Qualified vs Certified 

Can you recognize the differences?

They may have:

  • Read books
  • Taken courses
  • Gotten a degree
  • Studied the “data”

But have they:

  • Stood up for themselves
  • Failed spectacularly 
  • Experimented
  • Taken risks

They may have certifications or letters next to their name but that doesn’t mean they have lived experiences. 

It doesn’t mean they understand what you are going through. 

Be careful who you are taking advice from. 

They may not be qualified to give it.
