Cookbook Love Podcast

Aug 3, 2023

Welcome to the latest episode of our podcast. In today's show, we're continuing our Summer Roadblock Series with the second challenge: Who am I to do this?

Before we get started, if you're a food or nutrition expert looking to write a cookbook and get paid for it, but you're unsure where to start, how to spend your time, or what publishers are looking for, we have a free training session that you'll love. This training covers the three common mistakes cookbook writers make, the four steps you should take to make your work appealing to publishers, and the best publishing path to choose if you don't want to spend your time or money on editing, design, and printing. You can access the on-demand training by registering here. Within just 45 minutes, you'll learn how to use your time wisely and create a cookbook platform, concept, and proposal that publishers will love.

Ok back to Roadblock #2 - who am I to write this book, and get published, is my voice worth being heard or a variation - my voice isn’t worth being heard. Sometimes this is called imposter syndrome. Another name for imposter syndrome is the fraud phenomenon. It is a feeling of self-doubt and inadequacy despite evidence of one's competence and accomplishments. People experiencing imposter syndrome often fear being exposed as fraud or impostor, even when they are highly skilled and accomplished. It can be a common experience for high-achieving individuals. Today, we'll embark on a journey of self-reflection, awareness, and growth as we delve into the prevalence and common characteristics of imposter syndrome. I’ll share some personal experiences that will help shed light on the human side of this phenomenon.
