csa1-1Welcome to the Creative Studio Academy.

This is the podcast to help you learn and explore how you can start and improve your skills with online content creation.

My name is Joshua Rivers and will be your guide on this journey.

Impostor syndrome

I started this podcast with the sentence, “I’m an imposter.”

Let me explain. This is a challenge set forth from a fellow podcaster, Cliff Ravenscraft. He is the host of many podcasts, including the Podcast Answer Man. He addresses and answers people’s questions about podcasting, and he addressed the issue of the “imposter syndrome” recently.

The “imposter syndrome” is basically the idea of someone pretending to be something that they are not. For example, I am not an absolute expert with online content creation, but I would be an imposter if I was pretending that I was.

Cliff’s challenge was to his listeners that were starting a new podcast to start with the phrase, “I’m an imposter.”

But, like I said, I’m not really an imposter. I’m not pretending to be an expert in the area of online content creation, which is the theme of this podcast and the associated website, CreativeStudio.Academy.

What does this mean for you?

It means that you don’t have to be an expert either. You can go out and share what you know with others that are coming behind you. Yes, you still need to learn more. But you also have a lot that you can share. Even if there are others out there sharing the same thing, no one else has your exact experience and personality. You bring something fresh to the table.
