This is such an interesting thread and something I am now facing.
As some of you may know I sold my business a few months ago. I started it from scratch and nobody knew of me. I was at the bottom of the pile! No leader, no guru and certainly no expert. The competition was huge and I never thought I would become a leader or even manage to sell my business. Getting clients, gaining an online presence, pr etc. was a huge challenge. But I love a challenge and I'm very competitive, its what drives me
By the time I had come to sell my business, I had offices, employed staff, was in national and local press, been on the radio several times, speaker at business events and attended Downing Street.
I'm not writing this post to show off as we all have our own achievements but my point is that I started from nothing then (and I had never been in business so knew literally nothing!) but achieved huge success.
I'm now at the bottom of the pile with my opportunity. Nobody has heard of me within the MLM world. My competitors are doing incredibly well and at the moment aren't even giving me the time of day
I believe strongly that I will become a leader and an expert again. I don't worry or feel threatened by my competitors, if anything I use
them. I look at what they are doing, what I don't like and what I do like and the things I like that they are doing - do better and bigger
Competition is healthy, its what drives us and we can learn from it. We all have to start somewhere and with determination, hard work and passion we can all get there if that's what we want.
Remember that a lot of these guru's have created
their stories, their profiles. How true are they? Do you actually know how successful they really
are. I entered into an award for Best Mumpreneur of the Year, on the back of that I managed to get an invite to Downing Street, be on TV, loads of press and speaking engagements. All from entering an award that ANYONE
Be creative, look outside the box. Think of things that are different. Don't be scared to try different things if it works for you.
Becoming a leader doesn't happen overnight so take your time. It will happen if you really want it to.
