Have you ever felt like a fraud and the whole world is going to find out that you’re really not as competent as other people think? Do you feel like your success is because of luck or timing but not your own skills? Then you are not alone! This concept is well known and is called the Impostor Syndrome.
This talk covers how the Impostor Syndrome affects competent people and Berglind shares her experience of suffering from it when she still felt like a fake after launching an app which 18 million people used worldwide.
