I am fired up today and I have to tell you why! I saw a post on Facebook that read, “I do not believe that anyone who is a true expert in their craft, should have less than 10,000 followers on social media!”
The reactions to that post broke my heart. I saw a woman who worked so hard creating a program and was now questioning if she should even launch it because she doesn’t have 10,000 followers.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re not worthy of being called an expert in your field. That is a lie.
Do you feel like an expert? Do you question why someone would actually pay for your program or whatever service you’re offering? If you have ever felt that way before, know that it stems from imposter syndrome and know that you are not alone.
We should not be telling ourselves this lie and certainly should not be telling others the same lie!
“Just because you don’t have thousands of followers on social media doesn’t mean that you are not a credible qualified expert!” – Michelle Vroom
Let’s reverse this lie! This lie that we are not worthy of calling ourselves, experts. Here are 3 things that make you qualified to be an expert (and not one of them is about your number of followers).
You need to have the desire for whatever it is that you’re putting out there. When you have that desire and passion, that is what makes you an expert. It’s because you are excited about what you offer and you know that it can change lives!
Even if you’re just starting out, I guarantee that you have experience that makes you qualified to do what it is that you do. It may not be experience that comes from in the form of clients just yet, but everyone has to start somewhere. You can have experience from a previous job, or maybe you’ve helped a family member or friend. You are more qualified than you realize!
Your Willingness to Grow
Are you willing to learn new things? Will you step out of your comfort zone and invest in yourself? Here’s the thing…it’s hard to call yourself an expert if you are not willing to grow. If you’re not willing to make investments that you know are going to help you learn more and take your business to the next level. You’ve got to be willing to grow. A true expert knows that she is not really an expert. At the end of the day, there is no one in this world that knows everything about everything!
