What is an expert?

Someone asked me the other day, “what are you an expert at?”  I had to stop and think.  I have done lots of different things over the years, but am I an expert?

Expert: a person who has special skill or knowledge in some particular field; specialist; authority: a language expert.

People- I have dealt with all kinds of people in all kinds of situations over the years.  Some say I am a people person.  The DISC assessment testing says I am a communicator.  I am good at communicating information or ideas.  ?

Advertising- I have 12 years experience as a Yellow Page advertising sales representative.   I have build thousands of ads over the years.  Each one being different and I have become very good at building content and designing ads that get results.

Business planning- I have done 4 complete business plans.  Two were for my businesses and two where for others.   All were very good.  I actually had the banker tell me that it was the best business plan he had seen in 20 years.

Goal setting- I have been setting goals for over 15 years.  I have seen many of these goals become reality. 

I am not trying to pat myself on the back.  These are experiences I have had that may qualify me as an expert. 

What are you an expert at?

Write it out as I have. Does your resume reflect these things.  Does your employer know this about you?

This is a great tool to help build your self image and your professionalism.
