unlike other tech folks who have the "if I'm the only person who knows how to do 
x, then that's job security" mentality, I document the living shit out of 
everything I do.   I've heard that one way to move "up" in a company is to train 
someone to do your job.   I've yet to see that actually happen, probably because 
I'm right under the COO on the org chart, lol.

Improve your communication skills.
Is your knowledge accessible so others can work with you and benefit from it?
All the certs in the world won't help you if you cannot confer and receive 
knowledge from your fellow humans.
