Author and former Canadian TV Host Nancy Regan's New Book is "From Showing Off to Showing Up"

Today on the Thursday morning show we had a real, authentic conversation bubbling with vulnerability.

There’s a phrase. “Imposter Syndrome”. It’s described as feelings of self doubt and personal incompetence that persist despite your education, experience and accomplishments. To counter this you may work even HARDER – holding yourself to an EVER higher standard.

Nancy Regan is a professional communicator – her career includes tv and podcast including the national host of Good Morning Canada – interviewing some of the most famous people on the planet like Oprah and Madonna and Harrison Ford. But she too, has felt like an imposter.

Her new book is out (to be published in the US in March). From Showing Off to Showing Up – An Imposter’s journey from perfect to present.
