James Collins, Senior Linux Systems Engineer at CrunchTime!, was never a "risk lover" growing up. However, looking back on the past few years, he has made leaps into multiple roles, trying out what interests him and broadening his skills along the way. That mindset didn't happen overnight. James discusses that transformation, and his "imposter sydrome"; a mental state he believes leads many of us to become a working class of Insecure Overachievers . About the Guest:
