Experts can be expensive and there’s nothing wrong with that – provide an excellent service and you deserve good pay.
The trouble is many of us don’t have the money to pay for expert services. This is why I do much of the basic level skills myself. If I need to hire someone who charges by the hour, I want them spending those hours doing things I don’t know how (or want) to do myself.
I can take care of the simple things myself. This is what I’m doing with my office renovation. I can build the desk but someone else can work with electricity.
