We rarely question our CPA, our neurologist, or our air-conditioner repair person when he tells us the cause of our difficulty and recommends a solution. Why? There’s power in the perception of specialized expertise. If you establish your credentials in a certain field early, people seldom question them. They’ll give you the benefit of the doubt on your facts and conclusions more often than not.
