    I really enjoyed reading this. I am surprised you too have imposed syndrome yet I’m not. It’s crazy how imposter syndrome works. And agreed on the flip side about UNqualified people!

    LOL “I’m a woman who speaks like a woman!”

    On the tips part, I would say making sure the scope is aligned w one’s resources, either outsourcing like you said or if not possible, embracing the scrappy stretchy mindset vs. the gotta do it all mindset, such a cliche but each time I launch s.th new, my default response is to get crippled with trying to do things the “right” way.
    Around two years ago, my friends and I decided to start a podcast about our motherhood journies. We researched the content, planned the episodes, did the logo, got the gear, … etc We even went as far to pitching the podcast to several networks. Two years later and all we have is a deserted Insta page @omahat_alyoum, we never launched because the scope/standards were not aligned with how busy our lives were, it was unrealistic. Last night, we decided to narrow the topics even further and scrap all the overhead, no nerdy gear, no advanced research, just our unpolished voices

      I love your new plan! There’s a time & a place for perfectly produced. But personally, I love a good chatty unpolished podcast.
