The Leapers Little Guide to... Imposter Syndrome

Imposter Syndrome affects over 70% of people, but what is it, and how can you tackle the phenomenon?

A downloadable PDF, based upon conversations in the Leapers community, along with tested tangible behaviours and techniques which help - this free Leapers Little Guide helps you understand and tackle one of the common stressors of the self-employed.


When you're working for yourself, self-doubt can be all too common.

Whilst it isn’t just a self-employed issue, because we are are often working on our own - the feelings, thoughts and behaviours attached to Imposter Syndrome can become a bigger problem, especially if they hold us back from doing our best work, or we don't have others around to challenge or discuss our thoughts.

So, we've written a Leapers Little Guide to Imposter Syndrome, downloadable as a PDF - containing an overview of what Imposter Phenomenon is, stories from our members on their experiences and advice, and tips and techniques for reducing its impact upon your work.


Pay it forward, or pay what it's worth

We aren't funded, we don't generate an income, and have supported over 10,000 visitors in the last 12 months.
