The 1% Expert
If you know more than 1% of the population in a specific field, you’re an expert.
You don’t need a degree, or a long experience, or even a published study to establish your legitimacy.
The only fact that you know more than 1% of the population is enough.
In the future, you’ll know more than 2%, then more than 5%, and so on.
And that will make you even better, for sure.
But you still remain an expert as long as you know more about your field than most people do.
So don’t worry about publishing your work, talking about it, selling it, and recommending it to other people.
Experience feeds expertise.
if you can bring useful knowledge, you’re done.
