Make the most of something means, according to Cambridge Dictionary:

"to use or enjoy something as much as possible"1

In your case you might want to rephrase it as:

make the most of your expertise.

That way, your expertise is the object, rather than it, which is kind of vague. So by putting it like this you emphasise your expertise, which is probably what you want to achieve.

  • Thank you JJJ, Can we correct this express as : " make the most of your expertise ?" – James Cox Mar 20 '18 at 3:37
  • @JamesCox that is what you want to say, right? To use your expertise as much as possible, or did you want to say something else? – JJJ Mar 20 '18 at 3:39
  • My means is: The God gives you a talent that other people doesn't have. So this is your unique value in this society. You should deploy it as much as possible to get benefit from value for you and others around you. As I use Chinese. So I hope get English good people help me correct use English to express this meaning in very nature like English. Thanks for your guidance. – James Cox Mar 20 '18 at 3:51

    "You just have to play with the cards that you're dealt"-- Michael Scott. Maybe that's something? The cards represent different talents and everyone has been given a different set of cards (talents). – JJJ Mar 20 '18 at 4:05
  • you meant that the slogan should be as : < You just have to play with the cards that you are dealt > Is it? – James Cox Mar 21 '18 at 5:11
