ARE YOU FAKING IT?
It’s called Imposter Syndrome. More people than you can imagine experience it. I do, and I’ll bet, you do too.
It’s that nagging feeling that people are going to “find you out.” They will recognize that you are not as good as you claim to be, and they will expose you as an imposter.
Imposter syndrome is one of the most destructive narratives that we create in our minds. It keeps us from trying new things. It stifles our creativity. It denies us our innate greatness. It steals our lives.

MICHELLE’S FAVORITE QUOTE
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of the deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

FREEDOM! We all want it. People fight for it. They live and die for it. So, we must all know what it is.
The truth is that if you ask one hundred people to define freedom, you will get one hundred different answers. All of them are valid. All of them are right.
The guest on today’s podcast is John Krotec, a man who is passionate about freedom. He’s an entrepreneur, writer, and army veteran.
He gained his understanding of freedom by fighting tough battles in his own life and winning. His journey highlights the theme of this show, Change Your Story, Change Your Life.
When John abused alcohol, he had to change his story. When he suffered a brain injury in a car crash, he had to change his story. When his marriage was on the rocks, he had to change his story. He did it every time and grew into the inspiring person he is today.
You’ll gain a lot by listening to John’s story. You’ll learn what it really mens to be bigger than your circumstances. You’ll come away with a greater appreciation for a business model that marries contribution and profit.
John created a company based on that model called Greenzone Hero. It honors and supports veterans who fought for our freedom. Greenzone Hero also gives veterans a platform to share their stories.
You’ll tap into your innate sense of compassion for war veterans who have sacrificed their well being and their lives to create more freedom and abundance for all of us.
John may even ignite a new entrepreneurial flame in you that can enrich your business, your life, and the lives of others.
