We've got another great episode for you today all about when to call yourself an expert. There's so many people in our industry that say if you know 10% more than the people around you, then you're an expert and you should absolutely be able to teach them. You'll have to listen to our episode to learn exactly what we think... but we'll give you this little reminder: it all comes down to being honest and genuine with your audience.

Inside this episode you'll hear:

  • What we think the "10% rule" means
  • Where calling yourself an expert can get sticky
  • Why there's nothing wrong with owning that you aren't an expert
  • The difference between "expert" and "educator"
  • How to be there for others + help them while staying genuine to your brand
  • Tips to navigate the transition into the education space
  • A reminder to focus on being honest and transparent with your audience
