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.
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!

ABOUT DAN MARTELL
“You can only keep what you give away.” That’s the mantra that’s shaped Dan Martell from a struggling 20-something business owner in the Canadian Maritimes (which is waaay out east) to a successful startup founder who’s raised more than $3 million in venture funding and exited not one... not two... but three tech businesses: Clarity.fm, Spheric and Flowtown.
You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force.
An activator, a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie and, yes, a romantic (ask his wife Renee), Dan has recently turned his attention to teaching startups a fundamental, little-discussed lesson that directly impacts their growth: how to scale. You’ll find not only incredible insights in every moment of every talk Dan gives - but also highly actionable takeaways that will propel your business forward. Because Dan gives freely of all that he knows. After all, you can only keep what you give away.
