Becoming an expert these days is one of the most valuable assets that you can build as an entrepreneur.
But here is the question: what makes you an expert?
Malcolm Gladwell said that to be an expert takes at least 10,000 hours of practice in the area that you want to master.
But is that enough?
I don’t know you but used to feel overwhelmed about the idea of “pretending” to be an expert.
Anyway. In this episode, I want to share with you my idea of been seen as an expert, which is not necessary that guy wearing a suit and tie talking on CNN.
All is much simpler than that and begins when you find something —anything— that you can do so effortlessly and other people find it almost impossible to do.
I’ll tell you in this episode how my dad discovered that I was an expert in opening emails. True story.
In which area are you already an expert?
Now is your turn.
Come on, let’s do a little exercise, I want you to write down on the comments section 3 areas where you are good at.
Don’t worry about finding that big thing where you are great at, focus on little things. For example, I am good at cooking Spanish omelette.
No big deal for a lot of people, but there is a bunch of people who want to learn how to cook a delicious Spanish omelette I can teach them the perfect recipe.
What about you?
