Copywriting and training freelance copywriter Tiffany Markman reflects on this phenomenon.

Well, you could be suffering from Imposter Syndrome.

Speaking to Refiloe Mpakanyane Copywriting and training freelance copywriter Tiffany Markman says she will be hosting a webinar aimed at tackling this phenomenon on Thursday 21 October.

Imposter Syndrome is a feeling that you are not as good as the public might think you are and that those secret feelings of being a fraud will manifest and people will know.

Unlike other self esteem elements or self confidence, imposter syndrome manifests in people who are extremely capable.
