What makes someone an “EXPERT?”

It is fascinating (and also annoying) to me how many people consider themselves “Social Media Experts”. Another is popular one is “Life Coach.” What qualifies you?

I don’t consider myself an expert on anything. Even the things that I am the most savvy, I have a lot to learn and yet I notice people that clearly appear to know less then I do are “Gurus.”

I respect true “Experts” and “Coaches” I admire and want to learn from them. I find it irresponsible and also annoying for people to claim to be an expert or coach when they do not have any real credentials to back it. I also find that in many cases it is just to exploit people that are less informed.

Great post by Peter Shankman "Is your social media expert really an expert?"
