It is common for new podcasters to doubt themselves and feel insecure about what they can deliver. Because of this, they end up making a podcast that podcasts what they think listeners want rather than what they want to share. They add to the noise instead of giving out new information to their listeners.
In this episode, Jaemin Frazer shares his insights about why people feel like they are not good enough. He also talks about the seven essential practices in overcoming insecurity. We also discuss how to stay true to yourself and more.
To all the listeners, especially if you are dealing with insecurity, tune in, sit back, and enjoy the podcast.
