    So you're not good enough. Now what?

    Carmel was sure she was going to be fired. It was clear to her that she was out of her depth & only a matter of time until someone found out. She should just quit...

    That's what she though, but not what she did. Carmel changed her thinking & put herself on the path to helping hundreds of other suffering from self doubt.
