And all of a sudden, people are referring to you as an expert in the field. When this first happens, you may even feel like an imposter, a fraud. But don’t worry.
As long as you stay focused on helping make things better, on helping others, on elevating good work (whether it’s yours or someone else’s) that you find “out there”… as long as you do that, you won’t be a fraud.
Because that’s genuine work, even if it doesn’t feel like work to you. And as hard as it is to believe, it’s not easy enough that anyone can do it, because very few other people are doing it.
Otherwise, who would you be helping in the first place?
