One thing new content and course creators fail to talk about often is their insecurity when it comes to credibility.
Many seem to think, "Am I even credible to be making this online course?"
Imposter Syndrome is REAL for any content creator and breeds the hesitation for many to share their ideas and skills they think other people may benefit from.
But here are a few things to remember that can help overcome this.
Your Personal Experience is a VALUABLE learning tool that should not be underestimated. At the end of the day, you're sharing YOUR story and what worked for YOU.
Everyone learns differently from different people. Just because Jenny from the block won't need your course, doesn't mean other people won't too. Understand that you give a NEW and DIFFERENT approach to the topic of your choice.
You've Done the Work. You’ve been doing what you do for years and months, spent time to do your research, study, and analyze your topic. Don’t discredit all the work you’ve put into it.
Certifications don’t necessarily mean more trust. I’m not saying being certified isn’t important, but it’s not the only thing that matters. Building an audience requires trust that doesn’t just come from that kind of credibility, but also from your personal experiences. People relate to you better once they know more about you.
Be Kind to Yourself. Why is it that we’re much harder on ourselves than anyone else? Be kind to yourself and don’t put yourself down before you’ve even put the work out.
Share what you have to share. If you end up helping at least one person, then you know you succeeded in what you were trying to do in the first place.
