On a more personal note, but nonetheless a very important lesson for many people, is to believe in yourself. Phoebe learned to back herself, own her skills and not let that little voice in the back of her head that told her ‘you’re not good enough’ win. Otherwise known as imposter syndrome, the feeling of not being qualified or capable enough to do something can be a real barrier to success. However, by recognizing her own strengths and accomplishments, she overcame this (well, most of the time) and is now positioned as an industry leader in home staging.
