An honest chat about something that’s on my mind and I think is holding me back. Please remember to subscribe and expand to read more!

Imposter syndrome is a bitch. I know I care way too much about what other people think of me, but I do really want to be respected as a designer. And I also want to feel like I’m deserving of that respect! I realise that the way i talked about focussing on my career might have come across like I’m not making videos anymore?? But that’s for sure not the case! You’ll see me in your subscription boxes every single week, just as I have been making a new video every week for almost 5 years now.

Thank you thank you for 100,000 subscribers. That’s huge and I can’t believe it. And I also feel like I don’t deserve it lol thanks imposter syndrome for that too. I’m excited to share what I’m learning with you and to talk about design projects I’m working on.

What’s a fear that’s holding you back? If you feel comfortable sharing, I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
