Ohayo | The shitty bench 🏕️

The audio diary on how Lera and I battle impostor syndrome.

Upgrade to listen
Bring your own Prosecco 🥂 Ohayo is a perfect kick-start for your Saturday morning: short, fun, usually has a clever idea and a burst of emotions.

Know what impostor syndrome is? Lera is from Belarus, so when it hits her, she feels like a gypsy. And when it leaves, she calls herself a mermaid.

Here’s a bit of the context:

  1. please give money to us, mermaids

  2. I recognized you...


  4. f..k HOW?

It takes a slap or two to reset Lera and I to mermaids and then we naturally shift back to feeling gypsies. Again and again we feel like talking and explaining out what is obvious to us for the 1000th time -

  • Community-led approach helps your business grow faster

  • Communities is how your game, your art, your craft finds a fan base

  • People and relations is how your online-classes can make the biggest impact and transform lives

People often nod back and buy our consulting because I look like I know what I am talking about or because someone referred me. Not because they trust the narrative.

The text in this letter is how Lera and I fall down into feeling gypsy-impostors. The audio is about how we’re getting back to mermaids mode.

Have a beautiful Saturday,…
