Hey Photogs! Have you ever thought to yourself, 'I'm not good enough, why do people keep hiring me?' Yet, they just keep hiring you. You could be experiencing Imposter Syndrome, where you constantly doubt your accomplishments and have fears that you are a 'fraud'. On the flip side, we all know someone who preaches from the top of their ivory tower, but their photo quality is down in the basement. This is called the Dunning Kruger Effect, and it's just as dangerous. Mike talks with Wendi Dunford about both of these scenarios, what could be the underlining cause, and what we can do to combat those nasty voices.
