It’s not where you come from, it’s where you’re going.

It’s not where you come from, it’s where you’re going.

Do you ever feel like you're a fraud, even when you've achieved your goals?

Do you worry that you'll be exposed as a failure at any moment? If so, you're not alone. Imposter syndrome is a common experience, even among the most successful people.

Imposter syndrome can hold you back from achieving your full potential. It can make you hesitate to take on new challenges, avoid speaking up in meetings, and turn down opportunities. It can also make you feel anxious and stressed, even when things are going well.

"For years, I've been scared to want and to dream big things for myself. I saw my friends make moves and go for it and wanted to do the same...yet hesitated.

I talked to my good friend, Irene, about my disconnect between action and anxiousness and she recommended I talk to Donna Oard. Donna immediately made time for me. She asked me precise questions, challenged me with thought provoking questions and stories, and gave me actionable steps to move my needle one degree forward. The greatest gift she did was to allow me time and space to dream again. While I still have lots of work to do, spending time with Donna was a catalyst to my new season of dreaming big and working towards a greater vision. If you're ready to level up and make your dreams a fulfilling reality, Donna is the coach you need to call."
