Ahh imposter syndrome. That ol' devil. It affects us all. Particularly when we have ADHD.

I'm your host Katie McManus and in this episode of The Weeniecast I'm sharing how I suffered with imposter syndrome in a big way. And without spoilers, it kinda involves this podcast!

This one of our more intentional 'time to stop being a weenie' focused episodes!

In this week's episode, we'll explore the insidious nature of Imposter Syndrome and its impact on ADHD entrepreneurs.

We'll discuss how it tends to rear its head just when we've achieved something significant, leaving us doubting our abilities and fearing that we won't be able to maintain our success.

We'll also talk about how Imposter Syndrome preys on us when we're not at our best, whether we're sick, tired, or hangry.
