In today's episode I am joined by Leora Ruzin, CMB, AMP, Founder and Owner of Ruzin Creative, LLC, as we delve into the topic of imposter syndrome. Leora is a lending executive with extensive experience in mortgage production, compliance, secondary marketing, underwriting and back-office operations. She is also a passionate advocate for financial freedom and housing finance reform, and winner of several prestigious industry awards, including Housing Wire’s 2020 “Women of Influence” and National Mortgage Professional Magazine’s 2020 “Women of Inspiration”.

During our conversation, we explore the nuances of imposter syndrome, its impact on personal and professional growth, and how to overcome it by embracing authenticity and finding a supportive community.

Leora shares her own experiences with imposter syndrome and how she has learned to navigate it while pursuing her career and advocating for causes she is passionate about.
