Your Responsibility as an Expert

To thrive in this business for the long haul you must be willing to take on this responsibility for yourself and for others. Being ethical in business is also critical to long-term success as an expert. It’s a small world in the expert business, and if you don’t treat people right, the word gets out fast.
