👉 Knowing Your Worth: Don’t Set Yourself On Fire To Keep Others Warm with Lex Lofthouse

Am I doing enough? Am I even doing it right? How can I do it better? What the hell is Impostor Syndrome and why do I have it? What’s a Work/Life Balance? Huh, now I’m having a breakdown...

After putting her career first for the best part of a decade and then having a minor breakdown, Lex Lofthouse was compelled to make herself a number one priority.

In her talk Lex will discuss Impostor Syndrome and how she learned to fail correctly. We’ll discuss negative feedback and how to deal with it, toxic environments, burnout and ‘crunch’. Plus we’ll finally figure out that work/life balance thing once and for all.
