Written by Susan Vernicek

Embrace your qualifications, step into your power, and become the confident mompreneur you’re meant to be.

Meet Lisa. She’s a mom of 3, a passionate writer, and an aspiring business owner. Despite her talents and dreams, she often found herself paralyzed by a nagging thought: “I’m not qualified.” Sound familiar?

Lisa’s journey began like many of ours. She had brilliant ideas for a book, a unique business concept, speaking, and a skill set honed over years of experience.

Yet, every time she took a step forward, self-doubt crept in. “Who am I to write a book?” she thought. “Why would anyone buy my products?” she questioned. These doubts weren’t just whispers; they were loud, debilitating thoughts that held her back.

This feeling is commonly known as imposter syndrome, and it’s something many mompreneurs face.

Balancing MomLife and BizLife is challenging enough without the added pressure of feeling unqualified. But Lisa’s story doesn’t end there—it’s just the beginning of her transformation.
