Every founder needs to think like a
Category Creator, not a market disruptor
This is what we call a Category King or Queen.
Being Differentis better than being better
Being Different is its own race.
And it’s so much more
In business, being different is a value greater than almost anything else.
Being better is just a comparison to your competition…It is a temporary state that has you looking over your shoulders, constantly waiting for your competitors to launch a new product or service.
Today the products, technology, politicians or people we pay most attention to are different.
You could say that where you and your dreams are now is totally by design. You may have a big dream that needs transforming from a yearning to a strategic plan of action. Hope is not a plan.
Right actions by design can create hope however. If your vision and values are well articulated, your plan is sharp, your team are aligned and your market is also primed you can create the change in the world you would like to see.
You need a
Point Of View
No matter how fabulous your concept or product is, nobody buys a solution without a problem.
A point of view frames this problem and lays out the impact of not acting. It sets out a vision. One different from the current status quo and explains the opportunities for those who embrace it.
It is straightforward, impactful and visceral. It is essentially a story that elicits an emotional response.
It tells people what you stand for. It is the lightning rod that captures the imagination of everyone with any connection to the business. From staff to investors, and everyone in between.
It is the story of your new category, the full entrancing landscape. Your new horizon.
Importantly, it also shifts your audience’s point of view on the world. It makes everything that has come before seem inefficient or outdated.
