Hi Susan & welcome to Tweak Your Biz, it's great to see you here! I totally agree, confidence is critical towards giving prospects the right impression. Also, as you point out, you should not be afraid to try and learn new things, that's how we grow as people and as business owners. Thanks for a great first post.

Everyone want to be expert in own field! When you are expert you will have better reputation and better income. That is the goal. :)

Thank you for sharing!

Susan: What is your take on the "definition" of an expert: at least 10,000 hours on a specific topic / field / industry / job?

Martin-

I don't quantify being an expert. As I say, fake it til you make it. At first, it's more important that others see you as an expert. As you have achievements, you'll feel that way too.

Hi Susan,

Of course, everyone learns on the job, whether they work for themselves or for someone else. Just be sure you know the difference between something you have at least the basic skills to figure out and a situation where you are in way over your head. Thanks for sharing with the BizSugar community!

Agreed. I guess that should be the caveat: you can't do it all. Figure out what you're good at and hire for the rest.
