Hi, I’m Ines aka the Impostor Syndrome Terminator®

I’m a spiritual mindset and strategy coach and mentor. I help women conquer impostor syndrome, let go of subconscious limitations and to grow and scale their aligned and profitable business!

But that wasn't always the case: From depressed employee to struggling entrepreneur to smashing the 6-figure mark in sales online in 8 months: let me introduce myself.

Without knowing it, I spent 15 years experiencing various symptoms of impostor syndrome, which showed up in my life in many ways.

It started when I was 14: Despite managing to become an elite athlete and qualifying for national competitions in only 3.5 years, I still felt like I wasn’t playing well enough.

.

Instead of feeling proud of this accomplishment, I kept focusing on the fact that almost all the other players played better than me.

I felt like I didn’t belong and was afraid that the other players and coaches would wonder what I was doing there (the truth is, they couldn’t have cared less).

A few years later, at only 21, I got hired in the second biggest bank in Switzerland, in the ultra-high net worth wealth management department. Our "poorest" clients had $50 million in assets.

Despite being the youngest person ever to be hired in this team, I just thought it was “normal”. I didn’t know it back then, but this was a  typical sign of impostor syndrome.

Starting a masters degree didn’t help: I set higher and higher expectations for myself in terms of academic success, and wanted to achieve those goals without help from anyone else. I felt a sense of failure when students around me understood concepts faster than me.

All of this also triggered a hunger for more: More diplomas, more qualifications, more certifications, more skills and more professional experience I could put on my CV. 

On the outside, I had it all. But during all of those years, all I wanted was to feel legitimate, and that I had earned my success. I also wanted to feel like an expert in my field, and go for my goals without wondering if I was qualified enough.

The last straw came while I was writing my Master’s thesis. More precisely, when I started to do one of two things: either procrastinate, or spend 3 hours on a single paragraph, trying to improve every sentence, and find better references because I was terrified that my supervisor would reject my work and tell me it was a bunch of nonsense. 

At the same time, I went through a very tough break up. And to be honest, it wasn’t even a real break up. More like the end of a “situationship” (can you relate?) with someone I was briefly involved with. And fell into depression for the fifth time in 10 years.

I can confidently say it was my rock bottom. Not wanting to get out of bed for weeks kind of rock bottom.  I tried therapy, it didn’t work. And when the psychologist told me ” Ms. Padar, I think you need medication”, a voice in my mind screamed “Hell no, you need to get to the root cause of this!”

I read dozens of books to understand how the mind works, which helped a lot. But most importantly, found an alternative therapist who focused on uncovering limiting beliefs and negative programs at the SUBCONSCIOUS level! That allowed me to finally get to the root cause, buried under many repressed emotions of why I didn’t feel I deserved success, and didn’t feel good enough.

That was my breakthrough. Within only a few months, something major shifted.

The depression progressively left. The void became less and less. I cried more in 100 days than in my lifetime, and I healed from feeling not good enough. Or that I needed more external accomplishments to feel “legit”. And also became more confident in my work, competences and ability to contribute.

Most importantly, I realised that climbing the corporate ladder in the Swiss financial industry would never fulfil me. Working 40h a week in an office for the next 40 years with 5 weeks of holidays a year made me want to puke.

I wanted the freedom of grabbing my inflatable unicorn and go to the lake whenever I wanted. Travel the world and discover new places. Make more money then I’d ever make in the bank. Not having to choose between raising my future kids or focusing on my career. Be my own boss, and make my own rules.

Getting rid of my inner bullshit gave me the confidence to take a 180 degree turn.  I stepped out of my comfort zone, went backpacking solo 3 months in Latin America, and dropped my promising but boring career in finance to do what I love doing most:

Help other women master their subconscious mind and energy so they can create a life that they love.

Plot twist: Yay, I was an entrepreneur. But I wasn't really getting clients.

My new life as a business owner brought new challenges:

  • I was super confused: Facebook ads? Organic ? Youtube? Pinterest? Direct outreach? Instagram Dms? Posting twice a day or twice a week?

  • I didn’t feel comfortable charging what my services were worth in case people couldn’t afford it.

  • I was procrastinating about starting my social media platforms. Going live terrified me.

  • New business new impostor syndrome. I didn’t feel “legit” and became a bookaholic, constantly trying to extend my knowledge to feel like an expert and feel like whatever a client came up with, I could help them (flash news, it didn’t work).

  • I had no clue about marketing and wasn’t attracting clients. The ones I did attract were referrals from friends, and some of them were difficult clients blaming and complaining. 

  • I made approx 5k in 7 months and I felt like I had failed.

It was time for impostor syndrome ass-kicking part 2:

I worked on myself and used energy work and a complex form of hypnotherapy to SMASH my “Who am I to charge these prices or profile myself as an expert” inner BS and limiting beliefs at the subconscious level. Money blocks, not being able to receive, procrastination, you name it, I cleared it!

I said F*** YOU to impostor syndrome once and for all, and upgraded my belief system. And I also got rid of my ” I need to figure this out on my own to deserve my success” nonsense: I invested in myself and in my business with mentors and coaches, so I could have a clear action plan.

Long story short, I made 12k in 10 weeks within starting my social media platforms. I attracted my perfect clients on a high ticket offer, which created the financial freedom I’d been looking for. And from there, I launched more programs and the business grew to six figures in 8 months!

Today, my vision board manifested into a reality I didn’t even know was possible. I spend my time between beautiful Switzerland, and being a digital nomad around the world, serving amazing clients and working 4h a day on average. And I no longer worry about money, ever. 

My goal

My dream life has come true, and yours can too. Takes this from someone who was so depressed I couldn’t even get out of bed and never really had money. Success is available to everyone, regardless of their background. It all comes down to our belief system, subconscious programming and our energy.

I want you to know that you already have everything you need within yourself to create the life you want for yourself and your loved ones. It’s just a matter of letting go of what no longer serves you and expand what is already working for you so you can fulfil your full potential. 

When you use the power of the subconscious mind, sky is the limit . I’m so excited for your growth, whether it is through free resources like the hypnosis recordings or the podcast, or through one of the programs.

And most importantly, I want you to know that you don’t need to fit into the mold that society wants you to fit into. You don’t need to sacrifice things you love to be successful. You can be, do and have whatever you want. I can’t wait to meet you!

I want women like you to realize that you don’t have to spend the rest of your life stuck, feeling unsatisfied, and doubting yourself. A large contributor to success in business, and life in general in a strong sense of self-worth, knowing that you have a lot to offer, and have the confidence to go out there and ask for what you deserve.

Once you have this, not only will you feel incredible, you will also be very motivated to go after what you want, and unapologetically get the success you deserve.

And most importantly, I want you to know that you don’t need to fit into the mold that society wants you to fit into.
You will be the most successful when you are YOURSELF.
