We've all asked people their opinions because we think that they might know more than we do about something. I ask Vern if I've got a question about pocket watches. I ask Dan or Jeff if I've got a question about advertising or bottles. I ask Chris if I've got a question about Oriental antiques. In this week's show I examine the times when we might need to go to the next step--not ask a friend, but ask an expert who will likely charge a fee for his or her opinion. When does that pay off and when doesn't it? I've got multiple examples of when it doesn't, and a few in which it does, but when it does, it can make all the difference! It can be worth tens of thoussands of dollars. I'll share with you in this week's show those cases where I would have been completely stymied without going for outside help. In today's world advances in technology have made specialists all the more important, and, I ask you, what do you know about FTIR or XRF? Do you own one of these machines? But maybe sometime you'll need one. Please join us for this week's show on Using Outside Experts.
