How Do You Develop Authority?
You hear this word "Authority" thrown around these days. People use it for all kinds of reasons. In one sense, authority is a word that describes the depth of a person's knowledge. On another level, it simply means the power to which an individual has been elevated over others. Either way, people respect it.
Authority can be abused. It can be acquired in less than honorable ways. But when legitimate, authority is a powerful force and when used for good it's even more powerful. And that's why you want to focus your efforts on becoming an authority in your niche.
