In today’s episode Jessica shares how we are all experts in our own lives. Similar to a snowflake, we are all unique and have different skill sets and perspectives that make us experts in our own rite.Even if we have read the same books, listened to the same podcasts or watched the same movies; our unique lived experiences create life through a singular lens that can’t be replicated. 

Jessica dives deep into the concept of what being an expert is, what that really means for you, and what the 3 types of expert are. By analyzing and taking these concepts into account, you will begin to create awareness around which type of expert you are in which area of your life. Spoiler alert: we are all a combination of the three! Knowing the role you play in your own world will help you begin taking immediate aligned action.

We hope you enjoy the show and we can’t wait to hear what kind of expert you are!
