Being an Expert

You hear a lot of people say that if you want to be taken seriously in your industry, you have to be an expert in your field. You have to have all the right credentials and know everything there is to know. When you’re “all that,” when you do it right every time, people will consider you an expert.

Maybe so.

Maybe not.

One of the entrepreneurial women we respect and admire—Wendy Achatz, founder of Achatz Homemade Pie Company—was featured in a panel discussion recently, in which she was asked, “What makes you an expert?”

She looked the questioner in the eye and replied, “I’ve made a lot of mistakes. That’s what has made me an expert.”

What makes YOU an expert in your field?
