Is Your Experience an Asset or Liability?

Last week, as I spent a weekend morning finishing up work at a crowded Starbucks, a random woman approached and asked if she could grab the other end of my table.

I obliged.

I learned that she studied Art History and worked in art advisory; I had yet to meet anyone who had ever evaluated art and I was immediately curious.

The problem? I didn’t know the first thing about art.

I panicked.
