That’s right. I love Kangaroos! More than life itself. I sleep in a mother’s pouch, I research them all day and I like to kiss them as this guy does in the picture below. I am the Kangaroo Expert! Fear me.
What’s the point of this? The point is my problem with people calling themselves experts.
I worked at Facebook, created Community Next, bring people together with Entrepreneur27 and I like people. Where in this world did I become a social network / community expert? I am not saying I don’t understand it well but is there a rule book about when people can start labeling themselves “experts.”
The best part of this rant are the people who have never done ANYTHING and somehow they are now experts in a field. Have they every slept in a Kangaroo’s pouch? Have they ever created something from scratch? Does reading a lot of books about something make you an expert?
What makes someone an expert?
