Have you ever heard that expression? It says that if you don’t know how to write for example then you can say that you do even though that you don’t until you can really write or anything else you can think of.
This advice would have worked pre-internet since people didn’t have a place to search for you in the blink of an eye and you were able to fool more people.
Not so much right now, unless you don’t have social media account (which I highly doubt) there is no way you can fool someone about what you think you know since they can search you up or search what you are talking about and see if you are lying or not.
But I have a solution for all of those who want to be doing that kind of scheme and that is to go up on Google and learn what is necessary to be what you are supposedly saying that you are!
Man, there are so many free courses and videos on Youtube to learn at least a bit from what you want to be doing! You don’t have to “wing it” until you feel like you know what you are doing, you can actually know a bit of what you are doing beforehand!
Don’t listen to those people that say that you should fake knowledge since it will only get you so far!
Work hard and people will notice it. Let your experience talk for itself and great things will happen!
But if all you want is to be mediocre then, by all means, keep faking it and you will surely make it. Not where you want but where you should be.
It’s your choice!
Much love to every single one of you!
