Faking It

You can't get very far by completely faking it. Someone with more knowledge, more connections, more something, will call you out.

But in the process of not knowing something, just a little faking it goes a long way. Because if you know a little, you know where to look to find a little more...in order to get better at faking it.

You fake it a little further, and then you go find information to make the faking it even more believable. Because what you are learning becomes your new truth.

All of a sudden, without meaning to, you become a quasi-expert. And then you REALLY have something to talk about.
