Rochelle Carter is an award-winning entrepreneur and award-winning/ bestselling author, specializing in authorpreneurship and helping professionals using her "Brand Your Expertise with a Book(tm)" program.
Her #1 Bestseller, The Seven Step Guide to Authorpreneurship, culminated her behind the scenes efforts to help authors. More importantly, it was the moment she went from simple entrepreneurship to innovator. Breaking the "rules of publishing", she put herself on the cover and accepted whatever came next, becoming a leader in the very industry she thought she had to hide from. Rochelle realized that imposter syndrome is one of many silent roadblocks to success. It has an even more significant impact on the Black community, where we are constantly told who we are and what we can and cannot do. Together we can change that narrative.
