The worst advice I ever heard?
“Fake it till you make it.”
You’ll never make it if you’re faking it.
If you’re faking it, you’re deceiving people.
The best business advice I ever got?
Look at what you’re doing and think:
Am I honestly adding value to people?
If you are, you’re on a good track.
If you’re not, you might be making money, but it will be short-term, and eventually people find out and things come crashing down around you.
I’ve never done the “fake it till you make it” thing.
I don’t like fake.
But I have done business without adding value.
It didn’t last.
