Never discount the power of learning a new skill or strategy. There is always a benefit from learning from other brands who have solved a specific bottleneck. Their stories are inspirational and motivational. 

The challenge is that you created a disruptive product that is better than other products you compete with. So, how do you differentiate it from your competitors and stand out on a crowded shelf? By using the same strategies your competitor’s use? 

Your selling strategy should be as innovative as your products. Sadly, this is not what you are being taught. There is a better way!  

Most brands follow the “tried and true” rinse and repeat strategies used by every other brand in the industry. It relies heavily on your ability to raise money and pay for promotions that do little to grow sales – a future conversation. 

I have a belief that CEO’s should not be perpetual fundraisers. This why I put out all my content, my podcast, tips of the week, and my courses – to change this and level the playing field between you and the most sophisticated brands in your category.  

Let’s start with your selling story and your brand health. Your selling story is the foundation you build your brand on. Your brand health is determined by the contribution you bring to the category, to the retailer, to your investors, and to your bottom line. It determines whether you will be around for a week, a month, a year, or decades.
