“What does it take for me to become an authority in the marketplace?”
– You need to demonstrate knowledge of your craft. Be a life long learner, ideas and methods are changing regularly keep up with what is changing. Read, research and discuss. Knowledgeable people surround themselves with peers where ideas can be shared and refined.
– Even though you are required to work in the day to day, which can often be mundane, you must never lose your focus on the “Big Picture”. Businesses, families and relationships grow for people with vision. They are always looking ahead, yet doing the right things now to see their vision fulfilled.
– Passion is the emotion that drives you to keep pressing on. It is what gives you perseverance to overcome setbacks, to go through 10 “no’s” to get 1 “yes” because you know the service you offer will benefit them.
