I came to strongly believe that the lack of respect in professions is due to the lack of respect that pros themselves give to all other different professions than theirs.
I know, it sounds twisted but pay attention, if you are a self-employed pro, when you find yourself dealing with some other pros.
If one underestimates somebody else’s fields of work and kinda” takes it lightly”, this one becomes the beginning of the chain that will take his/her
own works undervalued, eventually.
It’s a natural process of action/reaction, law and effect.
