He is a con-man who impersonated a wide range of professionals including an airline pilot and a lawyer.
He also claims that he impersonated a Sociology Professor at Brigham Young University, without any of his students realising.
When he was asked how he get got away with it, he told police that he just read one chapter ahead of the students each lesson.
This is kinda inspiring when it comes to creating content online, because when it comes to sharing our knowledge we don't have to have a formal education, or be an expert.
You just gotta know how to take your students a step or two ahead of where they are now.
There are 3 types of teacher, that I know of. You'll probably fall into one of these, so there's no need to deceive anybody.
1. The actual expert - they've been there, done it, got the t-shirt.
2. The reporter - someone who sources out the info you need, and separates the good from the bad.
3. The role model - someone who's also learning, and is sharing their journey.
The important thing, imo, is to start doing and don't let self-doubt hold you back from sharing the things you love.
