"It's getting harder and harder to do this. The online world is so crowded. There is just to much competition." This was the defeated opening monologue from the person who had hired me to help them build their business.

With which I agreed. There is a ton of competition online for almost everything. If you are now looking for an opportunity to build a business, you are looking at a very crowded market.

Great Post. I learned long ago not to bother with the competition. Just get in the game. If you serve your clients well competition will not be an issue.

Simply perfect, John! Great point - great story. 

I was listening to this podcast last weekend and Seth Godin said something along the lines of, be your own number one client. Your post reminded me of this thought. Maybe it's the Godin way to say, “The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time.”

John,

I love how you encouraged people to just "get in the game".  You are exactly right, just get started because no action gets you nowhere. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks buddy!
The number of car manufactures floored me as well!

Totally agree that competition is good for us.

Wow dude I didn't realize that there was that much competition. I think that competition is good for you! It is about finding the people who like working with you! There is something to be said of the deliverer of the message or product, not just the thing we're buying. Thanks for reminding us how important it is to build the best business we can and let the rest go from there.

You always have such an elevated view of things John - I love it! It always gets me encouraged and motivated.

Mike,
I have heard Seth Godin say over and over that this Internet revolution is a bigger deal than the industrial revolution. What a great time to live!

Thanks
John

Thanks for the kind words.
I loved that quote as well. I wish I had said it!

John, what is great about today's world is the ability to niche down and find an audience. The internet has given rise to this. I worked for a catalog and small publications printer in the late 90's and the niche world lived there but those really small niche hobbies for example were hard to find. The internet has forever changed things.

John, this message of moving forward even in a "over-crowded online world" is incredibly encouraging and timely for me. I especially like Henry Ford's quote: “The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time.”

I want that to be me - the one who who makes her own business better.  Thank you for sharing the truth through history.
