"Professional" used to mean possessing a minimum qualification, such as a BSc, BA, BEng etc. from a recognised institution/college/university, having completed a course of study, and examined, and passed accordingly.
Nowadays labelling oneself as professional seems to occur at random all over the place. IMHO the term "professional" has become an overused cliche, and rather meaningless.
As Internet marketers, what is your view and/or understanding on this?
