How do you become an expert?
I once was given a definition of the word Expert.
Ex = has been
Spurt = a gush of water
Expert = a has been gush of water
Are you an expert in your field? If you take the definition above, it's probably not something you would want to put on a resume.
How about a real definition? An expert is defined as a person who has special skill or knowledge in some particular field; a specialist; someone with authority in a subject area.
Do your customers view you as an expert? Do they come to you for advice? If not, why not? What are you doing to change that?
It is up to you to become the specialist.
