Imposter Syndrome – And What To Do About It

Do you ever hear a little voice in your head saying, “I’m not ready. It’s already been done. I just got lucky. What will everyone think? Do I know enough to be here?” If any of these sound familiar, then you have been impacted by imposter syndrome. These fraudy thoughts influence how you show up in your business, from pursuing clients and raising your prices to starting a new venture and sharing your ideas with the world. 

 

The good news is you can do something about it! In this interactive session we will discuss how imposter syndrome impacts you and practical tools to manage imposter syndrome so they don’t hold you back, including how to:

  • Quiet your inner critic

  • ·Recover fast when doubt and imposter syndrome strike

  • Act even when you don’t feel confident

Any computer you use for your business probably contains a product made by Intel. They're known for manufacturing computer chips, and even created the world's first commercial microprocessor chip back in 1971.

 

Today they make hardware components for desktop and laptop computers; server, network, and cloud platforms; Internet-of-Things (IoT) platforms; and memory. They also produce software and driver updates, which are available for download from their website. In other words, their products help businesses like yours thrive.

 

If computers' speed and capability double every two years with advances in microchip technology (Moore's Law), it's primarily because of Intel's contributions to the world.

Lenovo makes and sells more personal computers than any other company in the world. They're a global technology corporation with a product line consisting of commercial and consumer PCs, servers and workstations, and a family of mobile devices, smartphones, and tablets. If you need computers for your business or you're in the market for upgrades, look no further than Lenovo.

 

Do you remember IBM computers with their cow pattern boxes? Well, Lenovo acquired that business in 2005. They immediately took over the production of ThinkPads, a line of business-oriented laptops and tablets, and expanded the Think family of commercial products.

 

Known for their reliability, ThinkPads were the only laptops allowed on the International Space Station for years. And that just goes to show you; if they're good enough for outer space, they'll be good enough for any business on earth.

Let's be honest with ourselves here. You've probably heard of Microsoft before. The tech industry titan already touches most aspects of business in one way or another. Whether it be through their computers and devices, their software, and productivity solutions, or the cloud, Microsoft is reinventing business processes and helping to lead the world through digital transformation. 

 

The Microsoft Office suite of apps is already an essential tool for any small business. With Microsoft 365, all of those apps are made accessible wherever you are as long as you have internet access. And with cloud storage and sharing, you can collaborate in real-time with your team, even when you're apart. 

 

Along with Email, Calendar, and teamwork hubs and appointment booking, cyber threat protection, and device management solutions, Microsoft provides the capabilities that small businesses need. You won't want to miss what they have to say.

If you're a serious gamer or know someone who is, you're probably familiar with Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). They're a publicly-traded company that develops microprocessors and graphics processing units. Gamers favor AMD because their products are among the best on the market, but they don't just design products for gaming.

 

AMD's high-performance computing, graphics, and visualization technologies are also integrated into cloud servers and immersive platforms that they hope one day will lead to surround computing - or controlling computers with your face, voice, and gestures. Cool, right? They devote a lot of their efforts to research and innovation to make this a reality. 

 

Just imagine what implications this sort of technology could have for your business. If you assign a task with the wave of a hand, imagine what it could do to your productivity.

A company that makes the technology that powers the internet. That's Cisco Systems, Inc. Cisco makes and manufactures networking hardware, software, and telecommunications equipment. They're experts in providing connectivity for businesses like yours.

 

They also provide other tech and services around the Internet-of-Things, domain security, and energy management. Services like OpenDNS, which provides domain name system resolution and phishing protection; as well as Webex, a web conferencing and videoconferencing application. They value securing your data and transforming your infrastructure so that your teams can be more globally collaborative. 

It's more important than ever to keep your cool and keep going. Especially when it comes to your computers, servers, and data centers, and that's where APC by Schneider Electric comes in. Their uninterruptible power supplies and cooling products help keep your systems up and running and cool. Think of them as a big surge protector with accessories for the most critical aspects of your business.

Aruba is a wireless networking company under the Hewlett Packard umbrella. They're a leader in edge-to-cloud networking technology, which uses AI to distribute data processing needs among a group of devices connected. This allows each device to perform a smaller processing task instead of relying on one centralized server to fulfill all processing duties. It's the "many-hand-make-light-work" approach, and it could be an excellent way to structure your network, particularly if you have branches or more remote workers than usual these days!

CyberPower Systems (USA), Inc., designs and manufactures a high-quality line of award-winning products, including uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, power distribution units (PDUs), surge protectors, mobile charging devices, connectivity devices and Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTx) backup power solutions.

"With great power comes great responsibility." Both Eaton Corporation and Uncle Ben from Spiderman believe this to be true. Particularly considering Eaton specializes in power management technology and services. Their mission is to improve the quality of life and the environment through providing sustainable solutions for managing electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical power with safety, efficiency, and reliability top of mind. They may not be superheroes themselves, but they indeed share many of the same values.

Standing desks and monitor mounts are just some of the Ergotron products and solutions that help people thrive in healthcare, education, and general office environments. They have over 200 patents and use human-centered design principles to marry technology with movement for the ultimate working relationship. If your business could benefit from innovative products that improve how your people work, you should absolutely take a look at what they have to offer.

Fortinet is synonymous with cybersecurity. They're a company dedicated to developing network security products and services like firewalls, antivirus, intrusion prevention, and endpoint security. They offer one of the broadest training programs in the industry and are continually evolving to meet new and burgeoning threats. They secure some of the largest organizations around the world, and they can certainly help your business take on the ever-increasing performance and security requirements necessary.

Whether your organization is early in its journey or well on its way to digital transformation, Google solutions & technologies help chart a path to success by enabling your customers to seamlessly collaborate anytime, anywhere and from any device. Google G Suite just got better – introducing Google Workspace where everything you need to get anything done is now in one place. Google Workspace seamlessly integrates all of the core elements of work so your users can communicate and collaborate easily and securely, from wherever they are. Google Chrome Enterprise unlocks the business capabilities of Chrome OS, Chrome Browser, and Chrome devices, freeing IT to power their cloud workforce.

Hikvision is all about state-of-the-art video surveillance and security for your business. They engineer and offer cutting-edge technologies, including artificial intelligence/machine learning applied to industrial automation, robotic vision, and advanced smart home solutions connected to a cloud platform. It's a little like the high-tech security systems you'd recognize from the movies but in real life. Maybe it's time you trusted Hikvision to create one of those systems for your business?

The Lenovo Data Center Business Group (DCG) is a core business group under the Lenovo umbrella, separate from their personal computing and devices business. It includes their servers, storage, networking, and services business. They provide the technology, tools, and partnership your small business needs to make the most of all the available data out there. This includes cloud computing solutions, analytics, and AI, SaaS, and smarter infrastructure solutions.

Lexmark creates printing and imaging products, software, and services focusing on simplicity, security, savings, and sustainability. Their innovative imaging technologies can help your business print, secure, and manage information with ease. With IoT and cloud-enabled solutions, they've been able to help businesses in retail, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, education, government, and more.

LG Electronics has a wide variety of innovative products, from home appliances to mobile phones, commercial displays, air conditioning systems, solar energy solutions, home entertainment systems, and vehicle components. The possibilities for what they can provide for any business are vast. Perhaps you could start with new LG monitors for your employees. Or perhaps an LG TV for displaying company information and news. Take a closer look, and you'll agree, Life is Good with LG as a vendor.

Connecting you and your business to computers and digital experiences is what drives Logitech. They design products like wireless mice, keyboards, headsets, webcams, as well as Bluetooth speakers, tablet accessories, gaming controllers, universal remotes, and more - Many things that could be useful to you and your employees. If you're in the market for high-quality computer accessories - even if you aren't - there's no reason why you shouldn't take a look at what they have to offer.

As a global technology leader, the Samsung Display Division provides a diverse portfolio of enterprise technologies including smart signage, LED screens, videowalls, hospitality TVs, and monitors. Samsung puts the customer at the core of everything we do by delivering comprehensive products, solutions and services across diverse industries including retail, healthcare, hospitality, education, sports and government.  The Samsung Display Division is committed to helping customers realize the promise of a digital business.

When you're fixing something around the house, or you need specific nuts and bolts for a home improvement project you're working on, you go to a hardware store with fingers crossed they'll have what you need. Similarly, when you need hard-to-find computer parts, A/V products, cables, and server management solutions, you go to StarTech. They make it easy to find what your business needs by carrying parts that bridge old and new tech products. This is meaningful for small businesses that want to keep legacy products working, instead of buying more expensive, newer tech.

WatchGuard is a leader in network security. They make enterprise-grade security accessible to companies of all types and sizes through simplicity and reliability. They offer multi-factor authentication, secure cloud wifi, and endpoint security solutions - protecting remote employees as well as your teams on site. Their hardware products are recognizably red and stand as a warning to those posing threats that they will be thwarted.
