Imposter Syndrome: What we learned from the Karmali Exchange
November 08, 2022
We had a wonderful evening with The Exchange x Joydrop, where we spent time with 6 topic experts learning about the pillars of business ownership and how it corelates to imposter syndrome. These topic experts asked some thought-provoking questions that challenged how we approach imposter syndrome.
Holly Singer, the founder of Milk Jar Candles, discussed product. Her insights in sales and marketing provided insights to take away into our own lives. She asked, "who is your target consumer? And how do you identify them?"
Clare Mackey, the Principal-Founder of Mackey Design Group, is a process expert. She challenged us to think of how our processes are currently in our business. We learned that if your team can only do the process with your help, it is not a process.
Leslie Kratz, the Co-Founder of CRO Software, discussed passion and plan. Her ask was how does your why impact your business plan? And where do you want to be three years from now?
Amanda Ovaici, a Lawyer, Owner of Cafe Alchemist, and Founder of F*ck up nights YYC, brought her expertise of people to the table. She discussed how to build and leverage your external relationships and challenged us to ask ourselves what our values are and do we hire for them?
Maeghen Cotterill, Owner of 5 Elements Martial Arts, brought her experience with business finance and profit to the discussion. She explored how often she views her financials and how to ensure you have controls in place.
Our own Shashi Behl, the founder of Joydrop, discussed worth and imposture syndrome. She challenged us to look at ways that we have felt held back. She discussed self-worth and how to challenge ideas to level up.
This was a wonderful night of discussion and fantastic people. Which one of these questions makes you think? How do you overcome imposter syndrome?
