Stop trying to be better than your competition.

And start figuring out how you can be different. Too many startups trying to figure out how they can be better than the competition – a better product, better service, better features, better price … What they really should be doing is figuring out how they can simply be different than the competitors. What is their unique business value proposition that they can offer to their customers? Once you figure it out, you will not only stand out but find your product-market fit. Gather your team and ask these answers:

  1. What are you doing that your competitors aren’t;
  2. What are you doing like your competitor, that you can change for good?
