Hi PH, Imposter Syndrom Life is a collection of articles and quotes on imposter syndrome to help you overcome it. I also struggled with it, and wrote about it myself, which is the featured article on the site! The product was also inspired by @amrith - I read his comment on dealing with Imposter Syndrome in a Maker Goals task, so I wanted to finished this one off and share it! Glad it's out there now. 💬Update: Just added a chat section to share your own stories and be part of the site. 🛠MakerBadge 🛠 I'm also using 'MakerBadge' on this product, which I launched today too, with @chriskonings - please check it out! MakerBadge is the little badge in the corner of the site to show who made the product, and it's open source 😃

@graeme_fulton thank you for making this website and sharing your story -- very relatable. it's hard when you feel you don't belong anywhere, but it brings only great things when you can make things all by yourself.

@mightyalex 🙏🏽thanks Alex! Yeah many people go through this alone, and I think a collective place of lonely thinkers is quite nice - I think the word is dichotomy? 🤔being alone does have benefits than with the crowd though for sure

This is great Graeme! I've been through this with just about every job role I've had. When i joined IBM, I thought 'Master Inventor' was some kind of god-like genius employee. Then I 'stumbled across' my first patent. And then another. Before I knew it I was a Master Inventor too. I just braved it and took the steps. Nice to read other people's stories.

@rob_breeds Hey Rob! Haha I thought that of the Master Inventor at IBM too. I thought they'd be very unapproachable and too important, but you dispelled that perception for me. That's why it's so cool to read these stories of people who achieved a lot, and are really down to earth, and know they felt the same at some point. Makes things seem more possible! Funny thing is, when I was making the app, I wasn't going to include myself ..."Am I an imposter imposter" 🙈😂

I had not heard of this before. Here’s the Wikipedia link on the subject:

@rmagrino to be honest, I hadn't heard of imposter syndrome before I wrote my article about it. I only realised after reading Julie Zhou's article. Thanks for sharing the definition..maybe I should add that to the site..or the mystery is also quite nice
