Things to Think About - If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier

“If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur.” Anonymous

I came across this quote many years ago as a young professional. And, while it did put a smile on my face, reading it then, also gave me a deep respect for all those people who are dedicated to their profession, whatever it may be. Being a professional is more than just a word or title. Professionals are people who believe in continuous self-improvement, growth and the integrity of what they do. Beyond quality, true professionals, deliver value that withstands the test of time. Whether it’s a shoe repair person, a plumber, an architect or a lawyer, working with a professional saves time and money, not to mention the anguish of dealing with an amateur.

Good luck on your journey!
