ALL THE EXPERTS – Some thoughts on expertise

In Musings by Chris Foley

Have we reached PEAK EXPERT? This has been coming up a lot lately in my Mastermind group and in conversations I’ve been having with friends and colleagues: What does it even mean to be an expert at something? I’m seeing a rather disconcerting trend whereby folks who take a couple of online classes and decide that they’re going to put their own (tragically minor) spin on it and go into business teaching that thing themselves. The trouble is that this person isn’t an expert; they just took a couple of courses and now they’re going to regurgitate this plagiarized shit back on their own customers. How do you tell the difference?
