I’m sick. I’ve got a case of comparison-itis and imposter syndrome, yo.
And lemme tell you- the struggle is real.
You can come hear ALL about my personal issue in the BONUS podcast episode (ep. 108.5)
But here’s what I found and I hope it speaks to you:
“I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.”
EGO says: She’s better than me, my show must not be as good as hers, I should do it that way...
y’all... this verse.
The bible says: It’s not about HER it’s about YOU. We are being called to do HIS work, not ours. I recognize that when I compare, I’m letting my flesh and ego take precedence over the work I’m here to do.
“Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else.”
This one was a gut check! Self-inventory!
Basically, we can do our best and compare ourselves to... ourselves. If I can strive to do my best, rest, pray, and find fulfillment in the journey - it's all gravy, baby.
Next up: Imposter syndrome. When I decided to let my Christian flag fly (so to speak), I decided to fully embody it. Even though I didn’t know every book of the Bible or verses word for word... and I felt (and I still feel) like a fraud! How can I speak truth & God’s word? I don’t know enough... I’m going to be exposed! I shouldn’t have a Christian podcast... I’m not “Christian enough” because I like Zumba, the enneagram and Kanye!
Spiral... spiral... spiral...
Anyone else’s brain work like this?
“In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you.”
Just this. When we get that nudge from Holy Spirit it's not saying “know it all, then act”. It’s saying ACT NOW with as much faith as God gave you. God qualifies the called!
So to those of you hiding out, worrying about if you’re good enough, you ARE. Because God says so. Let’s keep pushing sister. Blinders on, faith on high!

I launched my podcast in 2018 after searching for a way to scale my coaching business and grow my following in a faster, more authentic way. I decided on podcasting because I have kids (aka. video isn't my jam), and because audio is growing insanely fast and I saw an emerging trend. Last, because committing to a podcast was my way of showing up consistently and dedicating myself to my mission.
What has podcasting done for my business? Well, my podcast grew my revenue by over 98%! My community has grown by thousands and it has allowed me to touch more people than I ever could have imagined.
