Today there was a lady that was getting complimented so much about her cooking style where people then started to ask what type of formal training she received as she could use that as a way to further promote herself to drive more business in terms of looking professional. Her answer was an interesting one as she said she canâ€™t really say that she went through any kind of training as she learned everything from real life experiences and by the type of things that she surrounds herself with such as watching simple cooking shows.
She then threw a comment that because of that she is a little hesitant to say that she has had any training at all as in her mind people always view training as only something that is done in a formal classroom setting or by an instructor one on one. However, she believed personally that what she did to get to where she is in terms of her knowledge and expertise is equally just as good and valuable without having to spend tens of thousands of dollars.
In my opinion it is all about perception as in many cases you can either use say an education of sort to edify your qualifications or simply let the end results speak for themselves. Many times people forget that you can create your own market too as opposed to always trying to appease to a group that only has a particular way of thinking. Kind of like artists that have their own niche fans Iâ€™d say. If you are attracting people to your offerings then you are doing something right regardless if say one person has a piece of paper saying how great they are versus someone who doesnâ€™t have one.
