/ˈʃɑː.lə.tən/ (noun)

someone who pretends to have special skills, false expert, imposer, fake, fraud, swindler, quack, counterfeit, pretender, con artist, sham

Any and all of these events could occur when in the clutches of a charlatan out to make a buck on your efforts, and many more beside. I myself and people I know have been through all of these or know people who have. The entertainment industry is a tough mistress, and too many people who have no business in it make life far tougher and more demoralising than it needs to be for those with genuine passion but no nepotism to rely on for a way in. The old adage that it’s not what you know but who is sadly true and too many people take advantage of it for their own ends, consequently destroying hopes and dreams in the process.
