Dorie Clark - 3 Elements of Becoming a Recognized Expert

tips from podcast guests Aug 27, 2021

Insight and inspiration for flying higher in the difference only you can make from guests who have appeared on Creative on Purpose Live.

This week's wisdom comes from Dorie Clark, author of The Long Game. Tune into the entire conversation here.

[DORIE] One of the things that I've really spent a lot of time thinking about is, you know for people who do want to make an impact, there's a million things you could be doing. Where do you get the biggest ROI? What does that look like?

And so I created something. It's a free tool. It's a free self-assessment called the Recognized Expert Self-Evaluation Toolkit. And it is a scored self-assessment that you take and based on your score it actually gives you a personalized recommendation of where you should be applying your efforts.

Broadly speaking, what I've discovered is that in order to become a recognized expert, three key components: content creation (sharing your ideas), social proof (building your credibility), and third is building your network.

Generally, for a lot of people, we naturally are maybe good at one of these, maybe two, who knows? But usually, it's very rare that you're good at all three. And so it means you have to sort of apply your effort strategically and think about how to round out your portfolio.

So for folks that might be interested in getting it for free go to and you can download it. You can get your scores and figure out your prescription for where you should be investing your time and energy so that your ideas can be heard more.

Dorie just shared a three actionable tips on establishing yourself as a recognized expert that easily understood and executed. How can you apply them today?
