How To Become A Subject Matter Expert In Any Field By Angela Ibukunoluwa Komolafe

A day to teach us from your wealth of knowledge, experience, and expertise.

I know some people will be thinking that they don’t have anything to share because they are not experts. They don’t have any area of expertise.

Let me make this clear,

There is something you know that I don’t know. You can share that even if you are not yet an expert in any field.

Anyway, that’s by the way. That’s not my focus for today. My focus for today is to teach you the simple ways to become an expert in any field.

An expert is someone who has vast knowledge, skill and experience in a particular field or area. For example, I am an expert in the field of writing and personal development.

When it comes to helping people become better writers and better version of themselves, I’m your go-to girl.

This is because I have a piece of considerable knowledge and experience in those areas.
