If you don’t know how to do something or don’t have time to learn how to do it properly, hire an expert. My philosophy is that if you can’t be an expert or don't know an expert, you should always hire an expert. -- Use an expert to find another expert in the same profession. -- Be prepared to pay for any advice you get, even when all you are asking your first expert to do is recommend a second expert. The junk dealer thought he’d give it another try and got expert help from a mining engineer who did an assessment of the lease.
