The Imposters with Natasha Stewart
Natasha Stewart is the strategic powerhouse and mother of four at the helm of Business Jump; an online business that provides a platform for other mothers to jumpstart their dreams of running a profitable business from home.
Nat regularly bares all with her tribe of a collective forty thousand mothers and business owners, sharing stories of not just her learnings in business but the real and raw events that shaped who she is today, such as an unlawful firing, postnatal depression, two miscarriages, a twin pregnancy and weaves within it how she mindfully fell down and put herself back together throughout it all. Most recently, with the birth of her twins, Nat continues to generously document her rich and colourful life for the benefit of her Business Jump and Remarkable Business Mums community.
This is why I asked her to have a chat with me about imposter syndrome and the fears people have about speaking up as their true self.
Recently one of Natasha's social media posts highlighted to me her strength and experience in this area and this forms the basis of our conversation today.
The Imposters with Natalie Tolhopf
Natalie does imperfection perfectly. Actually, no, she stuffs up imperfection imperfectly.
Oh I'm confused!
Put it this way, done is better than perfect is something Natalie encourages and I for one LOVE THAT.
Natalie is energetic and a fast talking kiwi so hold onto your undies as I navigate embracing imperfection and how it can ease the pain of imposter syndrome.
The quote Natalie fumbled through like a true disaster, that I promised to include in the show notes was "A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms' Zen Shin.

The Imposters with Kasia Bourke
What can I say about Kasia Bourke? Gloriously, delightful and beautiful in every way. I could talk to Kasia all damn day. She truly does sprinkle a little love everywhere she goes.
Today I talked to Kasia about imposter syndrome and she's a fantastic person to talk to about this because not only is her business based on spirituality (which can be knocked around by non-believers) but thanks to that spirituality Kasia has some beautiful perspectives on confidence and imposter syndrome that I am sure you will love.
There were two links mentioned in the recording, one of them being my angry video when I completely lost my temper thanks to technology and had to do a live announcing that I would not be doing the session that day - a test in anger management that's for sure!
The other was Kasia's gorgeous Elephant story which I am pasting below:
I've shared my favourite story with you before but I feel that now more than ever it needs to be re told to really anchor in this
𝕃𝕖𝕥 𝕞𝕖 𝕥𝕖𝕝𝕝 𝕪𝕠𝕦 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕤𝕥𝕠𝕣𝕪 𝕠𝕗 𝕥𝕙𝕖 6 𝕓𝕝𝕚𝕟𝕕 𝕞𝕖𝕟 𝕒𝕟𝕕 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕖𝕝𝕖𝕡𝕙𝕒𝕟𝕥
Six blind men were curious: "what is this Elephant? That everybody speaks of?" so they were lead to an elephant and as they stood around him..
The first man touched the tusk and said: "it's a spear!"
The second Man touched the elephant's leg and said: "No! It's a giant tree!"
The third man wrapped his arms around the trunk and screamed: "It's a giant snake!"
The forth man stood where the ears were flapping and he put his face up and smiled: "ahhh! No, it's a fan."
The fifth man moved his hands along the Elephant's belly and said: "Rubbish! It's a wall!"
The sixth man grabbed the tail and started to swing it around: "Ah! You guys are nuts! It's a rope!"
And so they argued well into the night who was right...
There is no absolute truth - All perspectives are true. We experience the world in our own unique way. We've put it through our own filters of life experiences, stories, believes and values...and so it becomes our individual experience of the world but nonetheless it is just a partial experience
There's no total, absolute truth
Believing something strongly doesn't make it THE truth
It just becomes YOUR truth
Let's remember this now more than ever
