Becoming an expert can be easier than it sounds:
1. Be interested in something. Have a thirst for more knowledge on the topic.
2. Know it’s “application” This could be need or resource motivated.
“Need” example: My son wants to play guitar… Learn about brands, Fender, etc, Amps, Tube Amps, Reverbs, etc. You will become an expert…
“Resource” example: The area you live in could have been the original manufacturing site for; marbles, or radios, etc. A prime resource for collecting items in this special field. You will become an expert…
3. You find something good! When you do, you research it, and find out more about the topic. You will see more again later, and now know more about it. You will become an expert…
4. Instant “expert” Sometimes just listening to other pickers waiting in line to go into a sale, or when they are bragging outside about what they found makes you start being an expert. Your natural curiosity will take over. You will become an expert…
These things will open more doors for you!
