- Fake it till you make it. just keep trying, we all started scared.
- Focus on what you bring to the table, not what you don’t know
- Own your success. you earned your place here. not everyone can do this job
- Lay it all out on the table. being wrong doesn’t make you a fake, or any less qualified. It simply makes you a learner.
