What makes you professional is experience
First of all the definition of a professional is: A professional is a member of a profession or any person who earns their living from a specified professional activity. Too many people complain because someone is doing something without being “qualified” to do that job. I’ll tell you right now that that is a bunch of lies!! What makes someone a professional is their experience. I know plenty of people who are way more qualified than someone who has a paper. Heck! I was one of those people for a bit who wasn’t qualified, but i had a diploma saying I was!! You’ve got to get that experience before you can call yourself a professional. A piece of paper just isn’t enough!!!
