Becoming an 'expert'.

Version 3

    Many vocations involve education and training in order for you to become an expert. But, some fields have no official title once you get your degree or training. That was our particular dilemma. Becoming a "Child safety expert" is something you are constantly doing, although ask any mother who has successfully raised a child into adulthood and she will, with great pride, claim the title of 'expert'!

    The statistics, technology and resources are constantly changing to keep up with the predators. They seem to always be one step ahead; I emphasize the word "Seem". They are NOT one step ahead, we just have to be diligent in keeping our kids safe. The resources are out there and police agencies are readily willing to assist parents.

    The catch to becoming a child safety expert or an expert in any field is to be creative.
    Research your field all the time, as things change around the clock.
    Get into the trenches, find out what people want to know and be willing to find the answers to their questions, don't say what you think they want to hear.
    Ask questions of your own. Woodrow Wilson once said, "No student knows his subject: the most he knows is where and how to find out the things he does not know". The insight you get from others can be invaluable.
    Don't be afraid to go out on a limb. If you have an idea or concept that you believe in, find even just one other person who believes in it as well. Together you can change the world! Don't believe it can happen? That is how our company was founded!
