It makes no sense to take credit for what other people have done. For example, why would someone claim to write books when the truth is they’ve hired ghostwriters to write the books for them? I mean, it’s cool to be an author if you’re actually an author. Why would someone claim to be a genius about taxes when the truth is they’ve hired tax attorneys and accountants to advise them on the tax code and do their tax returns for them? I mean, it’s cool to be a financial wizard if you’re, in fact, a financial wizard. Why would someone want to build themselves up to be something they are not? Where’s the fun in that, huh?
Humble and honest, not so much
