Are you a leading authority in what you do? People will pay more if you are a leading authority in what you do.
I first heard the words leading authority about eighteen months ago when I came across the website of a gentleman called Greg Habstritt www.simplewealth.com. Greg has been an entrepreneur for many years and believes that becoming a trusted authority allows you to achieve your version of ‘Freedom without Compromise”.
If you are called to be an authority in what you are currently doing, it takes persistence and perseverance; one of the key ingredients is to develop the mindset of a learner.
I remember reading one of Malcolm Gladwell’s books a few years ago and he reckoned it took 10,000 hours to be an expert. How many hours of your life have you put into becoming a leading authority in your field.
