills settle in? And how do you move through that as a high achiever with high expectations of yourself?
