Do you think Google was the first search engine? AirBnb.com the first online vacation rental site? Dropbox the first online file storage company?

No. No. No.

Why does this matter?

Because it’s the most common excuse wantrapreneurs like to give for staying on the sidelines.

“Someone's already doing this... it already exists.” is their reason.

Bull-oney.

It’s nothing but a convenient cop-out that keeps you from making your biggest impact.

If anything, I get pumped when I see competitors, especially big ones making bank.

It means there’s a market.

It means I can hire their top staff.

It means I have competition to make me better.

How do you compete?

That’s what I cover in this week’s video.

If you’re still struggling to find a way to make a meaningful dent in your competitive market, leave a comment with your challenges and I’ll reply with my thoughts.

Be sure to provide context so I can be ultra specific in my recommendations.

Here’s to the crazy ones who go into battle when the guns are shooting!

I used to believe ANYONE could be an entrepreneur.

Until the day my friend Julie went bankrupt.

When she started her business, I was pumped... probably more so than I should’ve been.

She left our meeting excited to take on the challenges and get going.

The reason she failed is because she didn’t understand her role in relation to her business...

... which caused major gaps (like sales) to occur.

At a high-level there’s 3 business personalities.

Understanding which one you fall under is the first key in making sure you’re surrounded by team members and advisors who can lift you up and fill in your gaps.

In this week’s video I go over all 3 Business Personality Types and how each aren’t better than the other, just different.

Think you’re an “Entrepreneur”? Think again... be sure to watch the video to understand how to self identify...

... but at a high level it comes down to one of the following:

- Artist (or E-Myth calls it: Technician)
- Manager
- Entrepreneur

So what do you do if you discover that you’re an Artist, or Manager?

That’s a big question...

... maybe I’ll cover it in an upcoming video :)

Till then I have a favor to ask... I would love for you to leave a comment with your honest assessment of which one you are?

No judgement, just curious.

Talk soon.
