Imposter Syndrome


Hello. I am a Level 1 (out of 2) certified nutrition coach (not a nutritionist or dietician). In my previous unrelated career, I was a registered professional geoscientist. I’m transitioning to a new career as a weight loss coach.

I’m currently looking into insurance options and was rejected by many companies, with a few offers that were much higher than I anticipated. My thoughts about this were, I’m in over my head, which leaves me feeling inadequate and has me contemplating quitting (and I don’t want to quit).

I know there are MANY successful weight loss coaches that aren’t registered nutritionists or dieticians, but my brain is telling me all kinds of things about how I’ll never be successful without these credentials. Would love some feedback on how I can stop my brain from going down this rabbit hole. Thank you!
