The Heart Of Your Work Is Not In Your Credentials - EP 93

 

“Has anybody ever asked you for any kind of credentials? Most often, the answer is no. So my message for you is to stop hiding: you’re enough. Go out there and create.”

—  Julie Greenham

 

The topic of this podcast is one that tends to come up a lot in conversations with my clients, with members of the Quiet Powerhouse Membership, and with entrepreneur friends of mine… and it’s a topic that used to come up quite often in conversation with myself, as well.

 

That’s right: this week’s episode is all about credibility.

 

Specifically, the idea that you need more credentials and certifications in order to feel worthy of serving your clients or audience.

 

Most often, this isn’t an idea that is brought up by the people we serve! It’s an idea that stems from inside ourselves — from the fear that we aren’t good enough or don’t have necessary expertise to help people or raise...
