It’s another great opportunity to write today. Welcome once again. Today we are going to consider the aspect of experts. What I mean by experts are people who are highly skilled, experienced and specialized in their respective fields of professionalism. You might for example need a certified accountant to guide you regarding your accounting system, internal controls, taxation etc. You might also need a marketing consultant to help you develop some marketing strategies to move your enterprise forward in terms of market share, branding, media, etc. You might also need an acquisition specialist and lawyer to guide you through the process of buying that business you have all along been eyeing, to add to your business portfolio. I believe you understand what I mean by experts? Don’t you?
Now, you have got to be a smart entrepreneur, because in today’s diverse world there are sometimes fake experts who move up and down deceiving people and taking undue advantage of ignorant entrepreneurs. While some fields such as accountancy are regulated in many countries, other fields are not, and you could find yourself regretting why you ever used an ‘expert’. My objective today in this blog is one – to share some pieces of advice that can help you when selecting experts to guide you in your entrepreneurial decisions and actions. Even if you are not hiring an expert today, you might need this knowledge for tomorrow. You never can tell when you will rush to an expert. Can you? OK – so what are some of the key or top considerations to put into perspective when selecting experts?
I guess it’s time to get moving now. If your enterprise is valuable to you – and I do hope so – and you are reaching out to get expert help in whatever entrepreneurial challenge you have, please kindly do the right thing in the spirit of entrepreneurship. Get the right expert! It’s better to be wise and proactive than come back whining about some bad consultant who did not do this, did not do the other, did the wrong thing, wasted your hard-earned money, cheated you, was a fake, hardly had a clue of the problem, was a bad recommendation, blah blah blah! You will only have yourself to blame – nobody else.

Sincerely – and nice weekend,
