What People Are Saying

Imposter syndrome used to hold me back from my potential and I wish I had this book years ago. Using easy to follow exercises and prompts, this book provides a roadmap that can help you move from burnout to self-empowerment. I particularly like how Max uses their own stories and journey to model this transformation.
