On becoming an expert in your industry

What does it take to become an expert in your field?Industry Expert

The more time I’ve spent developing my career, the more I come to this simple conclusion: Proclaim yourself to be an expert and so shall it be.

No, I’m not advocating being a faker. I’m simply asserting that becoming an expert requires a willingness to stand up and declare yourself an expert when you find that you could have written every blog post, NY Times article, Tweet, white paper you have seen for the last six months.

Next question: Once you come to this conclusion, do you join the publishing clutter? Write a white paper? Submit to a conference? Let me know what you think.
