Imposter Syndrome is the insidious voice that strikes fear and self-doubt in our hearts, despite all the evidence that we deserve to be right where we are. When we’re caught in its grip, even our most impressive accomplishments and accolades lose their power to persuade us that we have earned our place at the table. Imposter Syndrome is created on the outside by experiences we have and messages we receive—but healing Imposter Syndrome is an inside job. Drawing on her personal experience of overcoming Imposter Syndrome after surviving a traumatic childhood, and her thirty years of experience as a coach and consultant, Jennifer shares powerful stories to illustrate how the Ten Touchstones can help us wake up to our worth. When we have confidence and courage, we can live lives full of opportunity, joy, and freedom—and inspire others to do the same. In the words of activist Grace Lee Boggs, “In order to transform the world, we must transform ourselves.”

Tim Wortham, Jr.“This book is so necessary for the countless number of us who suffer from Impostor Syndrome in silence. The beauty of this book is it is not merely an explanation of what Impostor Syndrome is — why we feel what we feel — but also, a strategy and roadmap for how we can overcome Impostor Syndrome via the Ten Touchstones. I recommend this book to all who suffer from feelings of perpetual inadequacy, a sense of not belonging, or fear of being deemed a fraud.”

Nellis Kennedy-Howard“As a Native woman and leader, I am constantly being asked “How much are you?”, and this book feels like a refreshing gift that says “You are more than enough.” I see myself in so many of Jennifer’s stories and relate to all of the emotions she describes. Jennifer’s ability to use personal vulnerability and story encourages readers to bring thoughtful intention to find one’s most authentic self. The practices in this book are simultaneously rooted in humility and confidence, and the teachings are practical and relatable–a true gift to leaders and people everywhere.”

Mare Chapman“Part memoir, part practical suggestions for overcoming Imposter Syndrome, this kind, gentle book, is about loving, healing, and accepting ourselves just as we are. Doing so is the path to freedom and the confidence of knowing that our authentic self, our true nature, is always here and always enough. This is a clear and wonderful book for anyone who suffers from the false belief that they don’t matter.”
