The Blue Ocean
Traditionally one thinks of all business as being in competition with others in the same field. What if there was a way to differentiate yourself from the pack? In the book Blue Ocean Shift, the focus is to move from the "Red Ocean" of competition to the "Blue Ocean" of uniqueness. This week I challenge everyone to think of one way to set their business apart from others in their field. Recently I met with a real estate professional who is swimming in a "red ocean" of peers. We brainstormed on ways to set himself apart from everyone else in his highly competitive profession. One of the keys was to make the whole buying and selling fun for everyone involved. It will be interesting to watch his clientele grow! I definitely recommend that everyone read Blue Ocean Shift. It will change your perspective on your business and your life!
