Imposter Syndrome

I get to meet a variety of people working in the insurance industry. At G5, we call ourselves “people people” for a reason. Our clients come from all over the county. Some need help insuring their apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and others need coverage for their large scale food processing business. Some request a policy for their cottage in the countryside while others ask us for a quote on their working ranch in California.

Aside from all being wonderful people, we see a common thread among our variety clients: everyone has questions. Whether they’re a twenty-something first time home buyer who has never purchased insurance or a seasoned business owner who we’ve worked with for years,

Everyone. Has. Questions.

It’s easy to look at someone from the outside and assume they know it all, have it all together, are more experienced, or have a higher level of expertise than you. If you’re like me and struggle with imposter syndrome, I thought you may benefit from this reminder.

No one knows it all. We’re all evolving humans. We all lean on each other by asking for help, learn from each other by borrowing expertise, and try our best to figure it out as we go. That’s the best part of being people people.
