Today I saw this person start to create a new consulting business in a category where she had no formal training in. Interestingly enough, even the person was saying herself that by no means is she a certified expert of any sort as she is simply a person that has been around a longtime and is now willing to offer advice for a fee on certain matters based on her experience.
It was interesting in one aspect as many people would think you must go through some kind of rigorous training course where you have to have all the certifications in the world until you can start like say a business. In some cases like this though when you think about it it really does boil down to the practical experience and whether or not the service you provide fixes the problem that people have. Basically, it’s mainly about the results.
