This is an industry where a little knowledge is more dangerous than no knowledge at all.

This was a good one! I especially smiled over the "YOU DON’T DESERVE THAT KEYWORD". Conveying this politely is tough. And yet, honest! Thanks for the good read. Miriam

I appreciate the feedback. Some of these points are reminders. But for some, they’re a good way to size up the level of current level of expertise (if you’re honest) and it works as a call to get more help if you’re lacking in an area. Accountability is a key to success. -Mike

Great quick write-up, no one said SEO was easy; as this would be a great "What am I about to get into" SEO intro
