The Fraud Police

In her book “The art of asking”, Amanda Palmer, famous singer / songwriter talks about what she called the “fraud police”. The fraud police was this voice inside each and everyone of us telling us that we were imposters. Thinking about it, I recalled hearing that inner voice in my head. I heard it often, specifically when I’d speak to a person about my career, I’d feel uneasy as though there was some kind of imposter talking. I wasn’t completely established in my career trajectory technically just yet, my portfolio was still kind of in development, my income wasn’t substantial…
But then again, I would not portray myself in a specific way if I was not confident enough to take on the role.
