Imposter syndrome is a common affliction for comic creators and humans in all walks of life. In this mastermind style session, Karla Medrano, a self-styled “noob” to the world of creating comics shares her struggles with having the confidence to grow an audience. Luckily, a roundtable of creators who have all been there share what has helped them battle imposter syndrome and have success in the industry.
Highlights of This Session Include:
- The challenges of a creator who only recently discovered the wonders of the medium of comics.
- How imposter syndrome can hold creators back and what to do about it?
- Key mindset shifts needed to overcome limiting self-beliefs and find your voice.
- Plus: How to turn your perceived weaknesses into strengths!

Okay, creators, I have a question for you…
Right now, how many people are there on this planet who know exactly what it is that you’re trying to create this week, this month, this year, and in the next five years and in your lifetime?
And how many of those people ALSO want AND can help you to achieve those big dreams… and are regularly thinking about what they can do to help you on your mission?
Right now, do you have other creators in your corner who you trust to offer good, knowledgeable support and advice about the issues and struggles you face as a comic creator?
Are these creators who are always going to tell it to you straight, even if it’s not what you want to hear, but what you need to hear to level up?
And are you meeting with these people on a regular consistent basis to talk about these things?
Seriously, how many people do you have in your world right now who fit that full description?
If the answer is “NOT ENOUGH”, then I want you to imagine that there was a small group of high performing creators, who you really respect and you admire, and they constantly had you on their minds.
Imagine you were meeting with them regularly for mutual support, brainstorming and accountability.
Would that make a difference in your creative business and in your life?
If so, then I want to invite you to learn more about the ComixLaunch mastermind groups starting up in January.
Just go to ComixLaunch.com/mastermind to get on the interest list. We’ll be accepting applications for just a short time in December to fill brand new groups who start meeting in January.
A ComixLaunch Mastermind Group could be just the thing you’re looking for to have a massive creative breakthrough in the new year.
So again, ComixLaunch.com/mastermind is where you’ll find all that information.
You’ll get on the interest list and potentially get into an awesome ComixLaunch Mastermind group of your own, and hit the ground running with us in January.
What are the top three lessons you’ve learned over the past couple of years? Can you share them with creators who are a bit behind you on their journeys?
