Why Not Start at the Top?


Why do you have to start at the bottom?

Being  seen as the expert or authority in your field often means that you have been working in this area for many years, studied, experienced or may be even researched it , you may have a degree or masters, the main ingredient is time spent in this field.

You cannot just wake up one morning and be the authority in a field you have chosen or can you?

This seems like a typical statement you read on the web- “Becoming a CEO doesn’t happen overnight, CEO’s work their way through the ranks and rise to the top thanks to a combination of hard work, presentence, traits and qualities that make him or her top – notch business leader.”

Some of the great entrepreneurs state to be successful look at what the masses are doing and do the opposite, as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome is insanity.

This is called conditioning we are programmed that this is the path we must follow to achieve success.

Some of the great Entrepreneurs who have become experts in their field will ask you, why do you have to do this?  Don’t be one of the masses “Do the opposite”.

There are of course exceptions to the rule, you don’t want the brain surgeon to only have 6 weeks training instead of six years, the results would be terrible.

You decide tomorrow you are going to open your own business up, that means tomorrow you become a owner and CEO of your business, no experience, you are now one.

There are people who have been given a business due to a death in the family and they have to walk in and be the senior management, did they start at the top Yes.

Then why cannot you.

I had a family friend who decided one day to become an accountant at a large business, he went for the job, sold himself and got the position, No Experience, No Degree, absolutely nothing , yet he got the job.

He started his first day, and was shown what to do. He then stated that at his last job they did it differently so he was shown what to do and of he went, he never was found out not to have his degree and he did a excellent job.

Was this starting at the top as the expert?  He may not have lied or he may of, I do not like to lie or deceive anybody, it all depends on how the questions were asked and his answers.


It is proof that you can start at the top.


If you want to be a CEO why start at the bottom and learn all these skills that CEO’s don’t use, why not train and learn the skills CEO”s Need, this would make far more sense.

To add some more evidence of starting higher up on the ladder

A mother worked in the field of writing, her son wanted to be a high level manager, the both concluded why start at the bottom.

The mother working with her son wrote a compelling resume for her son to take at his interviews for top level positions, yet he had never worked in these fields before.

The resume worked and the son was offered the higher position job, he had the passion and vision the skills are the easy part to learn.

There were no lies or deceiving in this resume, just well crafted words displaying his attributes he would be bringing.

This could be you jumping the rungs off success and being seen as the expert immediately.
