    its all relative. dont u get it? i dont have have to outrun the bear, i just have to outrun you. i was out in long island, visiting my uncle. my uncle took me to his nieghbors house, his nieghbor was losing two alberta spruce. the nieghbor talked to his "landscaper'' about it, the landscaper told him its was from drought, and fungus. i told the nieghbor to go inside and get me a paper plate. i put it under the spruce, shook it, and then showed him the tiny red dots running around the plate. now, compared to his landscaper, i looked like a "professional", in reality, im just a bit more knowledgable than the other guy, does this make me a professional? i dont know. i think he said his landscapers name was glan something or other, i forget, but my point is, to be a "professional", u dont have to be great, just better than the competition. am i better than the competition? im better than some, not as good as others. bottom line is, are you accomplishing what YOU want to accomplish? if the answer is yes, than you are a professional. do you have what you need, and some of what you want? if you do, then you are a professional. by the way, how do u spell, professional?
