3 Mindset Shifts to Eliminate Imposter Syndrome as a WAHM

Well hey there and welcome back to another episode of the Mama Business podcast.

Before we get into today’s topic, I just wanted to let you know that the Mama Business Community is now open. And here’s the deal: running a business and keeping up with all of your family responsibilities can feel overwhelming and lonely.  But it doesn’t have to. That’s why I’ve created the free Mama Business Community – to bring likeminded mamas together to talk about all things related to running a business and managing a family at the same time. We talk about growth strategies, troubleshoot tech, and just have open discussions around our goals and dreams for the future. So, what are you waiting for? Join us today at

Alrighty, today we’re chatting about a topic that hits home for almost all of us, myself included – and it’s this feeling of imposter syndrome, that we aren’t good enough, or talented enough, or knowledgeable enough to be in whatever situation we find ourselves in.

And I know this is a business podcast, but I think this is something that mamas deal with across many areas of their lives. And it’s just the thing that leaves us feeling jealous of the people that seem to have it all together, frustrated that we can’t replicate that same success or achieve that same result, or even feeling a sense of doom that things might never work out.

Tell me I’m not the only one that’s felt that way?

Personally, I’ve never felt imposter syndrome more prominently than the few months after we adopted our girls. At the time they were four and five and, while I had been around other kids a bit here and there – I do have a teaching degree after all – when it came to raising kids in my own home I was lost. And my oldest went to kindergarten that year and I remember standing outside with the other moms waiting to pick our kids up and thinking about how I didn’t belong at all. These other moms had (for the most part) raised their kids from birth. They knew exactly what to expect, exactly what to have their kids wear in different seasons, and they had this amazing (or it seemed to me amazing) confidence when it came to engaging with the other moms. I was sorting out five years worth of trauma, as well as trying to figure all of those things out. And, I honestly didn’t feel like I had anything of value to add or that I ever would. And you know what? That was the loneliest I’ve ever been. Why? Because I allowed myself to stay there…to sit in that feeling of “I’m not good enough” or “I don’t add value”.

…and take it from me, that’s not a good feeling.

But the truth of the matter is that if we sit in that feeling of imposter syndrome, if we allow it to dictate how we react or engage with those around us, we end up stunting our own growth or the growth of our business.

So today I want to give you three questions to ask yourself the next time you come across a situation that leaves you feeling like you aren’t the expert in the room or, maybe, don’t even belong at all.
